It was a double success for Maynooth University at the Irish Intervarsity Championship as Caolan Rafferty captured the men's title while Ciara Casey took the ladies crown.
 
Rafferty had one shot to spare on three over following a final round 75. Playing partner Eugene Smith, also Maynooth, tied for second alongside UCC's Ben Murray. Harry Gillivan (Maynooth University) posted the low round of the week, a superb 68 (-5) to claim fourth.
 
Ciara Casey made three birdies on the back nine to clinch victory in the ladies event. Her final round 73 was good enough for a one-shot win with Eleanor Metcalfe (Maynooth University) finishing runner-up. Overnight leader Shannon Burke (Ulster University) slipped back and had to settle for a share of third place alongside Molly Dowling (Maynooth University) and Mary Doyle (Maynooth University).
