To date, Amee Leigh has made 131 appearances for Ireland sevens, scoring 98 tries. She also plays club rugby for Railway Union.


In 2020, the new Opel ambassador returned to playing 15s rugby, as rugby sevens matches were on hold due to the COVID pandemic. Called up to the Ireland 15s team, for the 2021 Women’s Six Nations Championship, Amee Leigh’s strong performance against Italy helped Ireland to finish third overall.

As Opel brand ambassador, I’m very excited to see what our relationship holds for the future and I look forward to us making further announcements about a special Opel project in the very near future!”

Linda Djougang


Opel Ireland Brand Ambassador



Linda, who moved to Ireland from Cameroon at the tender young age of 9, grew up in Rush, County Dublin, and is a nursing graduate from Trinity College Dublin.


Her first taste of rugby came as a 17-year-old intern when, in a bid to meet new friends in her workplace, Linda put her name down to play tag rugby, having never played before; indeed, she had to Google “what is rugby?”. A happy accident, she quickly developed a passion for the sport, and her obvious talent was spotted by Wanderers FC, where she was invited to play, later moving to Old Belvedere. In 2018, Linda made her inter-provincial debut for Leinster, versus Ulster. She scored a try for Leinster against Harlequins in December 2019, in the first women’s club game to be played in Twickenham. In August 2021, the IRFU announced Linda’s move from Leinster Rugby to ASM Romagnat Rugby Feminin in France, where she gained huge experience. 


A former Trinity Sports Person of the Year winner, Linda and her XVs comrades, can look back on the recent Six Nations 2023 competition as a steep learning curve for the young team, with the first building blocks now laid for future campaigns.


Speaking at the presentation of her new Opel Mokka, at Gowan Auto’s new HQ, Linda said: “This is an absolute dream come true for me. I keep pinching myself. I am over the moon with my new Opel Mokka. It’s just so gorgeous. Huge thanks to Opel Ireland for giving me this incredible opportunity. I am so looking forward to working with Team Opel in my new role.”

Stacey, together with her comrades, looks back on the 2022 TikTok Women’s Six Nations campaign as a steep learning curve, a building block where they all saw glimpses of what the squad is capable of.


Speaking at the IRFU High Performance Centre, at the presentation of her new Opel Corsa-e, Stacey Flood said: “I am over the moon with my new Opel Corsa-e. It’s just so much fun. I don’t think I’ll ever drive a manual petrol or diesel again. The smoothness

Eric Donovan

Champion boxer Eric Donovan is inspiring the next generation since retiring from the professional game as EU Super Featherweight title holder in September 2022. Today, the Kildare native is passing on his knowledge to a new wave of talented fighters with dreams of making the Olympic Games.


Eric became a Blackstone Opel Dundalk and Cavan brand ambassador in September 2022.


“I linked up with Blackstone Opel as their brand ambassador in September 2022, just before the first episode of Ultimate Hell Week went out and a few weeks before my European title fight,” Donovan explained. “The link with Blackstone Opel has been a good omen for me. I take great pride in my role as brand ambassador for Blackstone Opel, which takes me all over the country. Driving the Opel Grandland provides the kind of comfort and security that’s invaluable when you have a young family.”"

The public have come to know and admire him for his honesty and resilience during a turbulent career. His decorated amateur days included five Irish senior titles and two European bronze medals. Then, at 28, he stepped out of the ring to concentrate on his education, which had been neglected during those formative years.


After three years away from the sport, he decided to pursue his true passion once more. His odds, turning pro at 31, were stacked against. Yet his belief never wavered. Over the next seven years, he won 16 of 18 fights, collecting Celtic and Irish Featherweight titles along the way. Then came his ultimate goal: European victory in September 2022 at the age of 37. With the right mindset and work ethic, dreams never die.


Through his role as lead boxing analyst with RTÉ, Eric has become a beloved figure among the sporting public. His strength and courage in getting to the final stage of Ultimate Hell Week last year won him a legion of loyal fans across the country.
