Women in Sport 2017 – Sinead Galvin

Sport for Business, in partnership with Liberty Insurance, is publishing our third annual list of the 50 Most Influential Women in Irish Sport.

This is not about Women’s sport, it is about the influence that women are wielding across all sport.  We will identify leaders on and off the field of play.  They will include those who are role models in terms of their abilities on and off the field of play.  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.

Sinead Galvin


Sinead Galvin established Galvin Sports Management in 2016 and has become a real force in terms of representing athletes across the sporting spectrum.

From Women’s Rugby international Sophie Spence to Paralympian Ellen Keane and hurdler Thomas Barr to Hockey’s superstar goalie David Harte and Badminton’s Scott Evans she has built a good mix of potential brand ambassadors and guided them well through the challenges of playing as well away from the white lines of sport as within them.

Galvin was previously Account Director at Wilson Hartnell responsible for AIB and Electric Ireland and prior to that, she worked for several years as the Marketing and Communications Manager at Athletics Ireland. She is a graduate of Dublin Institute of Technology.
