All roads lead to Dundrum House Hotel on this Saturday night when fifteen of the finest boxers in Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams and Clonoulty Rossmore GAA clubs meet in a novel fund raising event, a White collar boxing tournament that is being billed as “The Bust up in the Ballroom” Training for this event has been a lot harder than many expected but it will all help to make this a never to be forgotten spectacle that will live long in the memory.
