14th May 1961IUAA RepresentativeLourdes StadiumView1360Irish Universities v. N.A.C.A.I. President's Selection v. The Army. This was the inaugural athletics meeting to mark the opening of the Lourdes Stadium, Drogheda. This was also the first triangular match, the three previous contests having taken place between the N.A.C.A. President's Select and Combined Universities [UCD, UCG and UCC]. The Universities competed in College singlets: U.C.D. - pale blue, U.C.C. - red; U.C.G. - Maroon; The Army competed in green singlets; the N.A.C.A.I. President's Selection competed in white singlets. The 4x110 yards relay and the 3 miles events were not held on this occasion because the meeting was abandoned about 30 min from its finish due to the death of a spectator. Jack Beare, a former competitive cyclist from Coolock, Dublin, collapsed and died in the stand. He had earlier watched his son, Jack Jnr., finish 2nd in a thrilling 2-mile cycle race on the grass in-field. However, based on maximum points available from both of these events to the NACA team, the President's select could not have won the match. This was the Universities first win in this match series.
28th Jun 1927InternationalsTerenureView1130The 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.
