WHITE COLLAR BOXING

WHITE COLLAR BOXING

All roads lead to Dundrum House Hotel on this Saturday night when 15 of the finest boxers in Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams and Clonoulty Rossmore GAA clubs meet in a novel fund raising event, a white collar boxing tournament that is being billed as “The Bust up in the Ballroom.”

Training for this event has been a lot harder than many expected but it will all help to make this a never to be forgotten spectacle that will live long in the memory. Of course both camps are confident of victory on the night.

Entry to the ballroom itself is strictly ticket only but the fights will be televised live at the Venue where an entrance fee of E10 will be charged on the door with disco to follow.
