Ireland U19 international McCabe, whose older brother is Shamrock Rovers star Gary McCabe, already has three hat-tricks to her name this season and clearly has a bright future ahead.

Six minutes before the break, Aine O’Gorman followed up Julie Ann Russell’s strike which came back off the crossbar to grab an equaliser.

In extra-time, Siobhan Killeen grabbed a second for Raheny, who win the competition for the third year on the trot.
