NoteThe Match in 1974 was marked by the disappearance of the Delaney-sculpted Colours Match Trophy which had been presented to TCD in College Park in May 1973. The suggestion as that it had disappeared as a result of a College prank and then been forgotten about. One craic commented that the match was being held in memory of the trophy! However the absence of the Men's trophy did not dent the rivalry between UCD and TCD. Trinity and UCD had both finished well behind Queen's in the Intervarsities at Belfield. As had happened in past contests, the outcome went right down to the wire! Trinity won the track disciplines by five events to UCD's three and took 51pts v. 37pts for UCD. John Dillon took after double in the 400m and 800m to bring his tally of wins in the Colours series to 15 events. UCD's 'secret' weapon was Brendan Curtin, a decathlete, who won an amazing six events – 110m hurdles, Shot Putt, Discus, Javelin, Long Jump, and Triple Jump. The only field event won by Trinity was the High Jump by Ian Travers with the then 3rd highest jump in Irish athletic history - 1.97 m. With two events remaining to be decided the match was finely balanced with Trinity in the lead by a single point. Trinity won the 4 x 100m relay to increase the lead to 4pts. Only the triple jump remained. Brendan Curtin aided by John Kearney took maximum points, resulting in a match win for UCD by one point. The final tally in the field events was UCD 47 pts v. Trinity 29pts. The TCD Women took a narrow win by 3 pts. The eleven events were split 6 to 5 in Trinity's favour, including the relay, each team taking maximum points in two events each. With only the relay remaining, each team had 55pts. The honours went to Trinity in a closely contested race.
