It’s hard to know how Dublin Ladies footballer Noelle Healy finds the time to balance a career as an anaesthetist and play senior intercounty football, but as she puts it, it’s “a delicate balance”.
Noelle credits the team atmosphere and the lessons she learns on the pitch with her Dublin team mates as the reason she was drawn to anaesthetics, which is why it’s so important to her to combine the two passions in her life.
With the Dublin Ladies Football Team into their fourth All-Ireland final in a row (playing Mayo, this Sunday at 4pm in Croke Park) Noelle will be hoping to add another All-Ireland to her list of great achievements.
Get an insight into her hectic daily life in episode 11 of the AIG #DublinOurTeam video series.
