Masters Squash gives a new love of sport

On her way to victory in a Masters Squash tournament in Malta, Orla O’Doherty spotted her childhood coach standing with Irish fans.

“You’re still playing,” he said, “and you’re smiling. I’d never have expected that.”

Telling the story now, she shrugs and says he has a point. At 48 she is playing the best squash of her career, but more than that she has found a love of the game that escaped her as a teen.

This story ran in The Irish Times, and can be read online.
