Playing off 22 he went out in 22pts thanks to a four-point par at the seventh and three-point returns at the first and third. Down the back he shot 21pts as had a four-point birdie at the 13th and three-point pars at the 12, 17th and 18th.

That gave him a total of 43pts which was enough to take the overall honours by one point from Eoin Hamill (30) with Barry Grennan (13) a point further back in third.

Divisional honours went to Michael Coburn (10), Fearghal Duffy (15) and Conor Byrne (21) while Caolan Rafferty warmed up for the West of Ireland, where he duly finished in the top 16, by posting 36pts  for the best gross score.
