Mary-Kate Slattery | #OWNIT
It’s Our Time, Own It, aims to shine a light on Irish women and women in sport. To inspire, motivate and encourage women to take centre stage and recognise their potential.
Intersport Elverys have teamed up with top Irish athletes to get an insight into how their hard work and sacrifice translates to their respective sports. This is brought to life through a series with talents like boxer Mary-Kate Slattery.
Mary-Kate is an upcoming Irish amateur boxer who is continuing to make her strides in the game. Outside the ring, Mary Kate is studying to be a lawyer, with the hopes of becoming a pro boxer and a barrister which would be a first for the Irish.
Mary Kate is a fitness advocate often running marathons and other endurance challenges when she isn’t in the gym.The young athlete has a promising boxing journey ahead of her but at a young age faced her biggest battle to date. At the age of nine years old she was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa and has fearlessly overcome her battle with boxing, fitness and her studies in law attributing to her recovery.
Her recovery, mentality and fight is an inspiration to athletes and people in general across Ireland. We will be sure to follow her career closely and are looking forward to seeing her #OwnIt inside and outside of the ring!
