NoteIrish 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.
