John Fitzpatrick to open new O'Hanlon Park Boxing Club premises in Dundalk

O’Hanlon Park Boxing Club will hold the official opening of its new spacious, top class premises located at the old Toymaster building, Longwalk, Dundalk on Thursday 23 November at 7pm.

John Fitzpatrick, of Fitzpatrick Hotels in New York, got involved with the club when he participated in the RTE Secret Millionaire programme in 2013 and was so taken with the great work the club did for the local community that he pledged to raise funds to help move to a new premises of their own.

He has since raised more than €425,000 through the Eithne and Paddy Fitzpatrick Memorial Fund and the Boxing Club raised over €56,000 including a grant, to enable the Club move to the new building.
