England crush Ireland for 20 point victory at Twickenham.

England scored two tries in their 20 point total as they outclassed an Ireland team that failed to score.

The final score was England 20 Ireland 0.

This colour film of the game was shot by Norman Hodgson at Twickenham on the 11 February 1956. 

Norman Hodgson (1905-74) was born in Lenzie in Scotland.  He married Marjorie Towers in 1932 and came to live in Skerries in the late 1930s. The couple had four children. Norman was an avid amateur film maker who recorded many sporting and social highlights of Irish life (much of it in colour) in the late 1940s and 1950s.

Norman’s daughters Helen Hodgson and Rosalie Pickering cared for his films, camera and projector before donating the collection to RTÉ Archives.
