Paddy Clavin – A World Champion is Given a Hero’s Welcome
On the 31st of July 2022, Templemore welcomed home another sporting hero. In glorious sunshine with Irish flags waving, a delighted crowd gathered at the Templemore Fire Station to welcome home Paddy Clavin, a world champion! Representing Templemore Fire and Rescue, Paddy boxed at the World Police and Fire Games that were held in Rotterdam. His challenger in the final was a policeman from Kazakhstan and not only did Paddy win the match he won every successive round in what was to be a tough final. Paddy has won multiple titles in his 10-year boxing career. He is a great inspiration to all of us but especially young and aspiring boxers. Luckily, he gets to share his passion and expertise as head coach in Templemore’s Boxing Club. A driving force behind this club, Paddy is delighted to be giving back to the community. We are very lucky to count him among our own. The very best of luck with all future endeavors, Paddy!
