Finn Harps got a dramatic extra-time winner against Limerick on Friday night to claim promotion to the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division.

Trailing Limerick 1-0 from the first leg of the promotion/relegation playoff at Markets Field on Monday, Harps got a first half equaliser through Michael Funston.

Just three minutes from a penalty shootout, 17-year-old BJ Banda - a Leaving Cert student - glanced a cross from full back Damien McNulty.

Here's fan footage of the goal thanks to Daithi Ramsay.

Final whistle blown, Banda went into the crowd to celebrate with his mother.
