Amee Leigh Murphy Crowe


Opel Ireland Brand Ambassador


An Irish rugby sevens and rugby union player from Tipperary, winger Amee Leigh Murphy Crowe began her illustrious rugby career aged 15 in her local club Clanwilliam. She was selected for the Munster Senior 15s side aged 18, was quickly identified as a talent and invited to play with the Ireland Women’s Sevens.


Amee Leigh won deserved fame as the first northern-hemisphere player to win the top try scorer on the 2018 / 2019 World Sevens Series circuit, scoring 35 tries for Ireland and named in the tournament’s Dream Team. 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.


Speaking at Aviva Stadium, at the presentation of her new Opel Mokka, Amee Leigh Murphy Crowe said: “I feel honoured and privileged to become part of the Opel Ireland team. 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!”


She continued: “The minute I set eyes on the Opel Mokka I fell in love. The bold and stylish touch it has is amazing! It really is a pinch-me moment in my life being given this opportunity!”


Aoife Dalton

Irish Rugby star, Aoife Dalton, was appointed an Opel brand ambassador at Main Opel Dealer, Tullamore Opel, and presented with a new Opel Corsa in March 2023. A proud sponsor of Irish Rugby and the official car partner to the IRFU, Opel Ireland warmly welcomes Aoife to her new ambassador role at the Main Opel Dealer. 


Aoife, who hails from Clara, started playing rugby at Tullamore RFC when she was 15, straying somewhat from her family’s love of GAA; Aoife’s father, Tony, was a football star for Clara; her brother, Marcus, played for Offaly; Aoife’s mother’s family, the Morrisons, are heavily involved in GAA too.  


The gifted centre-back, ever since her debut at Tullamore RFC, demonstrated a clear talent that propelled her swiftly from club, to provincial, to international rankings. Aoife made her senior debut for Leinster in January 2023 and in the space of just five months, she was called up to the elite senior level in the national XVs women’s team. Crowned Leinster Women’s Young Player of the Year 2023, Aoife was also shortlisted for the 2023 Guinness Rugby Writers’ Player of the Year. Today, Aoife plays for Old Belvedere RFC, Leinster, and further boasts 10 caps for Ireland. She has been named in the Ireland Women’s Six Nations 2024 squad.


Speaking at the presentation of her new Opel Corsa, at Gowan Auto in Citywest, Dublin, Aoife said: “I am delighted to be given this opportunity to be an Opel ambassador and I am thrilled with my new Opel Corsa. Huge thanks to John Malone, Sales Manager at Tullamore Opel for his support. I am so looking forward to working with Team Opel in my new role.”


Aoife joins her Six Nations teammates, Linda Djougang and Beibhinn Parsons, together with her 7s rugby comrades, Amee Leigh Murphy Crowe and Stacey Flood, as an Opel brand ambassador.


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 Flood


Opel Ireland Brand Ambassador


From Rathmines, Dublin, and the youngest of six children, Stacey holds a degree in technology management from the National College of Ireland. A renowned sportswoman, Stacey played soccer with Cambridge Girls and ladies gaelic football for


Clanna Gael Fontenoy GAA and her county Dublin, up to under-18 level, before she joined her beloved Railway Union club in 2014. Stacey quickly discovered a passion for rugby through the Ireland Women's Sevens pathway.


The left-footed place-kicker first played for the Irish U18 Sevens side in 2014 and was quickly contracted to Ireland's Sevens programme in 2015, aged 18. She made her international senior Sevens debut, in Kazan in 2015 and since then has played at every stage of the World Rugby Sevens Series. In May 2018 she was selected on the Dream Team at the Canadian leg of the World Rugby Sevens Series, and she made her mark as a key player in Ireland’s bid to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics in 2019.Flood was among five of Ireland's Sevens players called in to the national XVs squad in October 2020 and in the 2021 Women's Six Nations she made her Ireland debut against Wales. 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


and power from the car are ridiculous. As a new zero-emissions driver, I have learned very quickly just how simple EV motoring is. 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.”


Beibhinn Parsons

Irish Rugby star, Beibhinn Parsons, has been appointed an Opel Brand Ambassador at Bill Sheehan and Sons, Terenure, and presented with a new Opel Corsa Electric. A proud sponsor of Irish Rugby and the official car partner to the IRFU, Opel Ireland warmly welcomes Beibhinn to her new role at the Main Opel Dealer. Beibhinn joins Amee Leigh Murphy Crowe, Stacey Flood, and Linda Djougang, as an Opel Brand Ambassador.


The Ballinasloe lass played GAA as a youngster before rugby became her passion, in a move that saw her playing winger for Blackrock College RFC and representing Connacht. Now with 21 caps for her country, winger Beibhinn first made history as Ireland’s youngest-ever rugby debutante in 2018 when aged just 16, she made her senior international debut, initially in 15s rugby, then making headlines with the 7s team. Known fondly amongst rugby circles as the Irish Flyer, she clinched the 2020 Guinness Rugby Writers of Ireland Player of the Year award and was also nominated for the RTE Young Sportsperson of the Year accolade in 2021.


Speaking at the presentation of her new Opel Corsa Electric, at Bill Sheehan and Sons, Terenure, Beibhinn said: “I am over the moon with my new Opel Corsa Electric. It’s just so gorgeous and I love driving a pure electric car. It’s just so easy; I am truly converted! Huge thanks to Bill Sheehan and Sons Opel for giving me this incredible opportunity. I am so looking forward to working with Team Opel in my new role.”
