Cora Staunton : Great Irish Sports Stars Paperback / softback
by EIMEAR RYAN
Part of the Sports Heroes series
Cora Staunton is an elite sportswoman: winner of four All-Irelands, 11 All-Stars and five Club All-Irelands.
She is a trailblazer in the Australian Football League, and a hero in her native Mayo for her gaelic football skills.
But it's been a long and eventful road for Cora. When she was young, she was small for her age, and had to prove herself at every level: to the boys in her club, to the Mayo selectors who took a chance on her as a teenager, but most importantly to herself.
From Croke Park to the stadiums of Sydney, Cora has proved herself to be a master of the game. This is the story of how a young football-mad girl became a living legend.
A story of female empowerment for younger readers.
