The term “legend” tends to be overused but not in the case of 21 time All-Ireland winner Rena Buckley. She has won 7 camogie and 11 football All-Ireland football titles for Cork and 3 for her club Donoughmore!
Getting children inspired
It is a great honour to have Rena launch our #InspiringYou interview series where children from around the country are being given the opportunity to send questions to some of Ireland’s leading personalities.
Just ask Rena!
Have you ever wanted to ask sports legend Rena Buckley about her career, training, dealing with match day nerves, diet or her 21 All-Ireland Finals?
Chance to win
Now is you chance! We want parents/guardians to send us their children’s questions. Everyone who sends us a question will be in with a chance to win a Gaelic football!
Send your questions
You can send us your questions here or you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
School or Club
Include your child’s first name, school/club so Rena will be able to give them a mention if their question is selected. We will post Rena’s #InspiringYou video interview on our platform.
The deadline for sending us your questions is 8pm on April 7th. Time to get thinking and talking about what you would like “Rebel Rena” to answer!
The idea for #InspiringYou is for us to inspire each other and to help children dream of a brighter tomorrow. It would be great if the #InspiringYou interviews help start conversations about sport and possibilities in families around the country.
It’s good to talk
In 1937 the Irish government felt that children were too busy to talk to their family and neighbours! They made it part of their homework to write down family history, folklore, songs etc. Their work is now part of the amazing Duchas Project.
It is unusual that children have so much free time so maybe they use it effectively to learn about their local and family history? In these challenging times we can encourage our children to ring or write to elderly relatives and record stories that influenced their lives. Who knows they may have some great sporting moments to share with the next generation!
