For women's defending champ Iffland the victory was expected but Popovici, taking part in his first full season on the tour, was a surprise winner on the men's side with his narrow defeat of 7-time series champ Gary Hunt.

The Irish stop on the tour took place in the picturesque Dun Laoghaire harbor in Dublin but with a water temperature below 12 degrees Celsius the results will not count toward the Cliff Diving World Series overall standings.
