“Meeting girls from different counties is a really nice aspect. Trying to break down those language barriers is definitely a challenge for me!! The whole college experience has to be the best days of your life. Being awarded the WGPA scholarship takes off the pressures. Playing sport creates a pressure free life. It also helps me to balance my time.

The advice I would give is don’t sacrifice sport for exams. Go training and play matches throughout as this helps to clear your mind, helps you to retain content and concentrate better.

I’ve always aspired to be a PE teacher since a very young age. I would consider myself passionate about my career and I hope to influence the younger generations to become physically active

Every year I suppose every team aims to be as successful as possible. Personally, I hope to play to the best of my ability and play a part in this hopeful process.”

In Summary…

Sporting Hero: Breige Corkery, have to admire her accolades

Funniest thing to ever happen: There has been quite a few. Being 2mm away from being fully blinded in one eye has to be a stand out. My friends and I thought it was the funniest moment at the time and still lives up to it.

Favourite team mate/player: In terms of seriousness Jennifer Grant, she’s a leader both on and off the pitch. In terms of a messer it would have to be Sarah Rowe.

Favourite Manager(s), and why?:  Peter Clarke, he’s an absolute gem. Made college football a very enjoyable experience this year.

Hardest thing and best thing about playing at county level: Sometimes balancing my time can be a slight struggle. Achieving goals as a team has to be the best.

Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given: Be comfortable being uncomfortable.

Favourite interest / talent / hobby away from GAA: I enjoy a sneaky adventure, big fan of eating out on a regular basis…maybe just the once or twice a day!!

Three words other people would use to describe you: Long, lazy, giraffe.

What are you most proud of so far (on or off the field!): My parents.
