NoteThe championships took place on a lovely afternoon with a large attendance. The ground conditions were very good. The field arrangements were well-nigh perfect and reflected great credit on Dublin University Athletic Club. The Irish Times stated that, while there were record performances, 'on the whole the form (of athletes) could not have impressed those representatives of the Irish Olympic Council who were present'. The lack of extraordinary performance was compensated for by the keenness with which the events were contested. Ed Goggins (UCC) achieved his fourth victory in the high jump in five years (he did not compete in 1923). Harry Conway's hat-trick for UCD in the 100 yards, 120 yards hurdles and long jump was the most meritorious performance. The band of the Dublin Metropolitan Police, under the baton of Hon. Inspector A.J. Norris, added to the afternoon's entertainment. This was the first year in which 'J.P. O'Sullivan' Challenge Cup was competed for. It was presented by the relatives of the late James Patrick 'J.P.' O'Sullivan of Killorgan, Co. Kerry, the 1891 Irish All-Round champion [9 events: high jump, slinging 56 lb weight, 100 yards, long jump, shot putt 16 lb, 120 yards hurdles, hammer throw, 440 yards and 1 mile, all on the same day; points were awarded as 1st - 5 pts, 2nd - 3 pts, and 3rd - 1 pts in each event. O'Sullivan, with 31 pts, placed 1st in 4 events, 2nd in 3 events and 3rd in 2 events, while T.M. Donovan of Cork, who placed 2nd overall on 30 pts, had the same number of 1st and 2nd placings, but only 1 placing as 3rd, failing to score in the Shot Putt]. Major-General William R.E. Murphy distributed the medals and presented the 'J.P. O'Sullivan Cup' to U.C.D. Murphy was the first Irish and the last Chief Commissioner of Dublin Metropolitan Police before its merger with the Garda Siochána in 1925, of which he became the Deputy Commissioner, a post he held until his retirement in 1955. The teams were entertained to a dinner and dance given by the Trinity Club.

A great neck and neck race between Conway and Quinlan. They jumped the last five hurdles together and raced shoulder to shoulder on the run in, but Quinlan slipped and went headlong over the line, but under the tape rather than breasting it. After consult
