#ShowYourStripes


To celebrate International Women’s Day on 8th March, the Federation of Irish Sport 20x20 Team are asking everyone to #ShowYourStripes by pledging one action to support girls and women in sport in 2019.
By all doing something we can make a genuine shift across the country. We can give more sport to a nation of sport lovers, as well as the gift of sport to more girls.
To show your support post your action (big or small) online using #ShowYourStripes and #20x20.

Irish Sailing pledge to encourage women to "Take the Tiller and Own It" through the Irish Sailing Pathfinder Women at the Helm event in August. See our facebook for today's #ShowYourStripes competition.
