St Patrick's Athletic have won the EA Sports Cup after a 4-1 victory over Limerick at Markets Field.

Lee Lynch opened the scoring for Limerick after 17 minutes.

But Pats fought back in style, although the goals all came in the second half.

Christy Fagan equalised on 65 minutes.

Conan Byrne then put the Dublin side in front with six minutes to go and late goals in the final two minutes from Jamie McGrath and Graham Kelly putting icing on the cake.
