Description

How a little kid from Dublin became a world champion boxer. Bernard Dunne tells his own story in his own words: for children!

Growing up in Neilstown, west Dublin, Bernard Dunne was always going to be a boxer. His Dad Brendan was an Olympic boxer in his day, and coached in the CIE club in Inchicore, and his two big brothers were skilled boxers too. As Bernard grew up boxing taught him to believe in himself and helped him to focus on goals both within the sport and in other parts of his life.

Bernard won his first boxing bout, at the age of six and against a ten-year-old, and went on to win thirteen Irish championship titles.

In this inspirational book, Bernard describes life as a boy in Neilstown, the ups and downs of his life and career, and the powerful life lessons and skills that sport can teach a child.

About the Author

Bernard Dunne was born and raised in Neilstown, west Dublin, the place he still calls home. The son of Olympic boxer Brendan Dunne, he competed in his first boxing match at six years old, and spent the next twenty-three years training and perfecting his craft. Narrowly missing out on qualifying for the 2000 Olympics, Bernard went on to a hugely successful professional career, with twenty-eight wins from thirty fights. He finally beat Ricardo Cordoba in a dramatic eleventh-round knockout at the Point Depot in Dublin in 2009 to become super-bantamweight World Champion. Since retiring from boxing, Bernard has written two books and several television series, worked with the Dublin Gaelic football team and as a sports analyst on RTE television, and become the High-Performance Director of Irish Boxing. Bernard lives in Dublin with his wife Pamela and their two children, Caoimhe and Finnian.

possibly more inspiring than all his glories in the ring, however, are the life lessons Dunne has learned from boxing, and which he now communicates to young fans
