Interests and Achievements
Both ice and inline hockey have been a passion of mine for many years. In recent years I have had the privilege of representing Ireland on the Irish Women’s Ice Hockey team in the World Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria 2011 and the World Championship Qualifiers in Izmir, Turkey 2012. While in college I held positions as Equipment Manager and Club Captain of the Inline Hockey Club in UCC. I have also helped coach the Cork junior team, the Wolfpack. When time away from research and hockey training permits I also participate in solo pursuits like Muay Thai and middle distance running. Aside from sports I also enjoy photography, travelling and reading.
