In Pictures: Paddy McCourt Bids Farewell On Huge Night For Finn Harps

Whether or not Finn Harps secured their place in next season's Airtricity Premier Division, tonight was to signal the final professional appearance of Paddy McCourt.

Leading 1-0 from the first-leg in Donegal last week, Finn Harps travelled to Limerick knowing that a draw would be enough. In the end, a massive performance from Ollie Horgan's side resulted in a 2-0 win for Harps, and a place in next season's top-flight.

For the 34-year-old McCourt, the night didn't perhaps go exactly to plan on a personal note. Having given Finn Harps their solitary goal in the opening leg, the former Celtic man was substituted off injured after only 15-minutes of play.

However, in his absence Harps rallied well. Goals from Mark Timlin and Nathan Boyle securing a great night for the Donegal side.
