Fairgame #28 | Pride In Sport
It’s PRIDE. Cities across the world are draping themselves in the rainbow flag and LGBT+ communities are taking to the streets in celebration and protest, in acts of affirmation and demonstrations of the communities visibility. We’re joined by two sporting powerhouses to talk about PRIDE in SPORT…
Firstly, the stick wielding wonder-woman, Captain of the Pink Ladies, Dublin’s answer to Beth Porter; Rachel Barry. And in the other FAIRGAME hotseat is a woman whom we could introduce as a vital member of the Dublin Ladies Football panel who won an All Ireland in 2010 and scored two goals in the 2014 Final, the ex-captain of the Irish Women’s Basketball Team, who first donned the green jersey as a nipper when she played for the U-18’s Irish Women’s Football team. HOWEVER, she made the switch to the oval ball at the ripe old age of 35 when she joined the Irish Rugby XV’s squad as a FIERCE member of the front row, playing in two Six Nations campaigns and making her mark in the 2017 Women’s World Cup and winning 2017 Women’s Player of the Year; the one’n’only Lindsay Peat.
