First Day for New Ladies Gaelic Regional Games Development Officer

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association were delighted to have a new member of staff in head office today.

Mary Corry who originates from Co. Clare arrived in Croke Park this morning to take up her role as the latest RGDO to join the LGFA Games Development Team.

Mary played, coached and volunteered with her home club Shannon Gaels Ladies when she was living in Clare.  She left Clare to study at the University of Chester and completed a degree in PE/Sports Science & Geography, followed by a Masters in Sociology of Sport & Exercise Science. She was one of the founding members of the Chester Gaels University Club (2003), who were the first University Club in the northwest of England to acquire their own facility in 2006.

Following study, Mary worked as Sports Co-ordinator at the University, before taking a career break to Seoul, South Korea. She then represented the Seoul Gaels at the Asian Gaelic Games, and supported the Club with further development.

She then returned to the UK and worked as Sports Club Development Officer for Cheshire West & Chester Council from March 2010 until taking up the position as RGDO with the LGFA.

Mary has a wealth of experience in the world of sport, from playing to volunteering, to employment, to academics – she has done it all and will be a fantastic addition to the Ladies Gaelic Football Assocaition.
