A 12-year-old boy is pummelling the heavy bag. Then we cut to him pounding the roads. Then it’s the pads. It is a tough regime for a kid but one he adheres to piously, such is the clear vision of his goal, revealed with a grin.

He is a good boxer, good enough to be an Ulster champion, but the discipline and fitness is what he likes most about it. It contributes to where the pre-pubescent Dylan Browne McMonagle wants to go. The vision is outside the ring and on a horse’s back.
