50 Women of Influence in Irish Sport

Sport for Business has begun the publication of our annual list of 50 Influential Women in Irish Sport.

We are delighted to be once again supported in this initiative by Liberty Insurance, sponsors of the All Ireland Camogie Championship and longtime backers of Women in Sport in Ireland. Each day leading up to our Annual Women in Sport Conference at RTÉ on December 5th we will publish two Women who we believe have had a major influence on Irish sport in 2018.

This project began back in 2014 in response to a comment that we would be lucky to name 20 Women that played an influential role in Irish sport.

It was never about Women’s sport, it is about the influence that women are wielding across all sport.

Read the full entry for Sarah Keane, Su Carty, Katie Mullan, Tracey Kennedy, Cliona O’Leary, Ellen Keane, Niamh O’Donoghue, Sarah O’Connor, Mary O’Connor, Dr Una May, Deirdre Ashe, Gemma Bell, Michelle Carpenter, Sinead Galvin, Katie Taylor, Miriam Malone

Over the coming weeks, we will identify more leaders on and off the field of play. They will include those who are role models in terms of their abilities and what they have achieved. They will come from teams and individual sports, from sponsorship partners, from the media, from the administrative corridors of power and from places where influence may be subtle but no less powerful.

We want your voice in who the remainder should be. Who do you come across in your working life within sport, or in your position as an observer, that you feel deserves recognition.

Contact us today Quoting Women in Sport 2018 Nomination to let us know who you think should be joining us.

This year we will be inviting each of our nominated 50 to join us at our Annual Women in Sport Conference, hosted this year in the studios of RTÉ on Wednesday morning, December 5th.

We will be unveiling the line up of speakers we have joining us over the coming weeks and will make places available to book, initially for Sport for Business members, from Monday, October 17th.

We will also be publishing this year’s Women of Influence list, together with other interviews and content relating to the cause of promoting Women in Sport in a commemorative booklet.
