Defending champions Royal Portrush won their 26th Irish Senior Cup title with a 3½-1½ victory over Kilkenny in this morning’s final at Portumna Golf Club.
In the top match, Mary Dowling birdied the 17th to tie the match but Lucy Simpson replied by finding the green at the short 18th and when Mary failed to get up and down, Royal Portrush edged ahead in the tie.
Victoria Bradshaw doubled their advantage defeating Eileen Rose Power on the 17th.
Orla Dunphy pulled a match back for The Cats with an-up-and-down par for a final hole victory over Helen Jones.
But Hannah Henderson proved to be the heroine for the Ulster side when she, on her Senior Cup debut, closed out her tie with Ann Smee on the 17th.
