Sligo Rovers 1 St. Patrick’s Athletic 0
A stoppage time penalty gave FAI Cup finalists Sligo victory to ensure they finished third in the league and confirm Europe, though Shamrock Rovers winning the league ensured that anyway.
Pete Mahon's St. Pat's, who led the league for 16 weeks, longer than any other side, thus finish the season bitterly disappointed as they end up with nothing to show for their efforts.
The only goal of the game came in the first minute of added time at the death.
Gary McCabe won a penalty and defender Alan Keane blasted the spot kick to the roof of the net.
