Shannon went in front after nine minutes when out-half Tadhg Bennett made a fine break and timed his pass perfectly to winger Richie Mullane who skipped out of a challenge to touch down.
Second row Darragh Frawley kicked a penalty for UL Bohemians near the midpoint of the first half, but this was negatived three minutes later when Bennett landed the first of his three penalties.
It was Frawley's turn again after 24 minutes and while he missed an opportunity to put his side in front on the half hour mark, he compensated with a successful kick after 33 minutes.
But on the stroke of half-time, UL Bohs tried to work the ball out from behind heir own line. Their efforts were foiled and when Shannon turned over possession, their pack initially failed to find their way over.
