Raharney are Westmeath senior hurling kingpins for the 13th time after defeating holders Clonkill by 2-18 to 1-13 in Mullingar today.
Wind advantage was instrumental as the winners overturned an eight point half-time deficit to get their hands on the Examiner Cup.
Goals from Joey Boyle and James Goonery were the highlights of a magnificent second-half comeback.
Niall Mitchell's 19th minute goal had helped establish a 1-7 to 0-2 interval lead for the defending champions but they wilted when Raharney applied the pressure after the restart.
