Gender no barrier in the next Girls Play Too

A new selection of inspiring Irish female athletes for book two of Girls Play Too—just published.

Whether it’s Kellie Harrington’s dominance in the boxing ring, or Rachael Blackmore’s phenomenal success in the saddle in 2021, Irish women are leading the way through their remarkable sporting achievements.

With her popular fairy-tale touch, RTÉ’s Jacqui Hurley tells the real-life stories of women who have proved that gender is not a barrier to success.

Each new story in Girls Play Too: Book 2 is one of empowerment and overcoming adversity, and the role models celebrated here are sure to inspire the next generation of Irish sportswomen.

Based on interviews with the featured athletes and fully illustrated in colour, the second volume of Girls Play Too continues from where the first book left off, but with a new selection of inspiring Irish female athletes from the worlds of GAA, horse-racing, athletics, hockey, and a host of figures who are excelling in their chosen sport.
