A Kerry native, Sharon became a well known administrator in ladies football, particularly in her adopted Cork, initially with the North Cork Board before assuming Secretary, Development Officer and PRO positions at County Board during the halcyon days of success on Leeside.

Her husband Michael John is a highly regarded referee, his team of officials included Sharon and family members at games in Duhallow, Cork and beyond.

Fittingly, Sharon 's will be remembered in a fitting memorial sevens tournament that will bring ladies and mens teams to Dromtarriffe for exciting fare with proceeds in aid of Marymount Hospice.
