Our under 18s represented the club in a Leinster Football association trial game against the best of all the other leagues on Wednesday the 5th under floodlights in FAI Headquarters in Abbotstown. A great experience for the squad who were a credit to the club both on and off the field. A positive outcome with three players – Dylan, Tas & Cezar being requested to attend the final selection training sessions this weekend in the AUL complex. Not in picture Adam & Jordan who were unavailable through injury. Best of luck to the lads in the final selection process.
Peamount opened their campaign on Saturday the 13/8/16 when they stunned champions Wexford Youths by securing a 1-0 win courtesy of a first-half strike from debutant Heather Payne.
The new-look Peas team started brightly and took the lead on 20 minutes when Galway girl Payne tucked in a cross from Sarah McKevitt. That goal proved to be the difference in spite of efforts from Wexford’s Emma Hansberry, Maria Delahunty, and Linda Douglas.
Congratulations to our U14B1 Team who won their league, well done lads

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND WU16 SQUAD:Tiegan Ruddy (Peamount United)Keelin McEntee (Peamount United)
Sharon Boyle’s side are preparing for the UEFA Development Tournament in Hungary next month so these fixtures in Dragon Park, Newport, will prove very useful to their progress. The UEFA Development tournament will see the Irish meet hosts Hungary, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Slovalkia.“The focus is on the May development tournament, so we’re preparing for this and then looking to help to prepare for the next step to U17s next season,” said Boyle.“We welcome back Tegan Ruddy, Heather Payne and Sadbh Doyle from the U17s where they had a good campaign in the UEFA Qualifiers. “You can see the influence that those three have brought to the group and the levels have improved in the sessions and hopefully it’ll show in the games.“We’ll expect two very tough tests for the girls against Wales. For many of them it’s their first time away trip as a group so naturally there’s a lot of nerves but they’ll benefit from the experience. Two of the girls Aoife Lynagh and Doireann Fahey played with the Irish Schools last week and did very well so we’ll monitor their progress this weekend.PEAMOUNT REPRESENTATIVES IN REPUBLIC OF IRELAND WOMEN’S U16 SQUAD: Tiegan Ruddy, Doireann Fahey, Keelin McEntee and Niamh Coombes.
