“The Boxing Ring is like a Temple of Truth”

“The boxing ring is like a temple of truth,” says coach Conor Dennedy in our latest sports club profile, in which we visit Claremorris Boxing Club, “You’ll get found out out there.”

“It’s a different level of fitness… A lot of lads that come in here from football, they think they’re fit until they come in – and then they get a shock.”

In this edition we also hear from head coach Joe Charles about the history of the club, which started in 1961 in the Hollybrook ice-cream factory. And that’s not even the strangest place it has called home over the years!
