Clontarf's title winning season was capped at the Ulster Bank League awards last night as the champions picked up three of the 14 gongs, which were presented by Joe Schmidt at the Aviva Stadium.

Andy Wood was named Head Coach of the Year, while Leinster Academy out-half Joey Carbery picked up the Rising Star award.

For the third time in four years, 'Tarf winger Mick McGrath finished as the division's top try scorer having taken his tally to 15 with a touchdown in the final.

Meanwhile, Cork Con second-row Conor Kindregan was crowned Division 1A Player of the Year for his fine season that saw his side win the Bateman Cup and Munster Senior Cup.

Elsewhere, Angus Lloyd (Trinity), Charlie O'Regan (UCC), Paddy O'Toole (Highfield) and Brendan Guilfoyle (Old Crescent) were named as Player of the Year in their respective divisions.
