Antrim gained revenge for last year's Tommy Murphy Cup final defeat by Wicklow by winning Saturday's big decider at Croke Park.

The Wicklow men netted very early in the game but the Ulster side struck back with goals from skipper Kevin Brady, Thomas McCann and Ciaran Close.

Antrim were on top at the break taking a 3-6 to 1-9 half-time advantage.

The game remained close right to the end, but the Saffrons stayed ahead to claim a deserved three-point success.
