Instonians 2nd XII won 8-2 against Collegians 2nds XII in an Irish Lacrosse Union Junior Shield competition on 12th June 1900.

The Irish Lacrosse Union was the Men’s Lacrosse Association in Ireland from the Late 19th to Early 20th Centuries. The Junior Shield was the second 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.
