IRISH BOXING coach Billy Walsh, pictured, fought back tears of joy as he received his hometown's greatest honour -- the Freeman of Wexford.
Hundreds of people lined the streets for a parade through the town yesterday.
"I am overawed and overjoyed," Mr Walsh said, thanking his family for their support, despite having missed important family occasions because of his job.
