Munster and Highfield Women's Captain Heather, from Churchtown in North Cork, played on the Irish Rugby Team in the recent World Cup,
scoring a try against the All-Blacks. In fact, she was also the first Corkwoman, to play against the All-Blacks.
Heather O'Brien was also part of last year's Grand-Slam winning Irish team. She works as a Physiotherapist in Mallow.
"I hope the Irish women's rugby team's recent high-profile successes will attract more girls and women to this great sport. Our best ever finish
of fourth place in the World Cup was a great showpiece for women’s rugby" said Heather O'Brien.
