NoteThe match took place in near-perfect conditions. Trinity's men took the Colours trophy by a margin of 19 pts, winning the track events by 48pts to UCD's 40 pts and the field events narrowly by 39pts to UCD 37pts. However, with the final two events to be decided in the match, the result could have gone either way, but maximum points in the Pole Vault and success in the Shot Putt pushed TCD to victory. It was Trinity's first back to back Colours win since the win/draw of 1961/1962. Double event wins were achieved by Declan Drislane in the 100m and 200m for TCD and by Joe Carey in the Long and Triple Jumps for UCD. One of the highlights of the match the performance of John Bolger in the 5000m in cutting some seven seconds off the match record. The Women's match turned in UCD's favour in the field events. Having held their own in the track events by 34pts to UCD 32pts, Trinity lost the five field events by 15 pts - TCD 20 pts v. UCD 35pts. UCD took maximum points in three field events and won four against Trinity's single Javelin win. Although TCD won the 4 x 100m relay, it was too little too late to save the day. Lucy Moore of UCD recorded a double in the Long and High Jumps, with a match record in the former, while Siobhan Lonergan of TCD had dual success in winning the 800m and 1500m, equalling the match record for the shorter distance.
