Both sides had finished level with 35 points from 22 matches when the regular season was finished, and as goal difference was not used at the time to settle the League of Ireland championship, a once off match was needed to decide the destination of the title and the League's place in the 1962–63 European Cup.
Ben Hannigan scored the only goal of the game.
Shelbourne 1-0 Cork Celtic
Cork Celtic line-up:Kevin Blount; S O'Keeffe, Pat O'Mahony; Ray Cowhie, Johnny Coughlan, Mick Millington; Paul O'Donovan, Austin Noonan, Donal Leahy, Frank McCarthy, Donal O'Leary
