Rank #1: Series 2 Ep. 3 Brid Stack
Be brave enough to be poor at something new”, she says. This woman has talent coming out of her ears. But she validates that talent with sheer hard work and grit throughout her entire sporting career.
Cork’s Brid Stack is venturing to Australia to join @gwsgiants for the next AFLW season. Having 11 all Ireland titles and 7 all stars, this bubbly lady is moving herself and her family to Oz to tackle a new sport, and she is taking it by the reigns.
We all know her sporting career, but I got to know the lovely and hilarious personality that is Brid during this giggle-filled interview. She practises what she preaches.
We discuss teenage years, meeting her now husband in college, the importance of sport for socialising and life long friends, and ofcourse - becoming a mammy!
Far more to this lassie than the jersey
