Denny Sinnott and Fiona Fitzgerald produced a memorable fightback as Waterford Castle beat 2009 champions Castlecomer 3-2 to claim the Irish Mixed Foursomes title at Warrenpoint.
Sinnott and Fitzgerald, who won the clutch match in the semi final, found themselveds two holes down after seven holes, but wins at the 8th, 9th and 10th saw the Munster pair take a one hole lead early in the back nine.

Their control on the match was tightened when they went 2up on the 15th and when Fiona Fitzgerald holed a tricky six-foot putt on the 16th green, the green pennant and Spanish Tourist Board sponsored Irish Mixed Foursomes trophy was heading to the south-east.
