The first Compromise Rules were drawn up for Hurling-Shinty at the Tailteann Games in 1924, celebrating the revival of Celtic culture. The Ancient Tailteann games were the Celtic version of the Greek Olympic Games, and were played in 1924, 1928, and 1932, with teams and contestants called from all over the world where the Gaelic Diaspora lived.

Scotland won the first of these encounters 2-1, with Ireland winning the third 6-1. The result of the 1932 contest is currently unknown.
