The IABA extends its deep sympathies to the Dunne family following the death of Bernard Dunne of the St Anthony’s/St Patrick’s club in Enniscorthy, Wexford.

A true boxing man, the late Mr Dunne was coach to ten-time National Elite champion Jim O’Sullivan amongst many other Irish champions.

He was the serving Vice-President of the Wexford County Board and the previous President of same.
