Cork City dashed Dundalk's hopes of a double as Sean Maguire struck in the final minute of extra-time to clinch a 1-0 victory in the FAI Cup final.

Dundalk were targeting a second straight league and cup double in a repeat of last year's decider at the Aviva Stadium.

Maguire's shot took a defection off Dundalk defender Brian Gartland before hitting the bottom corner.

Dundalk's season continues in the Europa League group stage.

Stephen Kenny's side secured a third successive Premier Division title last month after a 2-1 win over Bohemians.

Dundalk beat Maccabi Tel-Aviv 1-0 in September to become the first Irish team to earn a European group stage victory.
