NoteThe combined strengths of Irish Universities, Scottish Universities, Birmingham University and a BLE Selection, together with international athletes for an invitational 3000m sponsored by Roadstone, converged on Belfield for the inaugural athletics meeting on the first tartan track in Ireland. The all-weather track cost 160,000. It was formally opened by the Taoiseach Liam Cosgrave. He fired a real .38 revolver to start the first event of the evening meeting, the 3000m steeplechase. It was his last shot in the General Election of 1977 which took place the following day, which resulted in a crushing defeat of the FG/Labour coalition. The almost 4,000 spectators were treated to three Irish native records in the 3000m, pole vault and discus and a Northern Ireland native record in the 400m hurdles during this competitive and entertaining fixture. As the evening progressed a cooling wind increased in velocity. Eamonn Coghlan chopped almost six seconds of Jerry Kiernan's month-old 3000m record. The 43-year-old Corkman Len Braham added 2.5 ft to his ten-day-old national figure. Liam Hennessy, an 18-year-old from Tipperary, leapt to the top of Irish Pole-vaulting.
