Herron talks about new Athlete Mentor role

Donegal’s Katy Herron is relishing the challenges that lie ahead in her new role as an Athlete Mentor. The new initiative is run by the Youth Sport Trust. Due to their partnership with Lidl and the supermarket chain’s partnership with the the LGFA, Herron got the opportunity to become involved with the programme that aims to reduce the drop-off rate in sport participation.

Katy spoke about her new role on this week’s Sportsgirls Podcast. She said: “It’s run through the Youth Sport Trust in collaboration with Lidl and the LGFA. It’s a programme that is going to be rolled out in schools and post primary schools in September where inter-county players go in and deliver a programme, focussed on girls and increasing the girls participation in sport. It’s linked with the #serioussupport campaign.”

Katy is looking forward to getting involved in the programme. She was quick to praise Lidl and how their support has been a huge help to the LGFA: “I was delighted. It seems like a brilliant initiative. It just shows the support Lidl are having in Ladies Football and the impact they’re having and the progress and increasing that participation in girls is obviously a massive factor. They’ve done massive work so far. I’d say this will be a huge success as well.”
