Sinéad McNulty is the Ard Stiúrthóir or CEO of the Camogie Association, a position to which she was appointed in June of 2019.

In the past year, she has steered the Association towards a closer commercial relationship with the GAA and overseen the arrival of Carmel Naughton and Glen Dimplex as major long-term sponsors of the All Ireland Championship.

The next twelve months will be focused on the integration work needing to be done between her own sport, Ladies Football and the GAA.

McNulty is a former Head of Sport at TU Dublin and oversaw the transition of sports facilities as a central focus of the new Grangegorman Campus.

She previously worked in sport development roles in Dublin City Council and Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.

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.

This is the tenth edition of our Sport for Business listing of 50 Women of Influence in Irish Sport.

Read more about the list and nominate who you think should be a part of it in 2022.

We are proud to do so again this year with AIG, an organisation that has pledged its commitment to equality in its partnerships with Gaelic Games, Tennis, Golf and more, for whom “Effort is Equal” and with whom we have ambitious plans to extend the reach of this annual celebration of the Women who are making a difference.

This year’s list will be drawn as before from the worlds of leadership, partnership, storytelling, and performance.

We began this journey in 2013 when challenged that we would never be able to produce a list of twenty Influential Women in Irish Sport. The 20 stretched to 30, then 40 and 50 and it still does not do justice to the talent that is out there.

This year once more, to keep things fresh we will introduce at least 30 percent of fresh names from last year. That will be the hardest part to have some names replaced but if it was too easy it would be of less value.

The list we will continue to build over the coming weeks is a snapshot of those women who are making a mark on how sport is played, consumed, grown and delivered.

They are part of making the role of women in sport unexceptional by being exceptional in what they do.
