To finish on that point, west Cork got a bit caught up in the success of the rowers, which was amazing, but we took just as much joy and pleasure in Kellie Harrington's success. This presents an opportunity. There is an appetite out there now. People are interested in boxing on the back of Katie Taylor and Kellie Harrington in particular. There is an opportunity there to expand.

My last question is for Mr. Treacy. It is not related to boxing but it is not often that I get an opportunity to quiz him on this matter. This is probably the last one I will have. Is he aware of freestyle kayaking?
