Tries from scrum half Robert Shanley and flankers Rajan Reilly and Patrick Mallon helped Michael’s win through to their first Senior Cup decider since 1991, and third in all. Winger Noel Reid kicked all three conversions for the winners. Mary’s points came from a Killian Finlay drop goal and a penalty from Neil Cowhey.
