Event data
Name: First Cordner Cup Tournament
Place: Dublin
Start date: 1 Apr. 1868
End date: 1868
 
Notes:
Only partial results available. Knockout tournament with each match apparently for the first to win five games. The report in the Westminster Papers (details from Tim Harding) cover only the first two rounds, and even for these are not complete. In round 1, Rynd gave up against G.F. Barry when the score was 3-1 for Barry. The report says the score of the S. Barry - Collins match was 3-3. S. Barry went through to the next round, but there is no mention of any further games to break the tie (though we suspect that someone had to win 5 games). Cranwell won by default in round 1 (or had a bye). At the time of the second report in the Westminster Papers, the second-round Jones-Mills match had yet to be played. Pairings for round 3 are given (Pim-White; G.F. Barry-Long; Jones or Mills-White). Harding says it is known (from club minutes and history) that G.F. Barry ultimately won. The report of the first round results in the Illustrated London News of 20 June 1868 (p.609) switches Carroll and Collins, but Carroll could not have played S. Barry in the first round as both of them appeared in the second round.
