Tralee defeated Queen's University 48-0 in the Women's All-Ireland Shield final, with Ciara Griffin and Marie Keating scoring two tries apiece during the runaway victory.
Niamh Dempsey notched the Kerry club's opening try after five minutes and Ciara O'Connor converted their second from Griffin on the half hour.
The Belfast girls had some promising passages of play, but the powerful Tralee team took a 17-0 lead into the break after replacement Keating touched down on the stroke of half-time.
Keating came on for the injured Catherine Doolan after 20 minutes, slotting in at centre with Laura O'Mahony moving to scrum half.
The second half was just five minutes old when Ireland flanker Siobhan Fleming added Tralee's fourth try.
The victors scored four more before the 80-minute mark with captain Riona Kennedy and Ayesha Roche both crossing the whitewash and Griffin and Keating completing their braces.
O'Connor converted the last three tries to confirm the 48-point winning margin, but it was a gallant effort from Queen's who face a Division 2 North title decider against Cooke next Sunday.
In the All-Ireland Plate final in Tullamore, Ballincollig overcame Leinster's lone representatives Cill Dara 10-7 in a very tight tussle.
Inspirational captain Ger Gallahue bagged Ballincollig's try and Lizzie Kelly kicked a conversion and a penalty to bring the plate back to Tanner Park for the first time since 2006.
All the scores were in the first half with out-half Aine Donnelly converting her own try for the Kildare side, who were left to rue some missed opportunities in the end.
Notably, Sunday's three All-Ireland finals in Tullamore were all refereed by women, with a Tralee official remarking that retired Ireland number 8 Joy Neville, who was part of last year's Grand Slam-winning team, did a 'superb job' as referee of the Shield game.
