Report

County Down (Ards and Ormeau) were victorious by a score of 5-1 against County Antrim (Instonians and Collegians) in the Irish Lacrosse Union Shaftesbury Cup in 1900, a representative competition for the best players from the ILU Clubs.

The Irish Lacrosse Union was the Men’s Lacrosse Association in Ireland from the Late 19th to Early 20th Centuries. The Senior shield was the first level league competition.

Like the Gaelic Athletic Association, the Irish Lacrosse Union season was divided into an opening season (Shield – League Competition), and closing season (Flags – Knockout / Elimination Competition). The Irish Lacrosse Union had two levels, and a representative competition between County Down and County Antrim. It was Men’s only.
