One of the most accomplished ladies Gaelic footballers has become the latest Irish recruit to an AFLW club.

Bríd Stack, an 11-time All-Ireland winner with Cork, who retired from the game in early 2019, is to join Cora Staunton at Great Western Sydney Giants.

The 34-year-old will move to Australia with her family to a club where Donegal's Yvonne Bonner is also on board. Stack's signing by GWS Giants further strengthens the growing links between the AFLW and LGFA players.

AFLW coach Alan McConnell welcomed the arrival of Stack at an announcement this morning.

"After three years of interest on our part, it's really exciting to have Bríd Stack finally make the decision to come to Australia and be part of our list," said McConnell.

"Bríd is a key defender with great speed, good agility, is very competitive and has a long history of having high-level success in women's football in Ireland."
