St Patrick's left no doubt about the result of their Wicklow Championship Group game at the second time of asking yesterday.
The game was replayed after dispute over the result of the first match, but yesterday the champions ran out decisive six points winners.
Stephen Duffy was the man of the match for St Pat's while County players Paul Earls at full-forward and John Slattery at corner-forward had a relatively quiet afternoon.
