Vikki Wall will depart for Australia this Friday, just five days after helping the Meath ladies to retain the Brendan Martin Cup.

Victorious Vikki will leave the partying behind as she jets off to a new career with North Melbourne, and is due to make her Aussie Rules debut on August 13 against the Adelaide Crows and is looking forward to the challenge.

Speaking on RTE she revealed, “I’ve to say goodbye to a few people, fit a few people in,”

“I had my bags packed before Sunday’s game. They have a pre-season game on August 3, and then they’ve another one on the 13th against Adelaide, which I’m hoping to tog out for.

“It’s probably been the best thing to have beforehand, in a sense. I have been working with North Melbourne for the last while, doing a few bits and pieces.

“Both have been a nice distraction from each other. It’s nice to flick on a few of the Aussie Rules games to take your mind off GAA, and then if I’m getting too caught up in that, I put on some of the old Meath games to switch off.”
