However, a ninth wicket stand of 41 between Yasir Cheema and Donal Lynch saw Terenure drag themselves back into the game, needing 19 off the final three overs.
In came Cameron Shoebridge who settled any Malahide nerves by catching and bowling Lynch to leave his side on the brink of victory. That victory duly arrived in the 37th over as Shoebridge trapped Cheema lbw to confirm National Cup honours for Malahide. MALAHIDE: Danny O’shea, Alan Reynolds, Sean Davey, Fintan Mcallister, Callum Riches, Peter Chase, David O’halloran, Samuel De Klerk, Keith Reynolds, Cameron Shoebridge.
