Former Irish Olympian (1996) and professional boxer (16-2-0 -13 KO) Cathal O’Grady, pictured above, far right, called in to see Ireland’s young prospects at the Gormanston Summer Boxing Camp yesterday.

O’Grady, who runs whitecollarboxing.ie, regaled the boxers with tales of his days training in Gormanston and offered them encouragement in their future careers. He also hinted to concentrate on education and other opportunities will present themselves if the boxing doesn’t.

Below is a picture of some of the boxers doing stretching exercises following a training session.
