AOIBHINN BYRNE was the star of the show with two late baskets as Holy Faith Clontarf retained the All-Ireland U-19 'A' title by beating Christ The King Cork 36-35 in a dramatic final.

Christ The King's Laura Wyse opening the scoring and they led 7-6 at the end of the first quarter, but Holy Faith came back thanks to Saoirse Power's three-pointer and eventually led by four at half-time. They built on that lead and extended their lead to nine thanks to MVP Eleanor Matthews.

But Christ the King came back, only to be denied by Byrne, who popped up for those two massive baskets.

There was more drama, however, and a wild sequence ended with a Hannah McCarthy three-pointer that left just a point between the teams with 30 seconds left.

Christ the King's final effort came up just short, however, when a last-second shot by Wyse rattled in then out.
