Siobhan (handicap 8) and Lorraine (handicap 23) scored 41 Stableford net points. They gained 19pt before the turn and 22pt in a sparkling inward half. They had a gross score of 84 strokes.
That second nine holes won it for Behan and Walsh as they were trailing Hayston's Susan Thom (handicap 18) and Joyce
Woollon (19), and Moor Hall's Julie Burton (6)  and Claire Howells (6) after nine holes, both pairs having 20pts to their credit at the turn.
Scots Thom and Woollon finished second with 40pt (20-20) and Burton and Howells third with 39pt (20-19).
The winners receive a place in next year's Ricoh Women's British Open pro-am at Royal Lytham and St Annes Golf Club.
The 16 pairs who contested the grand final had come through local and regional finals to play over a par-73 Eden Course of 5,450yd.
