Last Friday night (26th April) Esker Amateur Boxing Club received two awards at the Southside People South County Dublin Sports and Community Awards night in The Talbot Hotel, Stillorgan. The Club was shortlisted down to the final 3 clubs from 60 nominated clubs representing all sports in the South Dublin area.
The awards which were hosted by RTE’s Joe Duffy recognise a Club’s contribution to their own community. Esker Boxing Club were nominated largely because of their hosting of the Esker All Female BoxCup over the past 7 year’s and also their OutStraight campaign plus several other initiatives in the Lucan and surrounding areas.
Esker Boxing Club were delighted to win the Best Club Award but the night got even better when they were brought back on stage to receive the Overall Sports Award for South County Dublin.
The Club would just like to thank all of their boxers, parents, supporters and sponsors who have got them to this stage. As they say out in Lucan….
GERRUP THE ESKER..!!
