The Camogie Association has this morning confirmed the appointment of Sinéad McNulty as its new Ard Stiúrthóir.
McNulty is a Dublin native, and a graduate of the Leisure Management and MBA programmes at TU Dublin (DIT). She has been Head of Sport at the third level institution for the past ten years and overseen the transition of sports facilities as a central focus of the new Grangegorman Campus.
She brings valuable experience from community sports development and leisure consultancy having worked in sport development roles in Dublin City Council and Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, and as a leisure consultant with Holohan Leisure before joining TU Dublin (DIT) in 2008.
A friend of Sport for Business since our early days, McNulty has also been a highly valued colleague on the Board of the Dublin City Sport and Wellbeing Partnership.
She served as Chairperson of the Scheme Implementation Group of the Government Grant Scheme supporting intercounty Camogie and Ladies Gaelic Football players, Chairperson of Student Sport Ireland’s Finance and Governance Committee, and a member of the GAA’s Towards 2034 Committee.
She is a member of Round Towers GAA Club in Clondalkin, alongside GAA Head of Communications Alan Milton, where she played Ladies Gaelic Football and has worked with the development committee in the club to secure new facilities and government grant aid.
McNulty will take up her new position in June and is a brilliant choice to lead the organisation to its next stage of development.
“While I am sorry to be departing TU Dublin, and the wonderful colleagues that I have worked with over the past 11 years both in TU Dublin and across the Higher Education sport sector, I am excited to take on the role of Ard Stiúrthóir with the Camogie Association,” said McNulty.
“I look forward to working with the volunteers, staff, players and supporters across the country, and bring my experience and energy to further develop the sport and the Association. It is an exciting time for Camogie, and the broader Gaelic Games family, with the recently launched Women in Sport Policy, augmenting the National Sports Policy and reaffirming the national commitment to the development of sport in Ireland – particularly women’s sport.”
“I am delighted to announce the appointment of Sinéad McNulty as our new Ard Stiúrthóir to lead the Association in the years to come,” added Uachtarán an Cumann Camógaíochta Kathleen Woods.
“Sinéad has been appointed after a thorough recruitment process and is a high-calibre appointment who will bring great experience and business acumen to the role.”
A great choice and looking forward to continuing our own relationship with Camogie at a personal and professional level.
