The Russian Egg Roulette, which asks contenders to smash eggs against their forehead, was won by the Irish team.
The static relay prize went to a team comprising dutch and English members. The teams were required to throw and catch eggs along a 100- metre course.
Andy Dunlop, world president of the World Egg Throwing Federation, said: "During a blistering hot day that played havoc with egg stability, a larger-than- ever crowd gathered to watch not only international players, but also the first Star Wars-themed battle."
"Thanks to all those that took part."
