Shelbourne got their Continental Tyres Women’s National League Cup off to a great start against Galway WFC in heavy rain at the AUL Complex.
Shels and Galway cancelled each other out in the horrendous conditions with the deadlock finally being broken in the 73rd minute by Rebecca Creagh.
Siobhan Killeen swung over a right-wing cross that found Creagh at the back post to head home her third goal in two matches against Don O'Riordan's team.
Killeen doubled Shels' advantage with 10 minutes remaining with an edge-of-the-box strike, with Noelle Murray sealing the victory in stoppage time.
Elsewhere, last season's defeated finalist Peamount United got off to a wining start with a Lauryn O’Callaghan double sealing the victory over Castlebar Celtic.
O’Callaghan gave Peas the lead after the opening minutes in Celtic Park before Lauren Kelly extended their lead on 35 minutes after finishing off a slick team move to claim her first goal of the season.
The hosts produced a brave performance and looked to get back into the game before being caught on the counter attack as O’Callaghan claimed her second and Peamount's third.
The games between Kilkenny United and Cork City, along with the UCD Waves versus Wexford Youths fixture were both postponed and will be re-fixed in due course.
 
Shelbourne 3-0 Galway WFC
Castlebar Celtic 0-3 Peamount United
Kilkenny United WFC P-P Cork City WFC
UCD Waves P-P Wexford Youths WFC
