Emyvale Boxing Club in conjunction with Gaeil Triucha have organised a major Boxing
Tournament on the opening night of the Bank Holiday Weekend Festival at St. Mellans.
In the big marquee on the pitch the torunament will be an exciting event and should
attract big crowds. Boxers from Truagh and Emyvale will face opponents from Smithboro
and other clubs. The doors open at 7.30 with the first bout at 8pm. I called in to
the Club on Friday night last and it was a lively spot with calories dropping all
over the place with every drop of sweat and the sound of leather against leather
as the punch bags were punished and energy was all around - was that healthy or what?
