The Ulster star, who was three strokes behind Galway's Ronan Mullarney at halfway, fired a 72 in the morning to take the lead and closed with a 77 to win by two strokes on 10 over par 298 from Mullarney and Blainroe's Colin Woodroofe.

Winner of the Irish Boys title when it was a closed event at Ardee in 2011, Hood joins Philip Walton, Paul McGinley (twice), Pádraig Harrington and Graeme McDowell on the roll of honour.
