The 2018 Women's FAI Cup final will see a somewhat unfamiliar narrative unfold, as both sides aim for double and treble title success.

Recently crowned league champions, for the fourth time in five years, Wexford Youths, are looking to add a second FAI Cup title since 2015 to their cabinet. Additionally, they also picked up the National League shield earlier this year which sets them up for a mouth-watering treble should they prevail on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Peamount United are hoping to end an eight-year wait for FAI Cup glory having already pocketed the League Cup in 2018.

They defeated Wexford Youths in that final and Wexford captain Kylie Murphy is acutely aware of the challenge they will bring to the Aviva Stadium on Sunday.

"They were an awful lot better than us that day," she told RTÉ Sport.

"It was a very bad day at the office for us to be honest. Nobody likes losing, it's tough to take. You want to win as many trophies as you can.

"We knew walking off the pitch we didn't deserve it and Peamount 100 per cent did deserve it. In our heads, we're at a stage where you can't not show up for finals. You don't get another chance and you have to keep thinking of that coming up to Sunday."

The major discussion point ahead of this tie surrounds the availability of Republic of Ireland international and Wexford Youths player Rianna Jarrett. She recently broke a bone in her foot while on duty for Ireland and as it stands, she is unavailable for Tom Elmes’ side.

Murphy, however, says 'we're all saying our prayers' that she might be able to recover in time to play some part in what promises to be an intriguing tie.

Both sides booked their place in the FAI Cup final on the back of one-goal victories in their respective semi-finals.

Ireland forward Amber Barrett and recently retired international Áine O'Gorman were both on target in Peamount's 2-1 victory over Shelbourne and they will be key target players for James O’Callaghan's charges on Sunday.

Barrett has been especially threatening in front of goal this season and recently retained the National League golden boot award after netting 30 goals during the campaign. 

Katrina Parrock was the hero for Wexford in the FAI Cup semi-final win, as they dumped 2017 finalists UCD Waves out of the competition with a late goal.

That result sent them back to the FAI Cup final for the first time since 2016, when they were comprehensively defeated by a strong Shelbourne outfit.

With that in mind, Wexford undoubtedly have demons to vanquish, but Peamount are chasing a bit of history and Murphy understands the challenge that lies ahead.

"Anything can happen in a cup game," she says.

"You could play any team and anything could happen. We do feel like the two best teams are in the final, which is fantastic. There's 90 minutes of soccer and it's who wants it most.

"We went from winning a treble to losing 5-0 on live TV [ in the 2016 final]. It just shows how quick things can turn around. It's 90 minutes and if you don't show up for those 90 minutes, you can be crushed. And we know that Peamount can do that, they're a phenomenal team.

"We know what's ahead."
