New boxing club to be unveiled this week

Olympic Gold medal winner Katie Taylor and fellow Olympic boxer Garda Adam Nolan will officially open the revamped Bray Boxing Club at 3pm on January 28, 2014.
Bray Town Council will host a Civic Reception to mark the reopening of the €250,000 state-of-the-art facility.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny famously paid a visit to Bray Boxing Gym in May 2012 and, at the time, boxers were training without toilet or shower facilities with boxers forced to use the toilets in the nearby Harbour Bar.
Katie subsequently beat Russia’s Sofya Ochigava 10-8 and won Olympic gold for Ireland on August 9, 2012 in the female boxing lightweight final at the ExCeL Arena in London.
