The IABA extends its condolences to the O’Leary family following the death of Willie O’Leary.
“Over many years Willie O’Leary has made a significant contribution to the sport of boxing in Cork,” said Cork County Boxing Board President Michael O’Brien expressing sympathy to the O’Leary family on behalf of the Board.
The late Mr O’Leary penned “Leeside Legends”, a book which featured the stand out athletes of Rebel County boxing in both codes.
May he rest in eternal peace.
Funeral arrangements to follow.
