Best wishes to our four Peamount players traveling to Sapou in Spain on Saturday to represent Ireland in the U15 Docherty Cup.
Peamount’s U17 WNL got their season off to a good start with a 4-2 win against Sligo Rovers in PRL Park, Greenogue on Saturday. The squad has worked hard in the preseason to be ready and their discipline and preparation were rewarded. The U17s are idle for the Easter weekend and travel to play Galway United in their next fixture on 27th April.
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.
Eleanor Ryan Doyle scored twice to secure a crucial win for Peamount Senior Ladies against Wexford Youth FC. Its early days yet but the determined Peamount United Ladies have made a super start to the 2019 season with their third win out of three opening matches. Read more here.
Victoria Park, Tullamore is the venue tomorrow, 31st March, for Peamounts U14 and our U16s girls when they compete in the FAI All Ireland Finals. Its a tremendous feat for both teams to make the finals. Come on out to lend your support to the girls and get behind them as they push to secure the trophies.
Peamount came from behind in this evening’s opening WNL game, against a top flight Cork City Womens FC side, to secure all three points. After Cork City took an early lead, with Katie McCarthy, scoring in the very first minute – just 21 seconds into the 2019 season, Amber Barrett wasted no time in finding the back of the Cork City net when she scored on the seven minute mark! Midway through the first half, the legendary Aine O’Gorman put Peamount into the lead, during a goalmouth scramble, with another goal that proved to be the match winner. Well done Peas, 2-1, an absolutely fantastic start to the 2019 season!
Great to see four upcoming Peamount players, Jessie Stapleton, Maria Reynolds, Rebecca McMahon, and Orlagh Fitzpatrick representing Ireland in the U15 International Friendly with Northern Ireland today in Armagh. Peamount pride!
