On Friday evening DUFC welcome Irish international and former Trinity student Ailis Egan to the Robert Emmet Theatre for a Questions & Answers session. Ailis will be accompanied by some of her teammates on the night, Sophie Spence and Jenny Murphy, whose achievements are equally as impressive as hers. Since her days at Trinity, Egan has received 41 Ireland caps and was a part of the first ever Women’s Barbarians side. She has had many highlights in the green jersey including her role in the 2013 Grand Slam and the recent Women’s Rugby World Cup here in Ireland.
Members of DUFC’s men’s and women’s teams will be talking to Ailis about her fantastic career and her time at Trinity. The event takes place on Friday 5th December at 8pm in the Robert Emmet Theatre in the Arts Building. It promises to be an unmissable night with plenty of insight to be gained into the life of an international athlete who has to balance sport with a working life.
