Úna Jackman smashed in a goal in the fourth minute of injury-time to snatch glory for Gailltír.

It was sweet redemption for the Waterford side after losing last year's decider by a point to Clonduff and it looked as if they would miss out this time too as St Rynagh's turned a three-point interval deficit into a one-point advantage before the three-quarter mark, and led by two with seconds remaining. There was one last chance, as Trish Jackman sent a free into the danger zone.

Heroically, Shauna Fitzgerald somehow made a clean catch amid a slew of bodies. Surrounded, though, the midfielder managed to find a pass to the No 22.

Though a point would have levelled Jackman Jnr dispatched the sliotar to the roof of the Rynagh's net.

Just to make sure, her sister planted a free from the restart and the final whistle followed. Delirium for Gailltír but devastation for Rynagh's, who trailed by 0-7 to 0-4 at the break and had the player of the match in Siobhán Flannery.

SCORERS - Gailltír: Annie Fitzgerald 0-4 (4f); Ú Jackman 1-0; Aoife Fitzgerald, A Lyng, C O'Sullivan 0-2 each; A Corcoran, S Fitzgerald, T Jackman (f) 0-1 each. St Rynagh's: S Flannery 0-7 (6f, 1 '45); K Kenny 0-4; L Sullivan, G Dolan 0-1 each.
