Camogie

Morning Coffee Break With Sarah Healy

The Monday Coffee Break was never supposed to be player interviews, it was to round up all the camogie action from the weekend in a bite size format. Today is our fifteenth player interview version, it’s crazy to think it’s that long since we saw any action.

Thankfully that’s all about to change and we should have a fixture plan from the camogie association this week. So today is the last of the player interviews before we start back with the match reviews in July. And we have saved one of the best for last. Winner of the public vote to fill the goalkeeper spot, this week’s guest is not only the All-Star goalie but a prolific forward in the club championship. Grab a coffee, kick back and enjoy five minutes with St. Thomas’ and Galway star Sarah Healy.

Most likely to hang you out to dry on social media on the sesh: Aoife again! Never puts the phone down!

Carpool karaoke on the way to training, which song and who would you choose to belt it out with: I’d bring Heather Cooney coz I wouldn’t even get to training without her!
