The sides were level six times in the opening half before Tipp star Noel McGrath edged UCD a point clear at half-time, 0-8 to 0-7.

Gary Guilfoyle restored parity early in the second half but goals from Kilkenny's Michael Brennan and Guiney, who notched 1-3, all from play, ensured a routine success for UCD.

The Belfield boys haven't won the Fitzgibbon Cup since 2001, and last contested a final in 2006, but that long wait could be about to end for the 30-times winners.
