Aisling McCarthy signs for Western Bulldogs

Congratulations are in order for Rockwellian Aisling McCarthy, who recently signed for AFLW team Western Bulldogs. We look forward to seeing great things from Aisling as she makes her way through the Australian league, and we wish her all the best in her future sporting endeavours!

From the Irish Examiner:

"McCarthy was selected at 23 in the draft and will depart soon for pre-season training, missing out much of the National League for the Premier County but back in plenty of time for the Championship.

The 21-year-old Cahir player is following the path laid by trailblazer and Mayo legend Cora Staunton, who prospered for Greater Western Sydney last year.

She was one of 11 Irish players – mostly footballers but also including fellow Tipp woman, the camogie star Mary Ryan and Ireland rugby international Mairéad Coyne - invited to participate in the CrossCoders programmed and trial for clubs last month."
