PJ O'Mullan enjoyed his first competitive win as Antrim senior hurling manager in today's Walsh Cup encounter against UCD.

Having already lost to Laois and Dublin, it was a case of third time lucky for O'Mullan who watched his side run out 1-20 to 1-12 winners at The Dub.

The Saffrons turned around for the second-half with a 0-9 to 0-6 advantage and Ciaran Clarke applied the gloss to their victory with a 67th minute goal.
