WATCH: Mini Documentary – ‘Girl Boxers of Ireland’


Recently an English film maker, Ricky Williams, spent some time at Kildare Town Boxing Club to shoot a special documentary for social media giant UNILAD.

The short film, ‘Girl Boxers of Ireland,’ focuses on seven-time Irish champion Katelynn Phelan, younger sister of current pro Allan, and was shot before she represented Ireland at the European Youth Championships in Bulgaria.

The documentary features extensive interviews with the Kildare light welter, as well as her coaches, family, and team-mate Marguerita Nevin.

The condensed version of the video has attracted almost three quarters of a million views in less than a day.
