Siobhan began her sporting career playing Gaelic Football from an early age and represented Kerry over three seasons.
It wasn't until 2007 at the age of 27 that Siobhan took up rugby at Tralee RFC and quickly advanced to the Munster representative side in season 2010/11.
That year she was honoured the first of her two Munster Women's Player of the Year awards and it was no surprise when she was soon called up to the Ireland squad claiming the first of her fifteen caps away to France in 2012.
Siobhán was part of last season's Grand Slam winning Irish team, and started in all 5 of Ireland's Six Nations games this year.
With her impressive performances throughout the season Siobhán has booked a back row place in the Ireland squad for the Women's Rugby World Cup and joins fellow Munster players Niamh Briggs, Gillian Bourke, Heather O'Brien, Fiona Hayes, Laura Guest and Niamh Kavanagh.
