Katie Mullan, International Hockey Player

The exploits of the Women’s Hockey team have been a highlight of 2018 and Katie Mullan, as team Captain played a leading role in what the team achieved.

She graduated from UCD this summer with a Masters Degree in Biomedical Engineering but is taking time out from a career in that field to pursue the dream of professional hockey.

In September she started her new season with reigning German League Champions Club an der Alster in Hamburg.  The professional game and the training that goes with it will hopefully bring her and her many teammates from London who are now also playing overseas to a peak for Olympic Qualifying.

Mullan was born in Coleraine and started out in sport as a Camogie player with Eoghan Rua, beating Slaughtniel in two County senior finals in 2013 and 2014 before switching her primary focus to Hockey.

Doubling up as a champion and role model in two sports is a bit special. With the profile of her sport at a higher level than ever before, she has been thrust into the limelight and is coping admirably

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.
