Centenary Weekend Events Recap

Jul. 17, 2017

Friday Night – RORY STORIES & THE WHISTLIN DONKEYS

Rory Stories provided the early entertainment with a superb comedy sketch which left no man, woman or child safe from interactions with him. It was a laugh out loud stuff throughout.

The Whistlin Donkeys took to the stage and were excellent as the large crowd took to the dancefloor until the wee hours of the morning.

This was a tremendous evenings entertainment in front of a packed Marquee. 20 Fighters took to the ring for 10 very close fights in what was a great atmosphere generated by the legions of support for each particular fighter. From the introductions to the walk on’s, the fights themselves, announcement of winners and interviews afterwards. It was a thoroughly enjoyable spectacle.

Huge thanks to all sponsors, fighters, supporters and the Derrylin Boxing Club for their work with these lads over the last number of weeks. The hard work paid did indeed pay off.
