Caroline Currid BSc MSc (Biography)

Caroline has a number of clients across the broad spectrum of Irish sport but her achievements as a performance coach in the field of Gaelic Games have been ground-breaking. In 2008, she worked with All-Ireland football champions Tyrone. In 2009 and 2010, she was Performance coach with the Tipperary hurlers, assisting them to become All-Ireland champions for the first time in ten years. In 2011, she was an integral part of the Dublin footballers’ backroom team as they bridged a 16 year gap to win the All-Ireland title.

What some of the players who have worked with Caroline have publicly stated about her Performance coaching:

“I was listening to too many people and worrying too much about my opponent’s strengths. I now find myself playing with a greater freedom, that I focus more on my own game without over analysing it, which is where Caroline came in, helping me come up with some little buzzwords to keep myself loose.” – Kevin Nolan (Dublin) Man-of-the-match in the 2011 All-Ireland football final.

“In the past, I would have been wrecked with nerves before a big game. But this summer, I talked it through with Caroline and we worked it out. She just had a very simple and honest way of dealing with you. She’d hear you out and then between us we’d come up with the best way to approach it.” – Kevin McMenamin (Dublin) scorer of Dublin’s goal in the 2011 All-Ireland football final.

“Caroline Currid is like a sister, she’s so easy to talk to.” – Tipperary’s Lar Corbett, scorer of three goals in the 2010 All-Ireland hurling final.

“Before I’d have put too much pressure on myself taking frees. I’d be thinking ‘This HAS to go over’ Caroline taught me to relax and take a few deep breaths and think more ‘This IS going over'” – Tommy McGuigan (Tyrone), goalscorer in the 2008 All-Ireland final.
