Boxing club floor repair

We were delighted to play a part in the refurbishment of the Bray Boxing Club, where our famous Olympic Champion Katie Taylor trains.

Coy Katie — who won a gold medal at the London Olympics in 2012 — said her new knockout gym at Bray Harbour is a far cry from the “tin shed” she trained in before her many sporting successes. Katie Taylor’s boxing club has had a face lift and ready and safer to train in.

She told The Star:

There was no toilet facilities, no showers, so we feel privileged now I think. We have heat now too, where beforehand you kind of dreaded coming down training because you knew how cold it was going to be. Now we have the best of everything, and while it’s not going to make you a better boxer, it is going to make training easier.

PMAC was called upon to offer their advice as the new timber floor was quite slippery. P Mac coated the floor with Dr. Schutz PU Sealer with grit, greatly increasing the slip resistance and giving the floor a beautiful satin finish.

PMAC wishes continued success to Katie and all who train at the club!

More than a boxing legend

In 2002, at the age of 15, Taylor appeared on RTÉ’s Sport Stream and discussed her dream of one day appearing at the Olympics.[104] She was a coach on RTÉ’s Charity Lords of the Ring in 2009, and appeared in a Lucozade Sport advertisement in 2011 alongside English rapper Tinie Tempah and American musician Travis Barker. She became the brand ambassador for Its4women, an online insurance company marketed at young women, in 2016.[105] She appeared in advertisements for the company on both television and YouTube.
