Kerry is a county whose sporting sons are revered and celebrated, their stories spoken of and their names etched forever in local folklore. But what about the daughters of the county, the women whose sporting achievements matched and in cases exceeded their male counterparts. Their names are less known, their stories even more so!

Joe McGill and Connie Broderick have produced a series called Kerry Women in Sport, where we travel the length and breadth of the county to meet a variety of women celebrating their stories as Kerry’s influential women in sport.

Every week over the next 10 weeks on Radio Kerry Sunday sport and Terrace Talk we are going to hear an episode from the 20 part series.


In this episode we hear the story of Olympian rower Monika Dukarska from Killorglin Rowing Club. Monika is from Killorglin by way of Poznan, Poland. As well as being an Olympian she is a two time World Coastal Champion in the women’s solo, winning in 2009 and 2016. Among her many achievements Monika also won Silver at the Rowing World Cup II in the women’s pair. Here is Kerry women in sport with Monika Dukarska.
