NoteIn early 1938, in a effort to maintain inter-university athletic links, U.C.D. Athletic Club wrote to U.C.G. Athletic Club, the university club which was due to host the 1938 Intervarsity Championships, requesting them to call a meeting consisting of Queen's University of Belfast, Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork, University College Dublin and University College Galway to consider the motion: "That the Irish Universities Athletic Championships (The Intervarsity Meeting) be held purely under the rules and sponsorship of the Irish Universities Athletic Council, irrespective of the athletic associations to which the participating members belong." On St. Patrick's Day 1938, Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin and University College Galway met and letters of approval for the motion were received from Queen's University of Belfast and University College Cork. Informal approaches were suggested and made to both the N.A.C.A.I. and the A.A.U.E. regarding this decision of the universities, i.e., that the Intervarsities Championships be considered a 'closed' meeting under the Irish Universities Athletic Council. While the N.A.C.A.I. agreed that the Intervarsities Championships were purely a matter for the universities, the A.A.U.E. took the contrary view, thus bringing the athletics 'split' into university athletics as well as national athletics. Thus, T.C.D., having affiliated to the A.A.U.E. in October 1937 could no longer compete in the Irish Intervarsities Track and Field Championships which continued to be held under the auspices of the N.A.C.A.I.
