Inspired this morning by this video of Monkstown Boxing Club.

It is truly amazing how Irish people get together to try and make their local area better.

IABA like GAA are two of the fantastic amateur sports in Ireland

That's a great video. My late sister lived in the Flats and I lived in Fitzgerald Park and there was always a great community spirit in the area. It's great to see that spirit being brought into action. My sister would have been delighted,Tommy Rapple,the Chairperson and founder member was her son-in-law and at least 2 of her grandchildren fought in the National Championships. I see Tommy at family get togethers but I never realised how extensive the club is and what a role he plays in it. Tommy's a doer not a talker,fair play to them all. wuu wuu wuu

I always find that the quiet ones and the unnderstàted ones are the doers.
