The Republic of Ireland beat Northern Ireland 2-0 in their opening 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup qualifier at Mourneview Park in Lurgan thanks to a Rachel Furness own goal and Megan Campbell's long-range strike.
The Reading midfielder headed into her own net from a raking Megan Campbell long throw, which have caused the Northern Ireland defence problems earlier in the game.
An earlier Campbell throw had been headed off the crossbar by striker Steph Roche, while a cross from the Manchester City full-back saw Louise Quinn's header well-saved.
