Knockout showpiece

TOMORROW St Brigid's GAA and Coolmine RFC stage a unique Dublin 15 White Collar Boxing event.

Dublin 15 gets ready to rumble at St Brigid's GAA club, old Navan Road, Castleknock as 15 amateur boxers from each club have completed an arduous training programme at the National Boxing Stadium over the past six weeks. With the adrenaline pumping and the competitors at the peak of fitness we now look forward to a great event and may the best club win.

This first encounter, of what is intended to be an annual fundraising and social event for these highly regarded voluntary sports clubs, promises to be the event of the year in the Dublin 15 calendar. Participants and spectators alike are guaranteed a knockout action-packed night of excitement and entertainment when local heroes from both clubs take to the ring.

The boxing event will consist of 15 bouts with each boxer paired with an opponent of equal strength and agility. Famous names from the Irish amateur and professional boxing associations will also be in attendance.

Spectators, who purchase tickets at €20, will not only enjoy a night of nail-biting action and good-humoured club rivalry, but will also be supporting the ongoing development of sporting activities in Dublin 15. A very small number of tickets are still available, call Michelle at 087-2250375 or Eamonn at 086-6026074.
