New role: Beth Healy is the Covid-19 officer at Stormont

When Beth Healy was appointed Team Operations Manager to the Ireland Women's cricket side in May of last year, she could not have envisaged the role she is currently occupying.

Healy, who was the Northern Ireland Team Manager at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in 2018, is the Covid-19 officer at Stormont for the contracted Ireland players who resumed training last week.

With no cricket action until the end of next month at the earliest, Belfast-based Healy has the task of making sure everything at the training camp is wiped down and ready for use by the five NCU players in the international set-up (Shane Getkate is living and training in Dublin).
