Gloves are off for GAA fundraiser
Forget Mayweather or Khan: in the coming weeks, Oberstown residential care worker Stephen O'Donoghue steps into the ring for a white collar boxing event at City North. Billed as 'O'Dwyers Centenary Knock Out' the May 5 event features 17 fights to raise funds for the Balbriggan GAA club, which is celebrating 100 years. Stephen, who boxed as a teenager, says the training is intense in the run up to the big night. "It's a great way of keeping fit. I'm sparing three nights a week and am very conscious of what I eat - and it's all for a good cause." If anyone would like to support Stephen and attend the fight night, contact him by email for more information.
