Less than 24 hours after Kieran Molloy retained his Irish Elite welter belt after a classic welterweight final with Paddy Donovan, he was back at the National Stadium gym to encourage the next generation.
“Our 2019 Elite 69KG Champion Kieran Molloy brought his Champions Cup to Sunday mornings Elite Schoolboys and Schoolgirls squad training on a visit to his old stomping ground. Kieran explained to those present that this is where he started as an Irish Champion many years ago and that with hard work, they too can achieve Elite titles and more, in the years ahead. Hard work pays off!”
