Before the game, the departing Cork boss received two presentations, from the Derry City club and the Northside Derry City Supporters Club, to mark his contribution to Cork City and the National League.
Keeper David Platt made a disastrous error five minutes from the break after receiving a straightforward back-pass. Instead of clearing the ball, Platt dribbled around the lurking Pat Morley, but when he eventually tried to kick it clear, he totally miskicked. It left John Cotter with the task of setting up Morley for the easiest of goals from close range.
The game petered out after that, but for Barry it was a fitting performance to signal his retirement.
“But, we proved them wrong and went on a great run to finish the season. Hopefully the club can build on this,” Barry signed off.
