Video: Leaving Cert Student Wins Promotion For Finn Harps With Rapturous Late Goal


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.

This was the commentary for the goal on BBC Radio Foyle.

And the post-match celebrations.
