Claire Walsh

Claire Walsh is a bestselling author and Tedx speaker known for her honesty, authenticity and vulnerability.

The first woman to represent Ireland in the freediving world championships, Claire’s debut book Under Water was shortlisted for An Post Sports Book of the Year award. More than just an insight into one of the most dangerous sports in the world, It is a captivating and emotional account of how the freediving helped her find freedom.

As a speaker Claire offers a peek behind the curtain of her achievements; the ever present fear, the derailing self-doubt, the gauntlet of emotions…and how she finds a way to do it anyway.

Passionate about saying it like it is and calling out the many ways we get in our own way, Claire’s talks remind audiences that a little bit of bravery (and a lot of vulnerability) can go a long way to making an ordinary life extraordinary.
