‘Women in Sport’


In GMIT Castlebar today, in front of a huge crowd, four of our female students had the privilege of sharing the stage with Ireland’s top National and International Athletes at the prestigious ‘Woman in Sport’ conference hosted by the Mayo Sports Partnership. Cassie Niland, Aoife Conway, Michelle Grogan and Rebecca Vahey-Brennan presented their findings from their recent survey on Women in Sport. Other presenters included Olympians Jessica Barr and Ellen Keane also well known athletes Cora Staunton and Ellen Keane. The event was hosted by RTE presenter Jacqueline Hurley and Mid-West’s Angelina Nugent. The girls did an excellent job and represented Ballyhaunis Community School with distinction. Well done to all concerned.
