Benfica stalwart won full set of domestic honours.

Debut v NI 26.11.1988, 2-0 win at Tolka Park. Billed as Theresa Leahy on FAI website.

Hit second goal in 2-0 friendly win v NI 17.10.93, in Sligo, after being recalled from nearly 4 years in international wilderness: her first goal for Ireland in "a tremendous performance". Also set up other goal for L Towler w "telling cross".

Sweden 7.5.88 prog: 21yo w 3 caps , top-scorer in Women's League of Ireland w Benfica. Hol prog 29.11.87 says debut v NI 2 weeks previously. Scored in a 6-0 friendly win over hapless NI at United Park, Drogheda, 3.9.95 from her position on RW. As a Rathfarnham player started in 3-1 home Euro qual win over Faroes 28.10.95. As at game v France at Turner's Cross 12.11.94 was 27yo Benfica player w "a number" of caps, but unlucky not to have won more, per match prog. Played well and hit post in 1986 LFAI Cup final but Benfica lost 1-0 to Dub Castle when A Styles scored a late free kick at Jonesboro, Limerick. She played for Benfica in the 92 LFAI Cup final which (for some reason) was played 10.1.93 at Dalymount Park in "atrocious" conditions. Benfica lost 4-1 to Welsox on penalties after a 1-1 AET draw. Had 3 caps when she progressed through 1991 trials to get "long awaited" recall under new boss L Gorman. Benfica teammates S Furlong and Y Lyons also in squad. Seen as a pacey/"nifty" winger who scored goals. Still playing for Benfica as late as April 2011, when her 2 goals helped to see off Seaview United 5-3 in the Wexford Cup. C Khassal scored a hat-trick.
