NoteThe Colours Matches formed part of College Races. The outcome was a double match win for Trinity. The TCD women won well but the men's contest went right down to the last event on the programme - the 5000m. The points tally see-sawed throughout the men's contest. With four events remaining, a UCD victory seemed on the cards with the scores at UCD 66 pts v. TCD 55 pts. However, TCD clawed their way back into contention, helped by a 'No Height' by Frank Sweeney (UCD), the favourite in the High Jump, and a dropped baton in the relay by the UCD quartet. With one event remaining, the points tally stood 82 - 78 in Trinity's favour. A dramatic finale to the athletics programme was in prospect. A UCD clean sweep in the 5000m would seal the match 86 - 85 in their favour. Representing UCD, Ronan Murtagh had won the Intervarsities 10,000m and the Bronze medal in the 5000m that year and Eamonn McMahon was double Intervarsities Cross-Country Champion in 1976 and 1978 and 3000m steeplechase champion in 1979 and double Bronze medallist in the steeplechase 1976 and 1978. Representing TCD, Kingston Mills had won the Intervarsities 5000m and the Silver medal in the 3000m steeplechase, while Paul Dunne was the reigning Intervarsities Cross-Country Champion and 1500m Silver medallist. From the gun Murtagh took out the pace, but was a surprising spent force after four laps, when his team-mate McMahon raced to the front. With two laps remaining Kingston Mills stepped up the pace and stormed to the finish 7.5 seconds ahead of McMahon. Dunne took 3rd place for TCD to seal the match. In the match analysis UCD took the track events, excluding the relay, by 51 pts to 37 pts, while TCD took the field events by 47 pts to 29 pts. The only double win was that of Arthur Devine of UCD (100m and 200m). In the Women's event there was a treble of wins for Lucy Moore of UCD in 100m Hurdles, High Jump and Javelin and double wins for TCD's Siobhan Conroy (Shot Putt and Discus) and Catherine Llewellyn (400m and 800m).
