Both sides traded points in the opening two minutes. A Dan Redmond brace of pointed frees were recorded before Evan McGuinness knocked over a powerful point to cut the deficit to the minimum.

Another Dan Redmond point followed before the first half waterbreak was signaled as Tomacork led by 0-4 to 0-2 at the break. Christy Connors fired over an outrageous point before a brace of points followed from placed balls by Willie Cash, as it turned into a shoot-out between the freetakers.

Richard Greene replied with a pair of white flags before Willie Cash pointed from an acute angle just before the half-time whistle sounded, as it was six points apiece in a right battle.

It was the same story throughout the third quarter, both freetakers traded points before the Carnew goalie Billy Molloy bombed over a beast of a score from 70m out from yet another placed ball.

Again, Willie Cash replied with a brace of points before the second waterbreak was signaled, still no separating the sides, as it was 0-9 apiece.

Dan Redmond pointed on the restart. Each side traded chances but could not add to their tally.

Tomacork burst into life in the final six minutes, plundering a brace of green flags, a Daniel Redmond piledriver shook the Gaels net and this was soon followed by another, after Richard Greene pucked a long ball into the danger zone, that caught everyone off-guard and sailed into the net, a massive six pointer, in the space of two minutes to lay the foundation for the victory.

Tomacork closed out the game with another brace of points before the full-time whistle sounded.

Pat Dunne presented Larry Kinsella with the Wicklow People Man of the Match trophy before presenting the winning captain, Dan Redmond, with the trophy.
