Last night was historic for Women’s football in Ireland and our Academy player Annie was there to soak it all in.

Vera Pauw, her team and all the ladies of the @faireland WNT have achieved something that will inspire the future generation of girls and boys playing football in Ireland.

Moments like this fill everyone on this little Island with pride and show what can happen if you have belief in yourself. The ladies on this team are true role models for so many young girls, taking time to speak with the fans, take pictures and sign shirts after every game.

Well done to each and everyone involved in the WNT.

P.S Annie was making sure @leannekiernan_ was there in some form by wearing the shirt Leanne kindly gifted her after the Slovakia game.
