Stephanie Roche teams up with Ireland's top news site


The ink on her two-year contract with Houston Dash has yet to dry but Stephanie Roche has penned her second big deal of the year as she joins Independent.ie.

The Puskas Goal of the Year runner-up has teamed up with Ireland's biggest news website to bring you the latest from the world of sport, style and fashion.

Roche (25) has become a prominent public figure since she attended the Ballon d'Or awards and finished second to James Rodriguez in the Puskas Award by just 9pc of the vote.

She will fly to Texas next month to begin her career with Houston Dash in the top league in America. You can keep up to date with her progress on Independent.ie.

"We are delighted to have Stephanie on board. She represented herself with dignity and class while she was in the world spotlight recently," said Independent.ie Sports Editor Ger Keville.
