Elaine Carey, Three Ireland

Elaine Carey is the Chief Commercial Officer with Three Ireland and one of Ireland’s leading businesswomen.

She has overall charge of the company’s substantial investment in sport through its partnership with the FAI that runs until beyond the European Championships that will be hosted partly in Ireland in 2020.

A native of Limerick, Carey attended the City’s Institute of Technology where she gained a degree in Business and Computing.

Having spent time with Esat Digicel in Ireland and the Caribbean, she then worked for Eircom before joining Three in 2007 and rising to her senior role in the company six years later.

Three renewed its partnership with the 3Arena in 2018 and remains one of the most significant corporate backers of sport and entertainment in Ireland.


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 the coming weeks, we will identify more leaders on and off the field of play. They will include those who are role models in terms of their abilities and what they have achieved. 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.

We want your voice in who the remainder should be. Who do you come across in your working life within sport, or in your position as an observer, that you feel deserves recognition.

Contact us today Quoting Women in Sport 2018 Nomination to let us know who you think should be joining us.

This year we will be inviting each of our nominated 50 to join us at our Annual Women in Sport Conference, hosted this year in the studios of RTÉ on Wednesday morning, December 5th.

We will be unveiling the line up of speakers we have joining us over the coming weeks and you can book one of the limited places available to join us by clicking below.

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.
