Shane O'Hanlon was the star man as Louth kicked on in the second half to overcome their hosts in Aughrim.
The sides were tied at 0-6 apiece at half-time, with full-forward O'Hanlon keeping the Wee men in touch.
At the other end some good approach work from Conor Ffrench was being rewarded with scores from Johnny Delahunt and Mikey O'Connor.
A punched goal by O'Hanlon in the 39th minute after a good ball from Tadgh McEneaney was the telling score and a four-point burst between the 51st and 54th minutes shot Louth into a 1-13 to 0-11 lead.
Wicklow finished with another brace from O'Connor but never really looked like getting the goal they needed.
