Louise Conlon, Camogie Association

Louise Conlon has been serving as Interim Chief Executive of the Camogie Association since the start of the Liberty Insurance All Ireland Championship season, following the departure from the role of Joan O’Flynn.

Conlon joined the Association as Technical Development and Participation Manager from the Defence Forces in January. While there she held a number of management and leadership roles and most recently had served as Aide-de-Camp to the President of Ireland.

The Kildare native studied Business at Galway-Mayo Institute of technology and joined the Defence Forces from college. While there she founded the Camogie and Ladies Football clubs for serving members and represented Kildare at inter-county level and as a team mentor. She is also a former Camogie Chairperson of Clane GAA Club.

It has been a strong year for the sport with Quarter Finals in the Championship televised live on RTÉ and the second biggest attendance at an All Ireland Final driven by the impressive ‘Go Together’ campaign.

The process to appoint a permanent CEO is nearing its conclusion and Conlon’s name is in the mix for that.  Regardless of the outcome, she has been a strong performer through the summer.


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.
