Finn Harps are back in the Premier Division after a night of high drama and excitement at Finn Park on Friday night.

Finn Harps are back in the Premier Division after a night of high drama and excitement at Finn Park on Friday night.

BJ Banda headed Harps back into the big time when his goal with just three minutes of extra time left on the watch, to give Ollie Horgan’s side a 2-1 aggregate victory over Limerick.

It was the stuff of dreams. Harps had taken the lead on the night through Michael Funston shortly before half time.

The tie was heading towards penalties until Banda popped up with a goal that will live long in the memory for those in the crowd of 3,200.
