26th May 1934T&FMardykeView1639Despite having won more events than UCD, UCC lost out to UCD on a count back of 3rd placings, the rationale being that the 1st and 2nd placings had already been scored. Applying current countback rules in team competitions, UCC would have been declared the winners on basis of number of events won. Had UCD and UCC been equal on number of events won, UCD would have won on the number of 2nd placings and so on if equal on number of 2nd placings.
7th Jun 1930T&FMardykeView1236Starter was J.J. Buckley and Chief Judge R.J. Rowlette
5th Jun 1926T&FMardykeView1628Fine weather favoured the Intervarsity Championships. The No. 2 Army band entertained the spectators during interludes in the competition. The arrangements were all that could be desired. A fairly large crowd attended. The starter was Mr D. Power.
10th Jun 1922T&FCorkView1235The competition was essentially confined to three Colleges as Queen's sent only one competitor (R.B. Wilson in 100 yards) owing to a clash with examinations. There was a fair attendance and the weather was good. In the published results of these championships, U.C.D. is referred to as "National University". The track was 'five laps to the mile, circular, and with practically no finishing straight'.
3rd Jun 1912T&FMardykeView1024The championships were to be held on Saturday 1 June 1912 but had to be postponed until the following Monday due to thunderstorms and torrential rain that lasted for several hours, causing severe flooding of the athletic track and grounds. The contest took place on the then recently acquired football grounds of University College Cork on the Mardyke. The Cork Constitution wrote of the venue - "It is well equipped for athletics as the sod is excellent, the situation perfect and every facility is at hand for the competitors." Trinity College Dublin, Queen's University of Belfast, University College Dublin and University College Cork competed. No reason was given in reports of this meeting for the absence of University College Galway. The QUB team was weakened by the absence of their ace sprinter S. McComb (I.A.A.A. Champion at 100 y in 1912). There were only eight events, with no throws or hurdles. Three athletes competed for Trinity College in each of the 100y and 440y. The reasons for this are unknown. While the weather was bright with an early start and the weather prospects seemed hopeful, this changed rapidly with a downpour after 1.00 pm. The remainder of the meeting was conducted under what were described as depressingly wet conditions until the close of the sports. With these prevailing conditions there were no performances of exceptional merit. The Ladies' Challenge Cup, presented to the University College Dublin Athletic Union by the ladies of the College, was won by UCD, as the team gaining the largest number of points. The whereabout of this Challenge Cup today is unknown. In conjunction with these University sports, School Championships were held over 100y and 880y, as well as Senior (3/5th mile) and Junior Schools relays. The Band of the Yorkshire Light Infantry provided musical strains, making best use of the covered stand. The Cork Co. Board of the GAA accused UCC of subsidising "anti-national games" and of engaging a military band when "there were civilian bands in Cork at least quite as good".
19th May 1873T&FMardykeView1422This was the first inter-collegiate athletics meeting held in Ireland. A proposition to hold an Inter-University Sports between Queen's University, Ireland and the University of Dublin, Trinity College was first mooted in May 1872 with the intent to hold the meeting in Dublin in July 1872. It is not known what became of this original proposition. The subsequent proposal of Queen's University to hold the intervarsity event in May 1973 was considered at the annual general meeting of Dublin University Athletic Club on 14 March, 1873. "The proposal of Queen's University to form an 'Inter-University Contest' was negatived, it being considered that the Champion Athletic Club would open the field for all University competition." Thus, Trinity College Dublin did not compete in the inaugural intervarsity championships in Cork, but instead hosted the inaugural Irish Champion Athletic Club Championships in College Park at the beginning of July. Nonetheless, the Queen's University inter-collegiate contest in Cork was very successful. "Considerable interest was excited by the events, owing to the fact that the competition was confined to representatives of the Galway, Belfast and Cork Colleges, and a certain amount of rivalry existed between North and South. The contests were characterised by the utmost harmony and friendly emulation, and the weather being fine, one of the largest and most fashionable gatherings ever brought together assembled in the field." [The Irish Times and Daily Advertiser, May 20, 1873, pg 3]. Cork competed in scarlet and black, Galway in blue and white and Belfast in red, blue and gold. An estimated 2,500 spectators watched the meeting. "The fête was altogether one of the most brilliant and successful of the year. The weather was beautifully fine, the arrangements of the stewards excellent and the satisfaction of the visitors complete. The Cork College had a larger number of representatives in for the several events than her western and northern sisters. The Corkonians were greatly elated at their success but freely accorded due applause to the plucky representatives of their sister colleges." [Freeman's Journal, May 20, 1873, pg.3]. Of the thirteen events on the programme, Cork won ten and Belfast three. The Patron of the meeting was His Excellency the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, John Poyntz Spencer, 5th Earl Spencer KG, PC. The principal Vice-Patrons included: the Marquis of Kildare, Charles William FitzGerald, 4th Duke of Leinster, Chancellor of the Queen's University; the Earl of Antrim, William Randal McDonnell, 6th Earl; Lord Lurgan, Charles Brownlow, 2nd Baron Lurgan KP; and Sir John Arnott, three times Lord Mayor of Cork (1859-1861) and Irish entrepreneur (Arnott's drapery store). The bands of the 17th Lancers and 15th Regiments provided musical interludes for the spectators.
