The hour is drawing closer. Tomorrow morning at 9am Ciara Sheedy will weigh in ahead of the National Ladies Boxing Finals, at boxing Headquarters on the South Circular road, Dublin.

After final preparations and a quick weigh in tonight at the Conway Gym & Fitness Centre, the mood is good in the Swinford Camp. What’s done is done as they say, and now it’s down to Ciara Sheedy and 6 short minutes in the “four cornered ring”. Whatever happens tomorrow at 7pm, Ciara’s preparation cannot be questioned, as she has prepared as hard and as intensely, as any that have gone before her.

So all that remains is to wish Ciara the very best as she bids to win a a 27th title for Swinford Boxing Club and become the club’s 15th National boxing champion.
