I congratulate the Monivea Boxing Club on their recent international success of two of the club’s members.
Lea Butler won a European Bronze medal and Adam Hession has won a European U22 silver medal. This is a major success for this long-established club situated in a rural village in East Galway.
“Last week the Club was successful in their application to the Capital Sports Grants for funding of training equipment. The club received €6,638”.
“Clubs like Monivea can be the catalyst for more medals at European, World and Olympic level. We as a nation can provide more success from these rural clubs”.
“I salute Monivea and the team involved, including Gerry (Gus) Farrell and Cllr. Gabe Cronnelly who continue to work tirelessly for the Club.
