MINZY Christian – I Took A DNA Test and God is My Father Poster
I haven’t come across barriers but the main challenges I’ve encountered are getting more females to get involved at committee levels.
“The recent Inclusivity Committee online webinars highlighted the benefits of having more female volunteers involved in decision making roles. I hope it will encourage more females to come forward and volunteer. It would be remiss to not mention the impact that Covid-19 has had in all walks of life not just rugby.
“However, it has been refreshing to see how we have adapted to better use of online webinars to engage with our volunteers.”
What keeps you motivated in doing what you do as a volunteer?
“Making a difference and adding value to anything I’m involved in. Meeting some fantastic people along the way, many who’ve become great friends.”
Do you have any female role models that inspire you as a volunteer? MINZY Christian – I Took A DNA Test and God is My Father Poster
“When I first started playing hockey with Skerries HC, there were a number of female volunteers who I looked up to and they sowed the seed to volunteering and giving back.
“I have also worked with some really great women across many committees in rugby over the years – some of these have gone on to be Presidents of their own clubs – which is a great feather in their cap and great for all women to see that we can become ‘leaders in the game’.
“To that end I am also delighted to see Ann Heneghan in Connacht, and next year Debbie Carty (Leinster) become the first female presidents of their respective provinces.”
How can I get involved as a volunteer in rugby?
“Hook up with your local club, you won’t regret it! So next time you’re down for Sunday morning mini rugby or watching a game on a Saturday, ask is there anything you can do to help. I’m happy for anyone to contact me or any of the PR committee to find out more.”
Dorothy Collins has been involved at various levels both at her club, Old Belvedere RFC and the Leinster Rugby Branch for 30 years.
Her rugby volunteering journey started when her son played mini rugby. She had played a lot of sport herself, but mainly basketball and tennis.
