The All-Ireland senior Wall Ball (One Wall ) Champion had it all to do in Melbourne. First he survived a tie-break against Sydney's Dylan King in the quarters before clawing back a 17-20 deficit in the semi-final to win 21-20, 21-4, and book his place in the final. Here he faced New York's Ed Dotsenko which the Galway and Moycullen man won 21-17, 21-8.
The win comes following his All-Ireland Nationals Wall Ball Open Title victory in July - a first win in 76 years since another Tribesmen Michael Walsh won a national senior singles title. Mulkerrins, who is working in New Zealand travelled to Melbourne to play in the Australian Open.
