NoteIn the first meeting to be held at Belfield, UCD took the 4th Colours Match in commanding style by the most decisive margin of 29 points since the inaugural contest. The evening's conditions were ideal for the match. The superiority of UCD on the track was the key to the team's success with seven out of nine events. After the first seven events UCD were leading by 50 pts to 26 pts and the result of the match was never in doubt. Trinity supplied the individual winner in only the Shot Putt, 440y hurdles, 3 miles and 880y, the latter a dead-heat for first place and only took the first two places in one event, the 3 miles. The half-mile produced the most dramatic finish of the contest, with Tom Power (UCD) making up a 5-yard deficit to catch Anthony Shillington (TCD) in the last few strides for a dead-heat on the line. Two match records were set in Pole Vault and Long Jump. UCD Captain Iggy ” Muircheartaigh took a unique treble in the 100y, 220y and 440y and anchored the UCD quartet to a win in the 4 x 110y relay.
