The Limerick Lady Podcast

Aug 16, 2022

Ann and Emma chat to Lauren Guilfoyle, a Chartered Physiotherapist, about women in sport. The discussion covers a wide variety of her experience and whether her life would be different if she had more visible female role models in sport in childhood. Emma reminisces that, as a child, she felt sport just wasn't for her and Ann grapples with the fact she finds herself supporting the women's English soccer team.

Lauren works with a variety of sports teams including Ireland Basketball & Cork Constitution RFC. 

She recently completed a Masters in Sport, Exercise and Performance Psychology at the University of Limerick.

Doctoral researcher with the Irish Rugby Injury Surveillance and has a passion for exploring new ways in social media to bring health and well-being educational content to the general public.
