Orla Walsh

Orla was not a sporty person growing up, and as an adult never even owned a gym membership. All that changed in 2015 when she borrowed her father’s old road bike to commute to college in Dublin and was hooked. She swapped cigarettes and all-night partying for three-hour rides and weekend racing.

Two years later her results earned Orla a chance to attend national camps, which then saw her earn a place among the nation’s best. Despite injury and a very steep learning curve, Orla is still improving and on track to represent her country at an Olympic Games.
