Round 5 of the Bus Éireann Women’s National League has produced some very interesting results today (Sunday).

Peamount United finished with an impressive 5-1 scoreboard against Shamrock Rovers in Greenogue this afternoon, and Cork Women’s FC lost 0-2 to Wexford Youth’s FC in CIT Stadium.

Castlebar Celtic have certainly shaken Raheny United after a stellar performance in Morton Stadium today.

Mullin opened the scoring for Castlebar after just six minutes, with a goal from teammate Aileen Gilroy after 14 minutes. A scoring blitz followed from both sides, with Castlebar looking set to triumph 5-4 until a 91st minute penalty from Raheny’s Rebecca Creagh leveled the sides once and for all. Raheny’s goals came from Katie McCabe, Siobhan Killeen, Ciara Grant, Mary Waldron and Rebecca Creagh.

A windswept Greenogue was venue for the Dublin derby between Peamount United and Shamrock Rovers this afternoon.
