TROY PARROTT'S hat-trick inspired O'Connell School to an incredible All-Ireland First Year Boys 'B' Cup final turnaround in Tullamore.

With the Dubin city-centre school trailing Galway side Seamount College 2-0 heading into the final 10 minutes of yesterday's clash at Leah Victoria Park, Parrott made his mark.

Matching his recent Leinster final brace to send the contest into extra-time, Parrott capped an incredible solo display - and personal season - by deciding the final with an extra-time winner.

Goals from Joey Droney and Danny Travis had looked to have given the Connacht's champions from Kinvara the vital edge until Parrott stole the show.

Meanwhile, St Benildus College, will also be in All-Ireland final action next Wednesday, facing Ulster champions St Eunan's College in the First Year Cup showpiece in Gortakeegan (1.0). Benildus followed up their provincial final success with an emphatic All-Ireland semi-final victory last week, beating Crescent College Comprehensive from Limerick 4-0 thanks to goal from Jamie Burke, Harry McEvoy, Shane Flynn and Sean Monahan.

On Tuesday, Leinster Minor Cup champions Colasite Phádraig CBS booked their place in the Dublin Metropolitan League final thanks to a penalty-shootout victory over Clonkeen College.

Despite goals from Liam Kane, Yasser Mahrouk and Cian McGrane in normal time, the semi-final tie needed penalties to separate the sides and Liam Corponi struck the winning effort.

O'CONNELL SCHOOL: Denis Robo; Jamie Murphy, Sebastian Corcoran, David Oprea, Jordan Boylan, Lloyd Lawless, Scott Shannon, Troy Parrott, Leon Wheelock, Edward Iacob (Scott Coughlan 35), Evan Crosby (Corey Cummins 45).

SEAMOUNT COLLEGE: Jack Burke; Tom Brennan, Donal Mulligan, Daire Murphy, Eoghan Hanley, Michael Corless (Donal Keely 50), Conail Larristy, Ruairi McSweeney, Barry Britton, Joey Droney, Danny Travis (Dean Ivors 50).
