Best Answer

The Republic of Ireland won international soccer matches long before 1952, but won none in 1952, their best result being a 1 - 1 draw with France. In their first ever match, on the 28th of May 1924 they beat Bulgaria 1 - 0. It was the first win of a 26 county Ireland, that we would know as the Republic of Ireland. The name Republic of Ireland came into being in 1949, though even now it still isn't the official name of the country, and the international soccer team beat Portugal 1 - 0 on the 22 May 1949.
