Just wondering what the boxing facilities are in DIT at the moment.
I understand its not all that well supported....
Any details would be appreciated.
I was wondering aswell and thats what I found when I googled it. They train in the Linen Hall but I dunno where or what the **** it is
Linnenhall is the building across from Bolton Street up past Bodkins where the apprentices spend a lot of their time afaik. Theres a small gym I think.
Aw i wanted to do boxing cause ive done it for quite some time now... but it clashes with footie times... anyway around that ppl?
I was under the impression that the bags and things were in the Kevin st?
Don't they have a gym too?
i tought the same... on DITs sport page it says its postitiond in kevin street..., maybe thats just were the guy organising it is? hope i dont have to travel far :/
Yeah tell me about it.
I dont really want all that much even! Just a couple of bags is all really...
anywere to take out ur anger... :L i hear only the top 1 of any weight division get meaningful fights so its just a distraction for me then :L
Yeah i want to do it just for fitness really...
Sure we should be able to sort something out between a bunch of us anyway.
Well i dunno, i guess the more people are interested, and show that they want to support it the more we will be able to get some gear provided and a space etc.
Im going in on tuesday for a fresher course so i'll ask what the story with the boxing is in Kevin st. Seem to recall it saying it on the website, but that they didnt have the website in operation.
I'll post any details tuesday evening.
Have you boxed before?
We should look for a place to spar as well. Its not clear if they have a ring etc.
Yeah been boxing since I was 11 an Im 19 now. Had around 40 fights and getting into training for the Intermediates in October or November. Just wondering.. Is there any college boxing competitions?? Because in secondary school there was aload of boxers and we couldnt get a team( which wouldve been a successful one) together because you had to be a novice
Im sure we could cough up and pay a club in town to train in.. like do a deal or something
Yeah sure should see what the story is with the in house facilities first though, we might save ourselves some bother.
Sounds good though.
Hi guys, Boxing begins next week( Monday) in Kevin street. Thursday is in Larkin hall...few mins from Bolten street.
Novice fights are held in November, seniors in January.
