Missing their 2012 Dublin minors in Shane McGrath and Kevin O'Flynn, Malahide CS also went into this game without key players from the St Sylvester's Club, who have a big minor 'A' final later this month.

Dundalk's scorer-in-chief was Daniel McKeown and he was certainly the big thorn in Malahide's side in the first half.

His predatory instincts saw him register 3-3 in that opening half, the first of these coming on 10 minutes when picked out by a Ciaran Sheridan free.

McKeown added his second after a good run from corner-forward Ross Keogh on 18 minutes and then completed his hat-trick on 24 minutes.

Dundalk led 3-9 to 0-1 at the break and dominated the final quarter with subs Tadhg McEneaney and Adam Lynch both registering scores.

Scorers – Dundalk Colleges: D McKeown 3-3, K McDonnell (2f), D Maguire, J Arrowsmith, R Curran, R Kehoe 0-2 each, C Sheridan (1 '45), T McEnearney (1f), A Lynch, 0-1 each. Malahide: D McEvoy 1-1, (1-0 pen), D Walsh 0-1.
