All the goals from this afternoon's thrilling Women's Cup final

Shelbourne and Wexford Youths went the distance and produced an absolute classic.

THE WOMEN’S FAI Cup final never fails to deliver and this year’s edition went the distance.

Twelve months ago we were treated to Katie McCabe’s superlative free-kick as Raheny United edged past UCD Waves to lift the FAI Women’s Cup.

And Siobhan Killeen followed suit with this spectacular curling finish from just outside the box.

The 22-year-old picked the ball up 40 yards from goal before manufacturing a yard of space for herself to aim fire.

Substitute goalkeeper Tamara Furlong had no chance.

A goal worthy of winning any game, not least a cup final.

But just as it looked like Killeen would be the cup final hero for the second year running, Wexford Youths conjured a late equaliser.
