Seamus O’Carroll’s goal on the half-hour mark saw Castleknock head in at the break with a commanding 1-10 to 0-6 lead.

O’Carroll and Mossie Quinn kept the points coming after the turnaround for the would-be winners, as the led by as many as 12 points come the second water break, prior to St Vincent’s grabbing a consolation goal as it finished 1-18 to 1-12.

The result sets up a play-off between Castleknock and Ballinteer to see which team will join Crokes in the quarter-finals.
