Sligo Ladies Rugby Calendar in aid of the N.W.Hospice

Sligo Ladies Rugby Team Calendar
Calendar for North West Hospice

The secret is out of the bag!!

The background

It all started when Niamh Connolly called me one day to see if I’d be interested in meeting her and some of her team mates to chat about their idea to do a calendar in aid of the North West Hospice. It was a personal mission for the girls. One of their team mates had a cancer scare earlier in the year and her friends felt unable to help her at the time (thankfully everything had turned out ok for her). The local lads team had done a calendar for the Sligo Cancer Support Centre a few years previously and the girls thought they could go one better! I met with Niamh who plays a flanker on the team and Marian, their Momager. Together we talked about the type of image the girls wanted to portray, looked at a few images I had made previously & tossed about a few ideas.

A few weeks later we arranged for all the girls to come into the studio over a weekend to shoot.
