Athletics Ireland, Cycling Ireland, Irish Athletic Boxing Association (IABA), Rowing Ireland and Triathlon Ireland have once again collaborated to bring an exciting and innovative event to the female coaches within their respective sports. 

The Women in Sport Female Coaches Networking Day will take place on Sunday 6th November at Clayton Hotel, Liffey Valley, Dublin from 10am – 3pm where female coaches will get the unique opportunity to network and learn from one another.

This event has come about from overwhelming feedback from coaches who have gone through the Women in Sport Coaching Pathway Programme over the last two years, another initiative the five National Governing Bodies collaborate on. The coaches have spoken about the need for more networking events and the benefit they get from meeting up and learning from one another.

Lisa Fallon has been confirmed as they keynote speaker. Lisa is currently working at the highest level of World Football in FIFA's High Performance Division in their Global Football Development Division, Fallon was Ireland's first ever female Head Coach of a men's professional football club when appointed by Galway United in 2021.

In 2013 she became Ireland's first ever female manager of a men's football team. She also serves on the Board of Paralympics Ireland, is Chair of their High Performance Committee & is on the Olympic Federation of Ireland's Gender Equality Commission.

Dr Phil Kearney, Lecturer in Motor Skill Acquisition, Coaching and Performance at University of Limerick will be on hand to deliver an education session on “Layering 4Cs into your coaching for optimal athlete development”.

Kearney said:

“The female coaching networking day is a fantastic initiative. I’m looking forward to seeing coaches from Athletics, Boxing, Cycling, Rowing and Triathlon coming together to share their experiences, learn from each other and build the connections that can help them achieve their coaching goals.”

This event would not be possible without funding from the Women in Sport programme at Sport Ireland. Nora Stapleton, Women in Sport Lead at Sport Ireland says a key aim is to increase the number of female coaches from grassroots to high performance.

Stapleton said:

“Recognising the importance of networking and peer support, it is fantastic to see each of the five sports come together for this Women in Sport Coaching Networking Day. Learning from coaches within your sport is beneficial but learning from those in other sports provides even more opportunity for upskilling and education.”

“I want to congratulate each of the sports, and in particular their Women in Sport Leads, Elaine Cahill, Cycling Ireland, Louise McKenzie, IABA, Lilly-Ann O’Hora, Athletics Ireland, Anna Grealish, Triathlon Ireland and Ceara O’Connor, Rowing Ireland. It is because of their drive and passion, that programmes and events such as these take place. Through the supports provided by the sports, additional opportunities for coaches to upskill, learn and receive dedicated mentoring on their coaching journey, we hope to continue to progress females on the coaching pathway.“


Elaine Cahill, Women in Sport Officer for Cycling Ireland speaks of the importance of the networking event:

“I’m really excited for it, the collaboration between the five sports over the last few years has been instrumental both personally in terms of being able to bounce ideas off peers and in terms of being able to work together on Women in Sport programmes. The networking event will allow coaches from each of the five sports to form those connections and relationships across sports to strengthen their network and learn from one another to not only help them as coaches but ultimately have an impact on the people they coach also.”

Cycling Ireland CEO, Matt McKerrow says he’s delighted Cycling Ireland are supporting a programme with a focus on female coaches:

“It’s great to have a programme which highlights our female coaches. This networking day will be a fantastic event where female coaches will be able liaise with one another, learn from each other which will in turn lift the level of coaching that’s available to everyone in the Irish sports sector.”
