5 FAB Irish women to follow this International Women’s Day

The day would be over before we'd finished an article about all the amazing women we love to follow!


International Women’s Day is here and on the Emerald Isle there’s no shortage of amazing ladies to celebrate.

We’re all about supporting our sisters and celebrating their success. Goss itself boasts a female CEO, Editor and Deputy Editor, Ali Ryan, Kendra Becker and Fionnuala Moran respectively.

We can’t count the amount of women, across every sector in Irish society, that we look up to but for the day that’s in it here’s five fab women we love to follow!

Lynn Ruane

Lynn is as close to super woman as we’re getting! Smashing societal stereotypes and schooling us on our own privilege one tweet and talk at a time, Lynn is changing Ireland for the better. Her own story is too remarkable to do justice to in this piece but in summary she came from being a single teenage mother to the President of Trinity Student’s Union and is now an Independent Senator in Seanad Éireann.

Leanne Woodful

Leanne is one of the OG Irish bloggers and we love the way she speaks out about causes that mean a lot to her. This year she’s been promoting cruelty-free makeup and telling us how we can reduce our plastic consumption among other important causes. As if that wasn’t enough of a reason to follow her, she’s a serious style blogger too.

Louise McSharry

No one speaks more honestly about parenting than Louise McSharry! Her openness about the realities of having a tiny tot are seriously refreshing. The 2FM presenter (and now podcaster!) also shares slick new music, top makeup tips and has fab fashion sense.

Maeve Madden

Maeve Madden champions everything it means to be a woman, even the bits we’ve traditionally been too embarrassed to talk about. A PCOS sufferer, she doesn’t hold back sharing photos of her issues with bloating and all the other woes that can come with having a womb! Daily workouts and some serious outfit envy are other benefits to boot from giving her a follow.

Andrea Horan

Sorry @patrickquinnbyrne, we’re going to have to get married if you keep taking pics like this. ❤❤❤

The tour de force responsible for the most amazing talons in town, Andrea Horan, is a business owner and all round gas gal to follow. The Tropical Popical boss is all about escaping the economy of more, a topic she gives talks on, which is admirable in our crazy capitalist society. Outrageous outfits and outspoken words  on important issues can be expected when you follow this female.
