The Ulster champions saw off Shannon by six holes in the semi-final, thanks largely to Andrew Moore and Luke Dunlop’s domineering performance in beating David O’Brien and Conor Ferns by eight holes.

Kilkenny beat Ballinrobe in a close-fought semi-final, the only difference between the sides coming in the first match where Brian Crowdle and Kevin Power beat James Connolly and Darragh Jennings by three holes.

Bangor took an early lead in the final and never looked back, with the top match doing the damage for them this time in Max Thallon and Ryan Young, who were five-hole winners over Crowdle and Power.
