The team of that time are difficult to uncover without going directly to the IRFU however, here are some.
Dr Jack Kyle Bertie O'Hanlon, Jimmy Nelson, Karl Mullen, Michael O'Flanagan, Jim McCarthy, Paddy Reid and Colm Callan. It was this team that won the Grand Slam for Ireland in 1948. I'm sure if others come across names of the remaining squad they will add here.
