Supporting Women in Sport – InTheMarket.ie

In our years of watching Irish sport, the narrative of women’s achievements stands as a testament to resilience, determination, and the enduring spirit of athletic excellence. Here at InTheMarket.ie, we are in proud support of women’s participation and success in sports across Ireland. In this blog post, we will talk about some of our favourite moments in Women’s Sport to celebrate Women in Sport Week, from March 4th – March 8th.  


It is hard to forget the emergence of Sonia O’Sullivan, whose remarkable achievements on the track captured the nation’s imagination and inspired generations of aspiring athletes. Our favourite moment of hers was watching her winning Gold at the World Championships in 95.  

As a business deeply invested in promoting fitness and athleticism, we applaud O’Sullivan’s legendary career and her unwavering commitment to excellence. Sonia has since won 16 major athletics championship medals.  


In the realm of Gaelic games, Rena Buckley’s historic appointment as captain of Cork’s camogie and ladies’ football teams in 2012 marked a significant milestone for women in sports. She has also represented Munster in the Gael Linn Cup and Ireland at international rule. Buckley’s unparalleled success, coupled with her leadership both on and off the field, exemplifies the resilience and determination that define Irish sportswomen. 


 In recent years, trailblazers like Katie Taylor have further elevated the profile of women’s sports in Ireland, inspiring countless individuals to pursue their athletic dreams with passion and determination. Our favourite moments of Katie Taylor’s career were watching the monumental moment of her beating Amanda Serrano at Madison Square Garden and taking home the Olympic Gold Medal in 2012.  


Furthermore, the growing popularity of women’s rugby in Ireland is a testament to the increasing visibility and recognition of female athletes in traditionally male-dominated sports. We were thrilled to see the Ireland Squad named for The Guinness Women’s Six Nations. 

The Irish women’s rugby team’s historic victories and impressive performances serve as a source of inspiration for women and girls across the country, reaffirming our belief in the power of sport to unite and empower individuals. 

Here at InTheMarket.ie – we are invested in the promotion of fitness and athleticism; we wholeheartedly support the continued advancement of women in sports in Ireland. Through our dedication to providing top-quality gym equipment and fostering a supportive community of athletes, we aim to contribute to a future where all individuals, regardless of gender, have equal opportunities to thrive and succeed in the world of sports.
