Women's amateur boxing in Ireland: Kelly Harrington

Irish boxer Kelly Harrington is the latest boxer to decide that all-women's sparring days are the way forward. Harrington has competed at Senior Amateur level for Ireland.

The Irish women's team trains in Dundalk, in the north of the country. Between travel-times and family commitments, Harrington says it's not always accessible for boxers in other parts of the country.

She talked to me on NearFm about this weekend's sparring session in her home club of Corinthians.


Interviews about other sparring sessions are here. And this FB group is the place to go if you'd like to join the next one: Women in Martial Arts in Ireland.
