“The best thing sport has given me is my friends”: CORA STAUNTON

Cora Staunton has won All-Irelands with club and county as well as All-Stars but she revealed on this week’s SportsGirls Podcast that the best thing the sport has given her, is her friends.

The Carnacon and Mayo star said:

“Sport has given me, the best things about it; my friends and what I got from that is them. They are there now, they’ll be there in five years time when I won’t be playing sport. We’ve had massive memories all throughout the years.”

Staunton admitted she has friends from various ages:

“I’m best friends with girls who are 21/22 and they are 13 years younger than me. Girls obviously my own age as well. There’s no difference between us. That’s really what sport brings; treat each other the same no matter what age we are.”

For Staunton age is just a number when they are on the football pitch.  No matter what the age the players are treated as equals:

“ We are treated as equals. We all go out on the pitch as equals. It’s great to see that. I love to see young girls like that coming through because that was me at one stage.”
