The Lilywhites have finished another successful campaign with goals from Dane Massey, Daniel Kelly, a Brendan Clarke own goal and Georgie Kelly. The result, combined with Derry's dominant victory, means that St. Pat's will miss out on European football next season. Elsewhere, Bohs have defeated Sligo Rovers 2-1 at Dalymount Park to cap off an excellent season. Derek Pender - playing his final game for the club - has netted the winner from the penalty spot to sign off in style. Daryl Fordyce had given the Bit O' Red the lead, before Daniel Mandroiu drew the hosts level just before the hour mark.
