BARRY’S OLD BATTLEGROUND BACK IN ACTION!

24 September 2015 No Comments by The Northern Standard

It was standing room only when ‘Clones Cyclone’ Barry McGuigan paid a visit to Connons Community Centre on Tuesday evening to officially relaunch Wattlebridge Boxing Club.

Barry has strong links to the club as it was the first one he attended when he commenced his amateur career. It was re-established in March after lying dormant for a number of years and its membership now includes children from both sides of the Border.

The feel-good factor was high throughout the evening and cheers and applause rang out as the local hero and Honorary President of Wattlebridge Boxing Club cut the ribbon.

See full story by Cianna McNally and more photos by Rory Geary in next week’s issue.
