Jenny has been working with the FAI since 2006 and is Team Physiotherapist for the Irish Women's National Team. She has travelled extensively with squads for European competition and World Cup Qualifiers. In the past 18 months alone, she has travelled with the WNT to the USA on two occasions, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, Montenegro, Finland and Wales. The team unfortunately failed to qualify for the Women's Euros in 2017 and await the World Cup qualifying draw later this year.
Jenny was a regular contributor to the Mooney Show on RTE Radio 1 from 2008 until the show changed it's format. During that time she discussed many physiotherapy issues live on air, answered callers into the show, went out with their roving reporters talking to taxi-drivers about their aches, and even hosted an entire show on Low Back pain.
One of the highlights of her time on the show was leading a team of women to complete the Women's mini-marathon and came over the finish line while on the phone to Derek live on the air! In 2011 Jenny was delighted to feature on the Mooney Mobile App - offering safe pilates exercise information for mums to be. This is still available to download for free through the media section of the Mooney app, or you can view it below.
