Both the Republic of Ireland & Northern Ireland failed to qualify for the World Cup in 1978. Northern Ireland were no match for World Cup Finalists Holland, meanwhile the Republic of Ireland fell to Michel Platini & France. With the wealth of talent the two teams contained, one can't help but wonder what they could have accomplished if Ireland were united.

Europe Group 4
Netherlands 2 - 2 N. Ireland (Rotterdam)
Belgium 2 - 0 N. Ireland (Liège)
Iceland 1 - 0 N. Ireland (Reykjavík)
N. Ireland 2 - 0 Iceland (Belfast)
N. Ireland 0 - 1 Netherlands (Belfast)
N. Ireland 3 - 0 Belgium (Belfast)

1. Netherlands 11 pts (Qualified)
2. Belgium 6 pts
3. N. Ireland 5 pts
4. Iceland 2 pts

Europe Group 5
France 2 - 0 Ireland (Paris)
Ireland 1 - 0 France (Dublin)
Bulgaria 2 - 1 Ireland (Sofia)
Ireland 0 - 0 Bulgaria (Dublin)

1. France 5 pts (Qualified)
2. Bulgaria 4 pts
3. Ireland 3 pts

Well I guess they are. They both are based on the idea how a united Ireland squad would have looked at that and as Ireland was never united they're fictional..
