Sue Ronan, FAI

Sue Ronan is Head of Women’s Football at the FAI.  She knows the game from every level having played on the streets of Crumlin, represented Ireland at International Level and then managed the Senior International team from 2010 to 2016.

Concentrating on the Development as opposed to the team management side of the sport here will reap long-term benefits that are already being felt.

UEFA are strong backers of programmes to encourage more young girls and Women into the game and Ronan is charged at an executive level within the FAI with implementing those and homegrown ones such as the increasingly important Soccer Sisters and Schools Programmes.

The Continental Tyres Women’s National League is becoming ever more established and there is continued progress in the international set-up from underage through to the Senior team.


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.
