Anna O’Flanagan grew up in Rathgar, Dublin. She always loved being outside playing sport and played anything and everything she possibly could. She started hockey at the age of 10 and absolutely loved it.
It was when she went to secondary school at Muckross Park College that she really focused on hockey and left other sports behind her. She represented Leinster and Ireland throughout school and got her first cap for the Irish Senior Women’s Team in 2010.
She was a member of the team who reached the World Cup Final in 2018 and won a silver medal and qualified for Tokyo Olympic Games in front of a record audience in Dublin in November 2019.
