Abstract

1920 was quite a year in Ireland. The War of Independence was ongoing throughout the country, Cork was devastated by a series of fires that swept through the centre of the city and the Government of Ireland Act was agreed. The GAA's playing fields staged their own dramatic episodes, with the Tipperary football team at the centre of it. As the team claimed the All-Ireland title of 1920, the county's footballers reached heights they have not been reached since.
