President's Address

A very warm welcome one and all to the Tralee Boxing Club's new website.
At Tralee Boxing Club we are very lucky to have a small but very dedicated committee. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of them for all their hard work.
Tralee has a very rich boxing tradition for many years. The Club was first formed back in the 1930's. We have had some good successes over the years. This is mainly at Munster level. We have also had many National champions. The last of these was Kevin Comiskey. Kevin won five National titles in all and boxed for Ireland.
On many occasions in the late 1990's we also had five Provincial champions at the time. Hopefully it won't be too long before we have success like that.
The Club train five nights a week at our headquarters at Ballymullen Army Barracks and a big thank you to the Army.
New members are very welcome. The young kids love the training. They find the training stimulating, fun and challenging as they progress. Boxing helps them grow and learn at their own level. It is all about the taking part. It is a very motivating environment. There is nothing like exercise to help kids mix and makes them happier people and helps them develop a healthier lifestyle. We teach them self confidence in a safe environment. Boxing helps them with self esteem, confidence and teaches them to have great respect and discipline for themselves and others.
I hope you all enjoy the new website. A big thank you to Eamon Moriarty and to Siobhan O'Mahoney for all their hard work in getting the website up and running.

Yours in Boxing
Tommy Kelliher
