Despite that the matches were not officially recognised by the Irish Rugby Football Union as Test matches, it was a real tour of Irish national team. At that time, the IRFU considered as official only matches against the other Home Unions, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand. It was the third tour of a "Home Union" in Argentina in three years, after Wales (1968) and Scotland (1969), and it was the second tour of an Irish side after the tour of 1952.
Argentina won the unofficial series with two victories.
