The Galway underdogs led twice through Etanda Nkololo and Victor Collins.

But Premier Division Derry pulled level with a James McClean finish and an Emmett Friars header.

Derry went ahead for the first time when McBride scored from McGlynn's corner and then David McDaid played McGlynn in to net the fourth.
