Sinéad McNulty is the Ard Stiúrthóir or CEO of the Camogie Association, a position she has held now for a little over four years.

Over the course of her time to date at the Association she has overseen a closer commercial relationship with the GAA that has resulted in additional backing from Glen Dimplex for the All Ireland Championship and PwC for the Camogie All Stars which took place over the past weekend.

She sits on the Gaelic Games Integration Group chaired by former President Mary McAleese and on the Management Committee of the GAA, as well as the Towards 20234 Committee of the Association.

This year’s Glen Dimplex All Ireland Camogie Finals at Croke Park saw a record attendance of 30,191 through the turnstiles.

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

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

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.


See who else has been included so far on the list for 2023

This is the 11th 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 2023.

We are proud to publish the list in partnership 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 step up again, raising the number of new entrants to at least 40 percent of fresh names from last year.

It 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 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.
