Gráinne Walsh



Grainne played soccer for 8 years before she boxed. She played for Shamrock Rovers for 3 years and then was capped for Ireland at U17 level. Interestingly she spent two summers working on a campsite with children in Italy after she finished school and learned Italian. She then went on to study Italian and German in NUI Galway for 2 years. Grainne is an exciting prospect to follow in the coming years!
