NoteThis was the inaugural Colours Match on the tartan track at Belfield which had been officially opened in June 1977. Trinity were attempting to pull off three wins in a row. That hope was dashed by UCD's domination of the track events which was pivotal to its win. Eight wins in the eight events, four with maximum points, plus the 4 x 100m gave UCD a 64pts advantage against TCD's 31pts. Trinity won five of the seven field events, two with maximum points, to take some solace out of the match with 43pts to UCD's 34pts. Double wins were achieved by Paul Duffy of UCD (100m and 400m) and by John Fortune of UCD (110m and 400m hurdles).
