Dublin’s Noelle Healy Gives Her Thoughts On FitrWoman App, Leinster Final And New Championship Structure


Noelle: “The New Championship Structure Is Brilliant It Gives Us A Chance To Playe Six Inter County Games.”


We caught up with Dublin’s TG4 All Star winner and 2017 Senior Player Of The Year Noelle Healy in Croke Park yesterday at the announcement of the new partnership between the LGFA and Orreco.

Noelle was in attendance in her capacity as Ambassador for Orreco’s new groundbreaking app Fitrwoman which provides personalised day-to-day evidence based training and nutrition suggestions tailored to the changing hormones in a woman’s menstrual cycle.

It also allows access to insights gleaned by Orreco’s two decades of working with top athletes including Olympic legend Sonia O’Sullivan and encourages women to maintain and manage their exercise regimes.

In an exclusive interview Noelle gave her thoughts on the new Fitrwoman App and the benefits it will provide to sportswomen and the hope that it will also help take the taboo and awkwardness from speaking about women’s menstrual cycles.

Noelle also discussed Dublin’s upcoming Leinster Championship Final on Sunday week against Westmeath and the serious challenge the girls from The Lake County will provide on the day.

Dublin haven’t played a game since they lifted their maiden division one league title back on the 6th of May, but the players returned to their clubs during that inter county hiatus to play a number of rounds in the club championship.

And Noelle says that return to the clubs for the players has been a great benefit to herself and the rest of her Dublin teammates and they have returned to the Dublin setup refreshed and raring to go.

Noelle also gave a big thumbs up to the new All Ireland championship structure this season, with Dublin and Westmeath the only senior teams in Leinster, under the old system Dublin would have had only the potential of playing four championship games this summer.

But the change to this seasons championship structure will give Dublin the chance to potentially if they reach the All Ireland final play six games which the players welcome.

Even before Dublin embark on the defence of their Leinster and All Ireland crowns the bookies have already installed the girls in blue as favorites to retain the Brendan Martin Cup.

But Noelle believes that this seasons championship is the most open ever and there are a number of teams capable of winning this years competition. She is excited about some of the tasty upcoming fixtures not just for Dublin but up and down the country.
