NoteIn a break with tradition, the 110th College Races hosted the 13th Colours Match. It was also the first Colours Match in College Park over metric distances. The College Races were founded in 1857 - there were two meetings that year and they were not held in 1879, 1880, 1915-1919 and 1921, hence the numbering. The decision to incorporate the Colours Match was taken to make the College Races more entertaining and more of a spectacle, since teams selected to compete against Dublin University had not been able to turn out in full strength over several years because of the afternoon nature of the fixture. It was a gloriously sunny afternoon with ideal track and wind conditions. The 'Races' were attended by President Éamon de Valera, Provost Albert J. McConnell and his wife, Dr Frederick H. Boland (Chancellor of the University, former Irish Ambassador to the Court of St. James and former President of the United Nations General Assembly) and Mr John C.A. Gaskin (Chairman, Trinity Week Committee). The incorporation of the Colours Match into the "Trinity Week" celebrations brought double success for Trinity's Men and Women by substantial margins. The DUHAC men had three double winners - John Dillon in the 400m and 800m, Tim O'Connor in Shot Putt and Discus, and Michael Kennedy in the 400m hurdles and Pole Vault. Dillon's performance brought his total of wins in Colours matches to thirteen. David Tilsley set a match record in the sprint hurdles. Trinity won six of the eight track events (TCD 54 pts v UCD 34pts) and the sprint relay and held parity in the field event with UCD (TCD 32pts v UCD 34pts). The one surprise on the track was the total eclipse of Robert Walker in the 5000m to finish last. Match records were also set in the 100m, shared by Denis O'Connell (UCD) and Brian Doyle (TCD), in the 1500 m by Robert Wormell and in the 4 x 100m relay, shared by both sprint quartets. In the Women's match, double wins were recorded for TCD by Patricia Moran (100m and 200m), Janet Grainger (Long and High Jumps) and Caroline Hunter (Discus and Javelin). Trinity won seven of the nine events, three with maximum points.
