811th Mar 1995SUKelvin Hall, GlasgowView29138The scoring system of 6, 4, 3, 2 for each of the A & B Grades was put forward by the Scottish Universities and agreed by all teams. As a number of University teams had additional athletes it was agreed at the managers meeting that additional athletes could compete as part of their team (mainly in B Grade) with the highest placing athlete taking the relevant points. A max of two could score in either Grade regardless of the number of competitors from any participating team.

4 1st Jul 1939TCDCollege ParkView1236The 4th meeting between Irish Universities, represented by Trinity and Queen's, and the Atalanta selection took place in College Park, Trinity College. Despite interruptions by rain, the meeting was completed to schedule. The outstanding performance was that of Roderic Coote (TCD) who equalled the Irish native record for 120 yards hurdles of 15.4 sec held by Theo D. Phelan of UCD. Some controversy arose when R.G. Eccles (Edinburgh University) was called 'no jump' at 5ft 8 in the high jump competition on the grounds that his head was below his shoulder and thus he was guilty of diving. While perturbed and angry that his style was questioned, he continued in the event to win at 5ft 10 3/4 in [1.80 m]. The most discussed finish occurred in the mile when David O'Neill of Trinity was given the decision on the tape from John Muir of Glasgow University. At the final bend O'Neill had little hope of catching Muir who slowed down to a virtual walk to be caught at the finishing line, O'Neill getting the judges' nod which did not receive unanimous approval. Len Horan (TCD) putt the shot 46 ft 10 in [14.28 m] for a College Park record and took a double win in the discus with 123 ft [37.49 m]. George Craigie (TCD) won the 'hundred' and 220 yards for a sprint double. J.A.M. Robertson (Atalanta) took a double in the quarter-mile and half-mile for the third double of the meeting. Tom Maguire of Trinity College was the starter.
3 6th Jul 1938GlasgowWesterlands, GlasgowView1226Irish Universities (TCD & QUB) vs Atalanta Club (Glasgow & Edinburgh). The 1930 fixture between Atalanta and Irish Universities was to have taken place on 5th July, but this date was found unsuitable and Scottish Universities decided that they could not field a team later in the season. Atalanta's visit was postponed until June 1931. No record of a match in 1931 has been found. However, a full Ireland v Scotland International match did take place at Croke Park on 25 July, 1931. Several Irish university athletes competed - Patrick C. Moore (UCD), Theo D. Phelan (UCD), Henry R. Davies (TCD) and Dr Pat O'Callaghan (UCC). Ireland won the match 20 pts to 13 pts. The 1933 visit of Atalanta fell foul of the brewing political situation between the N.A.C.A.I., the N.I.A.A.A. and the B.A.A.B. At the twelfth hour a telegram was received from the Atalanta Club stating that their visit to Dublin had been cancelled. No specific reason was given. However, it was surmised that the Scottish team had been ordered to cancel their visit on instructions issued by or on behalf of the International Board, composed of Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland, as a consequence of the dispute between the N.A.C.A.I. and the Northern Ireland Association, and possibly also in retaliation for the ban on intervarsity competition imposed on Queen's University of Belfast by the N.A.C.A.I. A further match between Scottish Universities and Irish Universities did not become possible until the rustication of the N.A.C.A.I. from the I.A.A.F. and the formation of the A.A.U.E. The Irish Universities team for the 3rd meeting with the Atalanta Club was confined to athletes from Trinity College and Queen's University. The three colleges of the N.U.I. were excluded because they remained members of the N.A.C.A.I. The match took place at Westerlands, Glasgow University's sports grounds, on a cinder track. Atalanta won the 440 yards by default when Norman De Vere (TCD) was disqualified, after winning the race by a yard, for fouling his lane while coming up the back straight. De Vere made good his mistake by winning the 880 yards and by setting up an early lead in the relay for an Irish win. No records were set and no athlete achieved win doubles. Irish Universities won nine of the twelve events and the match comfortably.
2 3rd Jul 1929GlasgowHampden Park, GlasgowView1231The second meeting between Irish Universities and Scottish Universities was an evening event hosted in Hampden Park, the biggest terraced stadium in the world at that time with a 130,000 capacity, extended by 1937 to 183,000, and only to be surpassed in 1950 by the Estádio do Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro. A heavy shower about one hour before proceedings started possibly affected the attendance adversely, but the weather was fine during the contest. For several of the Irish track athletes this was their first experience of running on a cinder track. Dr Pat O'Callaghan and Michael Moroney made a clean sweep of the field events O'Callaghan failed by a couple of feet to throw the hammer clean off the grass onto the cinder track. The "Flying Scotsman" H.C. Maingay ran away with the half-mile in an excellent time. While the result of the contest was never in doubt by the time of the last event on the programme, the meeting closed with an epic battle in the mile relay with Patrick C Moore (IU) and Ian H. Borland (Atalanta) on the final leg fighting stride for stride down the home straight all the way to the tape, Moore winning by inches.
128th Jun 1927IUAATerenureView1130The inaugural athletics match between Irish Universities and the Atalanta Club, the combined Scottish Universities Select team from Edinburgh, Glasgow, St. Andrew's and Aberdeen, took place on the sports grounds of University College Dublin in Terenure. The Irish Universities team was selected by the Irish Inter-University Committee which organised and ran the Intervarsity Championships. This new international event in the athletic life of both countries was mooted as a fixture that would strengthen the ties between Ireland and Scotland. The Scottish team included R.D. Allison, the Scottish Universities 100y and 220y champion and ex-440y champion, A.F. Clark, Scottish 120y hurdles champion, R.B. Hoole, the Scottish 440y champion, and Dr A.P. Spark in shot putt and discus who was a member of the British Olympic Team in Paris in 1924. Based on Irish, British and world records, the Irish Times had commented the day before this contest on the backward condition of athletics in Ireland in that there were few men capable of holding their own with the front rankers of other countries. The newspaper welcomed the inauguration of the international inter-universities contest as "an important and marked advance in the development of athletics in Ireland". In its report on the contest the Irish Times further commented: "Athletics and various other branches of sport have always received a considerable amount of attention in our universities and colleges, which have given to sport athletes whose feats of skill, courage and endurance have reflected credit on their institutions... The successful launching of the [international inter-universities] contest should act a great stimulus to all who have the welfare of athletics in Ireland at heart... Thus we have in this inter-universities contest a strong incentive for our 'Varsity athletes to redouble their efforts on the training ground... And who can at the moment doubt that out of this modest beginning may emerge a regular international University contest." The outstanding performance of the Irish Universities team was that of Sean Lavan in winning the 220y and 440y, placing 2nd in the discus and anchoring the one-mile relay team to victory. The Irish and Scottish teams were entertained to supper. While the contest was scored on number of wins across the 11 disciplines, had the contest been scored as 2 for a win and 1 for the runner-up as in the next contest in 1929, Ireland would still have won by 18 pts to 15 pts.
