STEPHEN Kenny hailed his Dundalk players after they came up with the win needed on the last day of the season to deliver the club's first league title in 19 years.

Having narrowly avoided relegation at the end of the 2012 season, Dundalk will be in the Champions League in 2015, a 2-0 win over Cork City at Oriel Park last night thanks to goals from Stephen O'Donnell and Brian Gartland giving them the title at the expense of Cork, who had been league leaders before the game.

"They are a great group of players, very dedicated and very professional and this is a great tribute to them," said Kenny, having landed the second league title of his managerial career.
