OUR AMBASSADORS Meet the biggest supports of the Tackle Your Feelings campaign.
Eimear was born in Kilmihil, Co. Clare and works as a teacher. Eimear made her debut for Munster in December 2016.
Kilmihil’s Considine has also lined out for the Irish Sevens that missed out on qualification for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
A former dual player for the Clare camogie and ladies football teams, Eimear has only been playing rugby for over a year now. She’s made her mark on the sport and is also lining out with UL Bohemians who have eleven representatives included in the matchday twenty-three.
Eimear is one of our most involved school ambassadors for TYF and is working to encourage people to look after themselves and take control of their mental health.
A student of Bangor Grammar School, McCloskey made his breakthrough to the Ulster senior setup in the 2013/14 season. A powerful ball carrier, McCloskey is mainly deployed at inside centre and has always been considered as a huge talent in Irish Rugby. Known for his physical stature and powerful running, he had spells at scrum half and out-half during his schools career before gaining the size in his late teens that marked him out as a big ball-carrying centre. After a great start to the season in the 15/16 campaign, McCloskey was chosen in Ireland's 6 Nations squad in 2016. He won his solitary Irish cap in the 2016 Six Nations Championship playing in midfield against England. In May 2016, Stuart signed a contract extension with Ulster until 2019. Stuart was selected in the Ireland squad for the opening two rounds of the 6 Nations. Stuart is now helping TYF to launch the school app and help promote awareness around mental wellbeing.
Meet some of our app ambassadors.
