Forrest Little and Maynooth University talent Jack McDonnell was declared the winner of the weather-shortened Munster Youths Amateur Open.

The 47 golfers who made the cut played for an hour or so before torrential rain flooded the greens at Monkstown Golf Club.

Play was abandoned and 36-hole leader McDonnell declared the winner on three under 139 after rounds of 66 and 73.
