Clare’s Chloe Moloney has collected her second Women’s National League medal following Peamount Utd’s success on Sunday.

Peamount retained their Women’s National League title in dramatic fashion as they came from behind to beat Shelbourne 3-1 in a winner-takes-all game at PRL Park on Saturday night. A late brace from captain Áine O’Goman and one from midfielder Karen Duggan turned the tie on its head after Emily Whelan had fired Shels in front early in the second half.

Chloe transferred to the Dublin club in January 2017 having represented her country at U16, U17 and U19 level. Prior to that, the central defender lined out for Connolly Celtic and Galway Utd.

Christy Lougheed’s side won the game in front of the eyes of Republic of Ireland Women’s National Team Manager Vera Pauw.

There was no game time afforded to Chloe as the Peamount claimed the title. At the beginning of the month, the club suffered penalty heartbreak in a Champions League qualifier losing 6-5 to Glasgow City on penalties.

This year, Chloe has played a key role in attack for Clare’s intermediate ladies footballers and is currently top scorer in the championship. The Kilmurry Ibrickane clubwoman has formed part of a lethal full-forward line alongside Grainne Nolan and Niamh O’Dea for James Murrihy’s side. This week, she described football as “my first love”.
