Aine O'Gorman savoured an "extra special night" with back-to-back Women's National League champions Peamount United and immediately turned her attentions to a huge clash with Germany as the big games keep coming.

O'Gorman was inspired for her club, scoring twice to help them battle past fellow title challengers Shelbourne 3-1 to seal their second successive league crown.

Ireland need to somehow get a result against Germany on Tuesday week to keep alive their hopes of qualifying for the Euros, while Peamount also have an FAI Cup final against Cork City to look forward to.

"It's obviously extra special when you do it back to back," O'Gorman told RTÉ Sport after Saturday evening's win against Shels.

"It's such an amazing team, and squad and club. I'm over the moon, especially the way it panned out as well. We went 1-0 down and had to dig in deep and show our character.

"It was a cup final feel in the first ten, 15 minutes. Everything was a bit hectic  and all over the place. Coming into the second half we started to get a little bit of rhythm. We knew we'd more gears in us.

"We had to dig in and keep showing our character. We got the reward in the end. 

"There's a bit of relief when the third goal goes in because you don't know what's going to happen, especially when they're applying pressure and making subs and have really good attacking players."

O'Gorman now has the luxury of focusing completely on the Germans. A win would send Ireland into the play-offs, but they'll be up against arguably the best team on the planet.

We go into the international break now and my focus will turn to the Germany game," added O'Gorman.

"We can go down to Wexford with [the league] in the bag. It would have been a difficult place to go had we got a draw.

"It's really exciting. We've had the Champions League and all these top games, the cup final to come. We're looking to do the double and bring that FAI Cup home."
