Ashling Thompson

Ashling Thompson Profile

I am writing this on a person I interviewed earlier this year , that person is Cork Camogie Captain Ashling Thompson. She plays her club camogie with Milford. She of course is now known for more than just playing camogie. Earlier this year she opened up about her battle with depression and how losing a close friend affected her.

Ashling will this weekend line up as captain of Cork against Galway at Croke Park as Cork look to make it 2 All Ireland’s in a row. Ashling is an incredible person and is full of confidence. She plays with her heart on her sleeve.
