JENNIFER Cuffe, the latest entrant into Fianna Fail's Battle of Blackrock, has revealed how she lost almost four stone and dropped three dress sizes in three months after training with Olympic boxing champion Katie Taylor's dad Pete.

Ms Cuffe - who is going up against former Minister Mary Hanafin and fellow councillors Cormac Devlin and Kate Feeney for the chance to run in the General Election in the Dun Laoghaire constituency - said she is a "food lover", but is also into personal fitness.

"Yeah, I began training with Pete in Bray and within three months I had lost almost four stone," she told the Sunday Independent.

Ms Cuffe went from being 14st 10lbs and a size 16 to 10st 12lbs and a size 10 between January and April of last year ahead of her successful council run.

The Cabinteely native said she no longer works out with Mr Taylor and trains in Sandymount most mornings on her way into work in the Law Library as a barrister.

Ms Cuffe was at the Fianna Fail Ard Fheis seeking election onto the party's Committee of 15.
