The official launch of the 2017 Lidl National Football League took place last Wednesday in the supermarket giants headquarters in Tallaght.
At the launch we had the pleasure of talking to Dublin’s five time winning All Star Sinead Goldrick about the new league season ahead, the new management, the strangeness of seeing your face on Lidl trolleys in stores and much more.
“Things are just starting out its a long season, but in terms of the new management, the feedback from the players is that it’s very positive and we are just looking forward to seeing how it goes on Sunday, but its a great start so far,” Sinead told the gathered media.
Sinead spoke about how strange it was seeing her face on Lidl shopping trolleys in stores and the ribbing she got from team mates.
“I remember going into a Lidl store and looked down at the trolley and i looked down and saw it on the trolley and i was what the hell, it was a bit strange i suppose because your not use to seeing yourself in that capacity and you would be getting a lot of slagging from the group, snapchats and stuff like that of your face.”
Besides a bigger attendance at ladies football games, Sinead would like to see the government show more equality for women in sport.
“I’d would love to see i suppose at a government level for funding to be same allocated to men’s and women’s.”
