Munster beat Ulster to claim the Interprovincial Championship on a thrilling final day at The Island.
After the sides finishing 2-2 in the morning foursomes, the early exchanges in the singles promised a very close finish.
Gary Hurley and Robin Dawson claimed two early singles points to set Munster on their way, but Cormac Sharvin kept the defending champions in touch with a victory of his own at the 16th.
Gary O’Flaherty’s 2/1 win over Irish Close champion John Ross Galbraith was a reversal of the semi-final at that Championship in Seapoint earlier this year, and it proved vital as it left Munster needing only a half from the remaining matches.
That half point was duly delivered by Geoff Lenehan against Colm Campbell.
John Hickey followed that with a two-hole victory over Colin Fairweather, while Stephen Coulter and Pat Murray halved in the final match.
Meanwhile, Leinster pulled away from Connacht in the singles to claim third place - clinching six of the seven afternoon matches having taken a one-point lead from the foursomes.
Meanwhile, in the Boys Interprovincials, Leinster clinching their third title in a row thanks to a 7-3 victory over Munster on the final day.
A clean sweep of the three foursomes matches set them on their way, and victory was secured when Eoin Leonard clinched a win on the final green in his match with Gary Ward.
Ulster beat Connacht in the other match with a powerful singles performance in which they swept the first six matches - David Brady salvaging something for Connacht in the final match.
