You can nearly count on one hand the number of women involved in a hands-on coaching capacity with a men’s team at inter-county level and that makes Áine Kinsella’s role as coach with the Wexford footballers all the more ground-breaking.

There have been a few outliers with the likes of Julie Davis (Armagh football) and Clíodhna O’Connor (Dublin hurling) – both strength and conditioning coaches – involved at the inter-county coalface in recent years along with Mags D’Arcy (Wexford hurling coach) but they are the exception rather than the rule.
