An online fundraiser has been set up to raise money for the Dublin boxing club where Olympic gold medalist Kellie Harrington started out.

Despite a surge in young girls joining, the Corinthians Boxing Club in the north inner city has no female toilets and no shower facilities.

The GoFundMe page has a target of €30,000. Joe Carabini is organising the fundraiser;

"On multiple occasions, this club has tried and tried to get sports funding from DCC and cannot seem to avail of it. I have decided to see what funding I could get to let me build the facilities for the club."

He says there's been an increase in interest in the club on the back of Harrington's success; "The club where Kellie Harrington originally started in her boxing career has brought a lot of younger girls to the club with hopes and dreams of following in the stars footsteps this is very hard for the club as they can't turn these young girls away but badly need the facilities to accommodate the youngsters."
He says the money will go towards new facilities and anything left over will be spent on new equipment.
