The final score from the County Louth ground is Dundalk 5 Sligo Rovers 0 which sees the Lilywhites set a new top-flight points record.
John Mountney with two for the champions and Michael Duffy with another in a first half which also saw Pat Hoban have a penalty saved.
However, Hoban redeemed himself with a second-half brace to top off the celebratory mood at Oriel Park
Hoban's double sees him level Brendan Bradley's scoring record of 29 goals in a season.
Elsewhere, it ended up Bray Wanderers 0 Bohemians 5 - Dinny Corcoran with four including a first-half hat-trick for Bohs.
Before the game, Bohs announced they had tied down full-back Darragh Leahy with a new contract for 2019.
It finished Derry City 0 Cork City 3 at the Brandywell while the fans at Market's Field watched Limerick FC get beat by St Pat's 4-0.
The closest game of the night was the 8pm kick-off in Tallaght where Shamrock Rovers beat Waterford 3-1.
Finn Harps are a step closer to a Premier Division return.
The First Division playoff, second-leg, in Ballybofey saw Finn Harps beat Drogheda 2-0.
It means that Harps will face Limerick in that playoff, while Drogs are consigned to another year in the First Division.
