It’s a considerable achievement considering that Ulster schools have dominated the competition in recent years. The team was coached by Christopher Brennan. Lauren Walsh also won the Mary Nowlan Cup, having got the best individual score (32 gross points).

Rockport School Hollywood, Co. Down beat Muckross Park, Dublin, also by a point in the junior final.
