Seven Boxing clubs in County Galway received some very good news this week when they learned that their applications for financial support were successful from Galway sports partnership.

Each of the seven clubs were awarded €800 each to deliver boxing programmes in their local areas aimed at enhancing participation within their own boxing club.

The financial support will also assist clubs in purchasing equipment to deliver these Boxing programmes.

Most of the programmes that received financial support are specifically targeting females of all ages within their respective communities to get involved in their local boxing club.
