DCU were winners on the double yesterday evening.

DCU completed a special double success in the Higher Education Ladies Division 1 and Division 6 League Final. 

The top tier decider was contested with UL in Stradbally in very difficult conditions and it was the Dublin side who adapted best on the evening. 

With Emma Lawlor, Rebecca Reddin, Kate Kenny and Roisin Ennis in their ranks, the team led by Portlaoise ladies boss Stephen Duff capitalised on having the favourable breeze in the second half to run out 2-11 to 1-7 winners at the close of play. 

It had been 1-7 to 1-3 at the interval with Laois forward Erone Fitzpatrick featuring for the Munster side. 

In the Division 5 decider there was Offaly representation on the winners Marino Institute panel through Tullamore's Aideen Harte. 

Harte defeated her fellow faithful woman Niamh Glackin, who was captaining the Maynooth University side. 

That game finished 9-13 to 1-11.
