Aileen Gilroy

Height
172cm
DOB
01 March 1993

A former Gaelic footballer with County Mayo and junior international soccer player with Ireland, Aileen Gilroy’s natural sporting ability has lent itself well to picking up AFLW football, with the Irishwoman a quality defensive presence in North’s backline.

Strong in the contest and clean at ground level, Gilroy’s powerful kicking off both feet is a luxury asset few teams possess, and her line-breaking speed often opens up the wing for her teammates. Following her debut 2020 with a much improved 2021, she’s quickly made herself a mainstay of the Kangaroos’ defence.
