Dublin Senior Ladies’ GAA stars Sinéad Goldrick, Niamh McEvoy, and Lauren Magee are having the time of their lives on moving to Australia.

The trio appear to be making memories together Down Under on a day trip to the Great Ocean Road area of Victoria. Covid-19 restrictions have been eased in Australia with just sixteen active cases currently in Victoria.

The footballers, who are currently living together in Melbourne, have documented their trip in a series of Instagram posts showing them relaxing on the beach and posing together on a promenade followed by a shopping excursion.

A summer road trip is just what the athletes need after helping to secure Dublin’s four-in-a-row feat at the All Ireland final just before Christmas.

After spending some time playing professionally for the Australian Football League in Melbourne, the coronavirus pandemic forced Sinéad Goldrick and Niamh McEvoy to fly home where they returned to the Dublin Senior Ladies’ team.

Dublin’s All Ireland win in December led to Malahide native Niamh’s fifth senior All Ireland medal, with her Dublin GAA boyfriend Dean Rock’s team also emerging victorious one day prior.

Now the All Ireland ladies’ champions are making their mark with the AFLW again after flying back to Australia in January. Niamh and Sinéad were joined by Lauren Magee, the third Dublin teammate to move to Melbourne.

After completing their two weeks isolation in a Brisbane hotel, the girls are now living together and making Australia their new home.

Lauren officially joined the Melbourne football team last month and while giving an interview for their official Instagram page, she said: “I decided to pursue AFLW as a personal challenge to learn a new game and its skills. I really respect the game and to train and play at a professional level is something I’m extremely grateful for.”

The 23-year-old shared: “I just want to develop as a player and obviously play at the highest standard I can for the team.”

The trio will play with Melbourne FC for the 2021 season.
