Tralee Boxing Club News

Our young squad of boxers at Tralee Boxing Club have been keeping up the hard work this week with a trip to neighbours,Sliabh Luachra in Castleisland, for a night of sparring last Wednesday.


A change is as good as a rest, and it was a great opportunity for our boxers to get put through their paces by such experienced, dedicated boxers and coaches.

A brilliantly organised night as per usual, the kids enjoyed themselves immensely and honed their skills in a supportive, encouraging environment. TBC owe a huge thanks to Jenn, John, Jake, James and all the crew at SL, and we look forward to having all the guys come visit us here at the club in the next few weeks.


We would also like to wish former TBC boxer Mary Mc Donaghthe very best of luck on her journey to Italy with the Irish team for the European Junior Championships this week. A fabulous, talented young boxer, we have no doubt Mary will be a huge asset to the Irish team and will not fail to impress during the competition.

Kerry Mental Health and Wellbeing Fest is kicking off again shortly. The annual Fest began in 2018 to raise awareness of the supports and services for mental health in the county andschedules free events that empower people to engage with the five ways we can all improve our wellbeing.

The organisers have found that men are traditionally very slow to partake in wellbeing events, and the isolation that many experienced during covid, has had a negative impact on wellbeing in general.


Tralee Boxing Club has partnered up with the Fest this year to offer some free events aimed at encouraging our own members, and men in our community to improve their wellbeing,  connectwith others, be active, and keep learning.

As part of the programme we will offer a free beginners boxing class for men over 40 on Thursday 13th October. We hope this class will encourage more men to get active, meet others with similar interests and learn a few boxing skills along the way.

A handful of TBC’s own ‘mature’ men, (for want of a better word) will run the session and will be on hand to offer advice and support on keeping fit in later life, better nutrition, and the positive impact boxing has had in their own lives.


TBC will also run a coffee morning on Saturday 15th for members of the club. It offers a chance for new members and family to connect and integrate into the club community, have a cuppa and chat with some of the coaches, volunteers, parents and other long term members.
