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.
