OLYMPIAN, HOCKEY WORLD CUP GOALKEEPER OF THE TOURNAMENT, WINNER OF FOUR ALL AMERICAN AWARDS 'It was down to Ayeisha now. If she saved the next penalty, Ireland, the tournament underdogs, would be in the final – for the first time ever.' Growing up in Larne in County Antrim, Ayeisha was fearless. If she wasn’t climbing trees, she was playing soccer,  Irish dancing or throwing the javelin. When Ayeisha discovered hockey, she was hooked!  The inspirational story of one of the best hockey goalkeepers in the world, who lost her mum at a young age, went into foster care, and found a home between the goal posts in the Senior Women’s Irish hockey team.



A great book.
