NoteThis Colours Match was to have taken place in College Park on Wednesday 14 May had to be postponed because the track was in parts under water due to torrential rain. A new venue was found the following evening at Santry. UCD retained the Dawson Trophy in the Men's match for the 4th successive year. It was "an always interesting match", with a high standard of athletics and some really exciting close finishes in the 100y, 220y, 880 y and the 1 mile. Trinity won six events against UCD's 10 events, taking six of the nine track events. The contest started very positively for Trinity with 18-year-old John Dillon beating the experienced Intervarsities champion SeŠn ” Muircheartaigh in the 440y hurdles in a match record time. It was only his second ever race over the distance. He later completed a double win in the 220y, giving notice of his emerging talent as one of Trinity's best ever sprinters and hurdlers. The other meeting record was in the Shot Putt in which Ian Mowat bettered the previous best by over a foot. The 4 x 110y relay provided a thrilling climax to the match with Ben Underwood of Trinity and John McStay of UCD breaking the tape together, the official verdict being a dead heat. The results of the women's match did not appear in the newspapers. However, reports of the match in 1970 accorded a win to Trinity's women in 1969.
