NoteThe 10th Colours match saw the track events over metric distances for the first time. Even if the evolution of Irish athletics over the first decade of the Colours matches had stripped away some of the appeal which had surrounded the inaugural match of 1961, the rivalry between the two Colleges was as intense as ever. UCD came to the match having scored an emphatic win in the Intervarsities' Championships. Although event wins were split nine for UCD, including the relay, and seven for Trinity, the difference between the teams was that UCD took maximum points in six individual events and first and third in their other two, while Trinity did not score maximum points in any event. The outstanding performance of the match was John Dillon (TCD) treble win in the 200m, 400m and 400m hurdles, in addition to which he anchored the Trinity 4 x 100m relay. Double wins were scored by Ian Mowat (TCD) in Shot Putt and Discus and by John Dooley (UCD) in the 800m and 1500m, a repeat of his double win in the Intervarsities. After 10 matches, the tally was UCD 7 wins, TCD 2 wins and one match drawn. The Women's match was a tightly contested affair. In six of the nine individual events, the points' split was 6 to 5, with each team scoring maximum points in one event. Barring a disqualification, Trinity had secured a narrow victory before final relay event. Sheena O'Brien scored a double win in Javelin and Discus and a 2nd place in the Shot Putt for UCD. For Trinity Catherine Boyle took a treble win in the 100m, 200m and long jump and a 3rd place in the javelin, while Jane McNicholl scored a 400m and 800m double win and two 2nd places and a 3rd in the throws. Between them Boyle and McNicholl contributed 35 of Trinity's points total.
