There have been some amazing opportunities over the years for GAA players to travel down under and play in the Australian Football League.
For Tipperary star Aisling McCarthy not only did she get the opportunity but has also become the first Irishwoman to move Australian Football League Women’s clubs after completing a changeover to West Coast Eagles from Western Bulldogs.
Declan Pierce caught up with Aisling to hear about it all took place and how she feels about the change.
