Mary White is one of the leading women’s sports journalists in the country. For 14 years she covered ladies football in her spare time while working a full-time job. Her interest in ladies football first began as an intercounty player. She then became PRO of the Cork County Board, aged just 22, to help garner more publicity for players, before covering the sport for local and national newspapers. She has represented her county in three different sports – ladies football, basketball and soccer – while also representing Ireland in tag rugby.
