Carlow's John Rossiter got the better of Kilalla man Martin Cronin on a 21-12,21-12 scoreline in the DMAS decider.
Success though for George Miller in his GMBS final against Stephen Murphy from Wexford, winning Gold 21-20,21-17.
Ballaghadereen men Joe McCann and Dessie Keegan booked their place in the Senior Open Doubles final with a win over Eoin Kennedy and Carl Browne. 15-21,21-16,21-8. That sets up a repeat of last years final, with Tom Sheridan and Brian Carroll booking the other Final spot today also.
It's All Ireland Singles Finals Weekend and Mayo will have 3 players looking for Gold. All three are in action on Saturday 20th. In Lahorna, Co. Tipperary, Killala man Martin Cronin will face his old foe John Rossiter from Cavan in the Diamond Masters A decider.
