Dublin Ladies GAA player and Trinity Alumna Nicole Owens was today announced as a brand ambassador for Trinity Sport to recognise her achievements as part of the three times Ladies Football All-Ireland Senior Champions Team. Nicole Owens will join fellow Trinity Alumni on the Trinity Sport ambassador programme including Mark Pollock (motivational speaker and adventurer), Ailish Egan (former Irish Rugby international), Ed Joyce (Head coach of Ireland’s women’s cricket team) and Hugo MacNeill (former British and Irish Lions Rugby Union international).
Speaking at the brand ambassador launch, Michelle Tanner, Head of Sport and Recreation at Trinity Sport said, “We are delighted to welcome Nicole Owens to the Trinity Sport brand ambassador programme. As a Trinity student Nicole was part of the team that won the Giles cup in 2015, since then she has gone on to claim three consecutive All Ireland titles with Dublin Senior Ladies GAA team. Nicole has also become a strong advocate for mental health, women in sport and the LGBTQ community. Trinity Sport would like to recognise Nicole’s achievements and provide the opportunity for students and the institution to learn and collaborate on sport for the future.”
Nicole Owens commented, “I have many great memories from my time at Trinity College Dublin, especially from my Trinity GAA playing days when we won the Giles Cup in fourth year. The team were brilliant that year – we had Davy Burke over us, who was the assistant manager with Dublin at the time. I have always had a connection to Trinity as both my parents graduated from here as well, it is a great honour to be back as a brand ambassador for Trinity Sport.”
Nicole Owens will join fellow Trinity Alumni including Mark Pollock, Ailish Egan, Ed Joyce, and Hugo MacNeill on the Trinity Sport ambassador programme for 2019 / 2020.
