Niamh Tallon founded the Her Sport website in 2018 with the goals of empowering women in sport, levelling the playing field and increasing participation of women in sport.
Stepping back from full-time work in December, her focus is now on growing Her Sport and making an impact, though she is still helping out her previous employer Readychef with a move to digital in the current climate.
Her Sport aims to inspire women and girls of all ages to participate in sport, encouraging them to try anything from running to ultimate frisbee, football to softball.
With an increase in coverage, exclusive interviews and video content, the business has seen good growth and now has followership on Instagram of 5,000.
Tallon graduated from UCD with a Bachelors Degree in Commerce and worked in the beauty sector before undertaking a Masters at the UCD Smurfit Graduate School in 2017 and then heading to New York for a spell.
