My Story

Valerie Sheehy MyPoncho

My name is Valerie Sheehy, I am a Tipperary woman and the proud founder of

I left home in Ballyporeen at 17 and moved to Clonmel where I worked and studied for 6 years.

Like many others before me, I moved to London and spent 9 years working in Administration and Sales in the construction industry. I then moved to Bournemouth and worked for Barclays Bank Plc for 3 years. They announced redundancies so I decided to leave and work for myself. I worked as a Free Lance Personal Assistant for 2 years before returning home to Ireland. I have spent the last 4 years in Finance and Sales.

I was looking to set up a business and the idea of county ponchos at matches came to me.

I approached the GAA with a prototype and the concept and they granted me a license in October 2012 and the rest as they say is history….
