De La Salle Waterford completed a memorable double by winning the Irish Schools Junior Championship at Lucan.

Twenty-four hours after the Senior team beat Blackrock College to claim the Irish title, the Juniors romped to a five-shot win with Fauthlegg's David Mahon one of the heroes of the hour with a fine 77.

Playing off 11, Mahon's nett score of 66 combined with Alex Browne's 73 for a winning total of three under par 139.

Browne (Waterford Castle), playing off 14, was the second score to count for De La Salle with Rory Milne's (Faithlegg) 75 discarded. 

Coleraine Grammar finished second on 144 while St Michael's, Dublin were third on 148 and St Colman's, Claremorris in fourth place.
