Scorers: Terenure College: Try: Shane Cullen; Pen: David McAllister
Dungannon: Tries: Neville Magee, Paul Magee 2; Cons: John McGuckin 2; Pen: Richard McCarter
Terenure, already facing the drop, put in a brave effort in the first half but they were 10-3 behind at half-time.
Dungannon, eager to put together back-to-back league wins, nudged into the lead on 15 minutes when second row Neville Magee scored a try converted by John McGuckin.
In windy conditions, good work from scrum half Mel Ferry, which included a break from near his own try-line and a clever kick to the corner, laid the foundations for the opening try.
After a number of phases for the Dungannon forwards, Magee spotted a gap and got over from close range.
David McAllister, the former Leinster out-half, kicked a penalty in reply for 'Nure, but Dungannon's Richard McCarter eclipsed him.
25 minutes in, McCarter landed a terrific penalty kick from the halfway line to re-establish the Tyrone men's seven-point lead.
The 'Nure defence was badly stretched, a quarter-of-an-hour into the second half, and Paul Magee crossed in the corner. McGuckin's conversion attempt bounced back off the post, leaving it 15-3.
The home side conjured up a try, scored by Shane Cullen, to close the gap back to seven points.
Nonetheless, Dungannon proved they were the stronger outfit when crossing for their third try in injury-time.
Second row Michael Rainey made an impressive burst forward and after a quick recycle and movement between the backs, Magee scored to the left of the posts. McGuckin's successful conversion was the final scoring act.
