Memories of a wonderful day in Tullamore on 31st March when the club was represented in two separate age groups of the Girls FAI All Ireland Cups. Emma Donohoe’s U14 squad took on Mervue United from Galway, and Sean Kelly’s U16 squad met Hannover Harps from Carlow. A rare achievement for any club to have a double finalists.
Both games were closely fought affairs; Mervue United were one goal ahead for most of the U14 final before Peamount fought back to level the scores mid way through the second half and then score a fantastic winner to lift and retain the U14 cup a second year.
The U16 game was equally tight; there were goal scoring opportunities for both side being created throughout however the game appeared locked until Peamount found the net twice within two minutes just before the half time break. Hannover Harps played right through to the last moment but were unable to break down the Peamount side.
