Local Sportswear Brand Opens New Premises In Carrigaline

Local Sportswear Brand Opens New Premises In Carrigaline Business Park

Queen B Athletics, local Carrigaline sportswear company founded by sisters Brid Ryan and Aedin Corbyn is making national news for sponsoring the Ireland Womens Hockey Team. We popped down to see Brid in the brand new Queen B HQ in Kilnaglery Business Park for a chat and to hear all about this fantastic local business. 

The company first started in 2012 has been designing and manufacturing sportswear for women all over Ireland and the UK and is thrilled to be an official partner with Hockey Ireland. “It is really a dream come true” says Brid “We have been following the Irish hockey team for years and to be asked to be involved as an official partner is an incredible step for our business!”. The Ireland Womens Hockey team recently made history by qualifying for the Olympics in Dublin against Canada “It was a nail biting and thrilling match, we were screaming so much we had no voices left the next day!” says Brid.

Queen B Athletics started as a rowing brand “It made sense for us as rowing was the first sport I was obsessed with, I knew we could develop amazing designs for women in the sport. Then running, gym, GAA and hockey found us and we have gone from strength to strength with more people discovering that our small Irish business offers the highest quality kit.”

With famous fans like Sonia O Sullivan, Anna Geary, Briege Corkery, Gemma O’ Connor, Sanita Puspure, Lizzie Lee, Oxford and Cambridge Universities and now the Irish women’s hockey team Queen B is has already proved itself as the athletes choice for women’s sportswear. Now they want every woman in Ireland to own some Queen B, “It doesn’t matter if you are training for an Olympics or your first 5km our products are designed with you in mind”.  Offering both stock items in a range of gorgeous colours and the option to customise any piece of their kit for team wear, Queen B Athletics is fast becoming a favourite for teams all over the country. “As a women’s sportswear brand we feel especially passionate about our sportsbras and believe they should be seen as kit rather than underwear. They are essential for a female athlete and we are the first to customise them and make them part of your teamwear.” says Brid.

Both Brid and Aedin are keen to spread the word having recently opened their new premises. “We love people popping in to see us, we can extoll the virtues of our products all day but nothing quite beats putting the kit on, it explains how great it is better than we ever could. We are also on hand to help with sizing suggestions and we love to help!”.  You can also buy Queen B Athletics online on their website and Brid is keen to point out that you can email or DM anytime for advice “At this time of year people are often buying as a present and we are ready and willing to offer advice and make the process as easy as possible”.
