Commonwealth Games champion Paddy Barnes visits Monkstown Boxing Club where members are celebrating a funding boost as part of the legacy from Glasgow 2014.
The Newtownabbey-based club was one of 14 projects in the United Kingdom chosen to receive £250,000 to increase community participation and improve wellbeing.
Barnes was just back from Azerbaijan where he won his opening light-flyweight bout in the World Series of Boxing.
