On a nail biting final day at Slieve Russell the Leinster girls got off to a good start, winning two of the foursomes. Georgia Carr added the only win of the singles for the Leinster side but two halved matches from Lauren Walsh and Ellen O’Gorman sealed the deal. Leinster are crowned 2016 Girls’ Interprovincial Champions.
Meanwhile Munster dominated Connacht in the girls as they won all nine  matches and finished in  second place behind Leinster.
The Ulster ladies came out fighting this morning and they took three foursomes matches from Leinster but this afternoon was a different affair. Leinster recorded early wins from Meadhbh Doyle, Ciara Casey and Aedin Murphy. Lisa Maguire staged a comeback for the defending champions against Rachel Taylor and won her match on the home green. It all came down to Mary Doyle and Niamh Ward’s match which was halved, resulting in an overall win for the Ulster side. Ulster are crowned 2016 Ladies Interprovincial Champions for the 2nd consecutive year.
Connacht again came out fighting on the final day against Munster and despite trailing 3-0 after the foursomes, they won 4 from 5 points in the singles. It was a 4-4 result between the two sides, meaning Connacht finished in 3rd position.
