Thanks to all who have posted messages of support on this website and on Instagram. I would like to especially thank Dominique and family from Switzerland- thank you so much for your trust and encouragement, and Rickey from the US who has travelled the world to cheer for me at three World Championships and the Winter Olympic Games- awesome.

Back from the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang it is already time to think about the next season.
A complete season of racing at an international level is very costly and I am running on a very tight budget.
Would you help? Please contact me via the website contact form for more information.
Several really nice articles have come out in the press this week on Team Ireland's Winter Olympic journey. Very appreciated coverage for Alpine skiing in Ireland!
As my teammate Pat McMillan says: "The future looks bright for Irish skiing":
After my slalom race was also postponed on Wednesday due to high winds on the course my first Olympic race was the GS Thursday. I was very nervous on the first run but happy with my second run on a daunting course, knocking 4 seconds off the time of my first run to finish in 50th place. Officially an Olympian! What could be better than that? Tomorrow the slalom! Éirinn go Brách!
Well winter is certainly here! With temperatures as low as -19°C it is pretty cool up in Yongpyong but keeping warm with the hand warmers kindly provided by Olympic village aids. I am training in Giant slalom on the same course as Mikaela Shiffrin... just a little slower!
Still feels unreal to be here with all these outstanding athletes!
