Being a role model to young people is an honour and a responsibility says camogie player Anna Geary. 

"Growing up I always had loads of role models - male and female - so, I suppose, I do consider myself very honoured to be in a position to be a role model for younger people,"she said.

The Cork woman has lead an impressive sporting career which has seen her lift the All-Ireland Cup as Cork captain in 2014 and become the reigning champion of Ireland's Fittest Family in 2016However, with great success comes great responsibility.

"I have to be very aware of the message I'm putting out there and how I come across because younger people will always emulate those who they look up to and from a sports point of view, I feel very fortunate. I've had some great role models."

"I think, for me, it's about being very honest, being very responsible and being really positive about your outlook in life because I'm very fortunate to be in the position that I am, being successful in sport and thankfully, I have a career that I really enjoy and it's to not take it for granted and be thankful for what I have.

"If younger people see that in those that are on social media then they're most likely to follow suit  as well so I would always try and say 'be kind to others, it doesn't cost anything and it will make you feel better about yourself and will always come back on the double to you."
