Tributes paid to talented young Mountmellick boxer killed in tragic accident

A local boxing club have paid tribute to one of their brightest young talents, who has lost his battle for life following a motorbike accident last week.

Ryan Hall (21) died in a Dublin hospital earlier today having been hospitalised following a motocross accident last week.

He suffered serious injuries in the incident and had been on life support for the past number of days.

Ryan, a featherweight, had won Leinster championships with the St John Bosco Club in Mountmellick and was preparing for a big fight in September.

“With the heaviest of hearts, to try and comprehend that this man is gone … is soul destroying,” said the club on their Facebook page.

“You will never ever be forgotten ryano champ. A boxing nut, and a forever face in the gym…Dedicated and passionate … always there to help or encourage others.

“Fly high brov, and rest in peace”.

Ryan is survived by his parents, brothers and sisters.
