NoteThe 5th annual Colours Match took place in College Park, Trinity College. The form book had UCD as favourites after their domination in the Intervarsities' championships in Galway eleven days prior to this head-to-head meeting. However, against the odds, Ivor Rees and Steve Austen of Trinity took 1st and 2nd, respectively, in both the 100y and 220y sprints. Iggy ” Muircheartaigh (UCD), who placed 3rd in both sprints, had been looked to by UCD to register important points in these events, having taken the 100y, 220y and 440y treble at the Intervarsities in Galway. He had achieved the same treble at the UCD Championships in early May and in the Colours Match of 1964, and in addition was the reigning NACAI Champion at 100y, 300y and 440y. ” Muircheartaigh was also pushed all the way to the line in the 440y by Dave Clarke of Trinity. Fortified by these successes and contrary to expectations, TCD eclipsed UCD by winning 10 of the sixteen events to level the series score at two contests each with one drawn. Tom Power (UCD) repeated his double from 1964 in the half mile (no dead-heat on this occasion) and 1 mile, and Lionel Hatt (TCD) won both the Shot Putt and Discus. All round the athletic performances were of a high standard. Five Meeting Records were broken and a further two equalled. In addition there was "an avalanche of personal bests" by athletes from both clubs. Liam Gleeson (UCD) broke his fibreglass pole during the pole vault. A replacement cost £50, a considerable sum in those days. The first ever women's match between TCD and UCD had to be curtailed to three events due to the limited availability of UCD athletes. Trinity took the limited honour.
