Meets held at Ulster Cricket Club Grounds
6th Jun 1914T&FQUBView1642For the third year in a row University College Galway did not send a team to the inter-university championships, despite the fact that the College had held its own sports day on 14 May, 1914 in College Park, Galway. In addition to the Varsity Championships, there were four events confined to Belfast schoolboys - 100 yards, high jump, 440 yards and long jump. Very good performances were witnessed by an attendance which was described as 'of very meagre proportions', with a couple of hundred ladies and as many men in the enclosure. Although the meeting concluded over an hour behind schedule, it was successfully and professionally conducted. During their stay in Belfast the visiting teams were the guests of Queen's University and were entertained to dinner after the contest. The following day they were motored to Newcastle and Rostrevor on Carlingford Lough for a day's relaxation. Trinity College Dublin won the Intervarsity Championship and the Ladies Cup for the first time, with four wins and 6 second places.
