Rosie Foley: Rugby, Swimming & Living Life to the Full

Rosie Foley has thirty-nine International Rugby Caps for Ireland, she played in two rugby world cups and was the captain of Munster & UL ladies rugby teams winning interprovincial titles & All Ireland titles with both teams, she has also represented Ireland at tag rugby. Rosie's sporting CV is exceptional both on the rugby pitch and in the open water, her belief that you should live your life to the full and simply do your best today is very evident in our conversation in this episode. 

The rugby star turned endurance swimmer in recent years was the first person to swim in swimming togs the 38km of Lough Derg solo in 2014 before going on to swim the 21 miles across the English Channel solo from England to France, also in swimming togs. 

She swam the Straits of Gibraltar in swimming togs in September of last year, was inducted into the UL Sports Hall of Fame in 2018 and was recently awarded the ILDSA Paraic Casey Munster Swimmer of the Year 2019 sponsored by John Edwards at Wild Water Adventures Tralee. 

This episode of the show is filled with positivity and inspiration, if also tinged with a little bit of sadness, but it is jam-packed with inspiration, practical positivity and a few hearty laughs along the way.
