Harps earn place in the top flight

The Irish Times - Sports Weekend - - SPORTS -

LIM­ER­ICK FC ..................... 0 FINN HARPS ........................ 2 (Agg: 0-3)

Mark Tim­lin’s goal two min­utes into first half added time sparked huge cel­e­bra­tions as Finn Harps re­gained their place in the Premier Di­vi­sion, send­ing Lim­er­ick down to the First Di­vi­sion in the process.

The goal was clin­i­cally fin­ished after good work in the build-up by Mikey Place. It left Lim­er­ick with a huge moun­tain to climb and, though they im­proved in the sec­ond half, a goal by Nathan Boyle en­sured Harps’ pro­mo­tion.

The re­sult was a fit­ting end to the ca­reer of Paddy McCourt who got a stand­ing ova­tion when he left the ac­tion after 17 min­utes.
