O’Neill sped to victory in the 110m hurdles in 14.55 seconds and won the 400m in 51.43 seconds.
Having also won the 1500m race, O’Neill was then second in long jump, shot put and javelin while he was third in both the 100m and pole vault.
O’Neill set five new personal best and recorded three season’s bests in reaching the 6,838 tally.
To win the English title, O’Neill staved off Patrick McLean-Tattan on 5,895 points and William Reid, who tallied 5,855.
