Clare’s Chloe Moloney got her hands on a first FAI Women’s Cup medal following further glory for Peamount Utd over the weekend.

Moloney was part of the Peamount squad that recorded a 6-0 win over Cork City. The Dublin side had been defeated by Wexford Youths in the previous two deciders. They claimed the title for the first time since 2010.

Chloe’s commitment to the Clare intermediate ladies footballers where she emerged as their top scorer in the championship forced her to miss out on some key games for Peamount including a clash with Wexford Youths that fell on the same day as their round two win over Laois.

Speaking last month, the central defender outlined, “Sometimes if the games clash it can be tough to keep your place. You are training with both squads and it is hard to pick one over the other, but the girls understood. There was no bad blood there. But I have no regrets about going back to football at all. I’m loving my football this year, it’s great, and to be in this position we’re in, I am so grateful to be part of it”.
