Áine Plunkett, SSE Airtricity

Áine Plunkett is the Marketing Lead who heads up the sponsorship and marketing of SSE Airtricity.

Despite stepping back from the Dublin Marathon this year the team and the company left it in good shape with multiple new initiatives launched during its period as the naming rights partner.

The focus now will be on the partnership with the FAI and the SSE Airtricity League.

Plunkett has worked across all aspects of the marketing mix with SSE Airtricity during her twelve years at the company.  She works closely in sponsorship with Leanne Sheill who was one of our Sport for Business 30 Under 30 named earlier this year.

Prior to that, she worked with the Irish Blood Transfusion Service.  She is a graduate in Marketing from Dublin Institute of Technology

50 Women of Influence in Irish Sport 2018 is brought to you by Sport for Business in partnership with our friends at Liberty Insurance.

Over recent weeks we have identified 50 Women who are leaders in sport, on and off the field of play. You can see the full list here. They include those who are role models in terms of their abilities and what they have achieved. They 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.

The list is not definitive.  There are 50 more and 50 more again who would have a valid claim to featuring on it.  From January 2019 we will have a weekly feature identifying more of the Women who are working every day to ensure that positions of influence on sport are based on what you can do rather than on the narrow focus of gender

Contact us today Quoting Women in Sport 2019 Nomination to let us know who you think we should be featuring.

Our 5th Annual Women in Sport conference takes place in the studios of RTÉ on Wednesday morning, December 5th.

This event is now completely sold out.

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.
