    Tommy Fitzgerald Request

    I've a request for information which might actually be better placed in the Ireland forum, but as it's fifty odd years ago I'll try it here first.

    Tommy Fitzgerald, of one of Waterford's most famous football clans, won 11 amateur caps for Ireland during the period 1955-58. His family have received due recognition from the FAI (via John Delaney) but are keen to get as much info about the games as possible - venues/opponents/results etc...

    If anyone on foot has any relevant information, or knows where it might be found, that would be most appreciated.
    Thank you.

    I wonder do the "amateur" internationals actually refer to Inter-League games? The League of Ireland played 2 or 3 inter-league games a year in those days.

    I'd say they possibly do, Seand. That would account for the 11 caps the chap was recognised for alright.
    Now then, does anyone have any info on these games?
