Banbridge's Jim Carvill came from five shots off the lead to finish with a birdie and win the Leinster Over-30s Amateur Open by a shot at Carlow.

Overnight leaders Pat Murray (79) and Alan Dowling (75) struggled in the final round and Carvill's one-under 69 was enough for the tightest of wins over Dowling and Eoin Arthurs, who signed off with a 66.

Portmarnock and Carlow's John Greene, who was just two shots off the lead starting the day, had to withdraw with a painful recurrence of a back injury on the sixth tee.

Former professional Carvill (50), has had a successful amateur career since he was reinstated, winning the East and South of Ireland titles in 2005.
