As part of the Truagh Festival Bank Holiday weekend at St. Mellans Emyvale Boxing
Club held a Boxing Tournament in the Big Marquee on Friday, April 29th. A good crowd
turnout and the boxers provided a great programme of tough boxing and very close
contests. The surroundings were great for the event and there was a real boxing arena
atmosphere. Ciaran Treanor and myself shared the duties as MC and everything went
according to plan. After the Boxing there were two bouts of Mud-wrestling in the
Marquee and Ann and Caoimhe showed they were not afraid to get their hair dirty.
Christopher and Patrick were like the proverbial pigs in ..... and did not hold back
on mixing with the mud.
Oisin Treanor was named Emyvale Boxer of the Night and his dad, Michael collects
the trophy for him. It is presented by Ciaran Treanor.
