Ireland’s Olympians – Kate Kirby

To mark the Olympics that would have been taking place in Tokyo right now we have joined up with the sponsors of our Olympics Coverage on Sport for Business Indeed, to bring to life a series of interviews with those who would have played a part in Team Ireland’s participation.

Over the past couple of weeks, we should have been enthralled by their exploits, but it was not to be for now.

Instead, we met with the athletes, the officials, the support teams and others who would have played their part in the Olympic story of 2020 and will do so again in 2021.

Over the interviews, we have spoken of resilience, mental fortitude and the ability to see beyond the present to a future of achievement.

Where better then to bring the curtain down on the series by meeting up with Kate Kirby, Lead Psychologist with Team Ireland.

Who could be better to guide us through the mindset of the present and the future…


Look back on our earlier interviews in this series with Nhat Nguyen, Chloe Watkins, Shane Ryan, Sinéad Galvin, Cian O’Connor, Róisín Upton, Heather Boyle, and Patricia Heberle.
