Glenavon are cup winners again and David Healy must wait for his first trophy as manager of Linfield. Here is Richard Petrie's full match report. Thank you very much for following the action
- Glenavon win 2-0 - Braniff (45), Hall (48)
- David Healy denied first trophy as a manager
- Seventh time Glenavon have won the cup
Player-boss Hamilton hands his medal to Declan 'Fabio' O'Brien, the forward left out of the Glenavon matchday squad.
Hamilton is the first Glenavon manager to win the Irish Cup twice.
Celebration time for Glenavon. They deserved the victory and Linfield will be disappointed with their showing. Stephen Baxter says: "Linfield started like a house on fire and had chances. "But once Glenavon weathered that, they grew and ending up bossing the game."
Our players were all excellent and will go down in the club's history. We did it for Mark Farren and hopefully he is looking down on us.
There was no better time for me to score. We were a bit sloppy in the first 15 minutes but after that we controlled the game. They did not have many clear chances and we managed to take ours. It is a pleasure to play in this team.
That's it. Glenavon beat Linfield 2-0 to lift the Irish Cup for the seventh time in their history, and for the second time in three seasons under player-manager Gary Hamilton.

Linfield's Stephen Lowry competes against Andy Kilmartin of Glenavon at Windsor Park
Andy Hall scores to put Glenavon 2-0 up. The ball fell to him on the penalty spot and after one touch, he shoots left-footed. Linfield defender Matthew Clarke tried to block and it may well have come off him. Definitely a Hall goal and Linfield are in big trouble.
Kevin Braniff scores for Glenavon

Glenavon's Eoin Bradley forces the ball over the line, following up after a save by Gareth Deane. But referee Raymond Hetherington rules it out for a foul by Ciaran Martyn. Looked like the correct decision, but Glenavon clearly don't see it that way!
