Young Irelands of Dublin hosted Kerry’s Laune Rangers amid accusations that the pitch wasn’t properly fenced off. That wasn’t unusual at the time as most pitches were liberally measured. Kerry faced a hostile home crowd who booed decisions by the referee and attempted to intimidate the visitors. Dublin eventually won after a defensive lapse let them in for the game’s only goal.
