Tubbercurry 3-12
St Mary's 0-12

Second-half goals from substitute Cian Killoran (2) and Brian Morahan proved to be the difference as Tubbercurry celebrated a first Sligo SFC success in 23 years at Markievicz Park.

Last year's defeated finalists fell 0-2 to 0-5 in arrears early on but fought back to go in at the break with a 0-6 to 0-5 lead.

County star David Kelly's finger prints were all over Tubbercurry's best moments and they hit two goals in as many minutes at the start of the second-half.

St Mary's cause wasn't helped by black cards for defenders Jonathan Lynch and Caolan O'Grady.

Killoran raised a second green flag to add gloss to Tubbercurry's victory.
