Kevin McGrath had a chance to equalise in the 61st minute but Gavin Cullen pulled off a fantastic save.

That proved to be a crucial moment as Laurence Toland scored Cockhill’s second moments later.

Mark Moran missed a penalty for Cockhill, but it mattered little as the Charlie O’Donnell Sports Ground outfit got their hands on the silverware once again.
