Isobel is a left-arm bowling all-rounder and has played for Ireland for almost two decades, receiving her first cap against India in England in 1999. Among the highlights of her career are winning the European Cup in England in 2003, winning the ICC WWT20 Qualifiers in Thailand and captaining Ireland at two World Cups.
