Out-half Cian Doddy, who also landed two conversions, got the scoring under way with a 22nd-minute penalty.

From the restart, Roscrea moved the ball towards the Castleknock line, but once it was turned over Luke Reilly led a devastating breakaway that went the entire length of the pitch and ended with O'Shea going over.

Ryan Merrells scored the second try before the break and O'Shea pounced again three minutes after the restart to seal victory.
