Anyone who has an interest in women’s sport, especially here in Ireland, would do well to pay a visit to www.sportswomen.ie, a recent initiative by former Irish hockey player Sharon Hutchinson.
The site covers a huge array of women’s sports, from camogie and Gaelic football to table tennis, and if your sport is missing, contact Sharon and she’ll be delighted to include it.
There are very few major online platforms for women’s sport in Ireland, and this is one that should be made use of by all stakeholders, whether that’s the sporting organisations, the players, the coaches or the fans. By frequenting the site, following on social media, sharing the posts and so on, you can help spread the word and increase the awareness of women’s sport in your own circles and beyond.
As my favourite and oft-quoted saying goes,
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
