NoteIt was doom and gloom for TCD's men. "Darkness had descended on Belfield when the concluding event - the high jump, was decided in the eighth annual UCD v Dublin University contest. The result - a first and second for Trinity, only helped to reduce National's [UCD's] margin of victory. It was decisive - 113 to Trinity's 58 - and their easiest win in the series" [Irish Times, 2 May, 1968]. UCD placed 1st and 2nd in five of the eight track events and in four of the seven field events. Trinity scored only two maximum points in High Jump and Javelin. Percy Hecksher set a meeting record in the Pole Vault and Eamonn O'Keeffe, a UCD College Record in the quarter mile. For UCD Joe Cummiskey took sprint double wins in the 100y and 220y, O'Keeffe double wins in the 440y and half mile, and Larry Cheevers double wins in the Shot Putt and Discus. Seán Ó Muircheartaigh scored a treble win in the 120y and 440y hurdles and triple jump. Although the women's contest was more keenly fought affair, UCD's women, like their male counterparts, took the honours. UCD scored 7 wins to Trinity's four and scored maximum points in four events against Trinity's two.
