MAGILLIGAN was punching above its weight on Saturday night (November 4) as St Aidan's GAC held a fantastic fight night at its club house.
The GAA club was "packed to the rafters" as club men and women made their months of training count as they stepped into the ring to contest the eight boxing match-ups.
Eamon McLaughlin, Secretary of St Aidan's GAC, said: "We had a super night. The place was packed to the rafters as it always is when we do these events.
“There were eight great match ups and each contest was a contest, with every boxer going toe to toe and no quarter given.
“The headline act at the end between Cathal 'The Crusader' McCrudden and Conor 'Tubsy' O'Hara did not disappoint. Tubsy had a huge contingent out from Limavady for support and they were very vocal. There are videos circulating on social media....the crowd had the place bouncing.
“All in all, these events are not possible without the boxers who put themselves up for this. They are brave people and our club is entirely grateful.
