The Irish Athletic Boxing Association (IABA) is delighted to announce the launch of new initiative ‘HI GARDA’ in conjunction with An Garda Síochána. The initiative, which commenced last week and is scheduled to continue through October 2021, will see community Gardaí visiting their local boxing clubs to engage and interact with members. It is hoped the new programme will help to further strengthen the long-established relationships between the Gardaí and local boxing clubs
On Friday, Celtic Eagles Boxing Club welcomed members of An Garda Siochana to the club as part of a new initiative between the IABA and An Garda Siochana.
The purpose of the visit was for uniformed members of An Garda Siochana to introduce themselves informally as a point of contact between themselves and the boxing club.
