ULSTER clinched their third consecutive Interprovincial crown with a 3-12 to 0-17 win over Leinster at Croke Park.

Two goals from Armagh’s Jamie Clarke and another from Monaghan’s Conor McManus coupled with a man of the match display by Tyrone’s Joe McMahon were key to the win for Joe Kernan’s men.

Leinster had led 0-9 to 1-4 at the break but Pat Gilroy’s side could not contend with the Ulster attack in the second period and finished four-point losers.
