WNL era[edit]

In 2011–12 , together with Shamrock Rovers, Castlebar Celtic , Cork Women's F.C., Raheny United and Wexford Youths, Peamount United were founder members of the Women's National League.[6] Peamount United were also the inaugural league champions, finishing three points clear of second placed Raheny United. They completed a league double by also winning the WNL Cup, defeating Shamrock Rovers 1–0 in the final.[7] Stephanie Roche was the league's top goalscorer with 26 goals.[8] She also scored the winner in the WNL Cup final.[9] Roche formed a "devastating" strike partnership with Sara Lawlor who contributed 15 goals to Peamount United's league success. Lawlor was named Player of the Season at the inaugural end of season awards ceremony.[10] In 2013–14, while playing for Peamount United against Wexford Youths, Roche also scored an acclaimed goal which went viral on YouTube.[11][12] Footage of the goal was uploaded to the internet by team manager Eileen Gleeson as the matches were not televised.[13] Later that year Roche, James Rodríguez and Robin van Persie were finalists for the 2014 FIFA Puskás Award, for the best goal of the year. At the 2014 FIFA Ballon d'Or awards ceremony on 12 January 2015, Roche finished in second place to Rodríguez[14] with 33% of the vote.
