The club was started by unified lightweight champion Katie Taylor's father, Pete Taylor.

A gunman wearing a balaclava or helmet and armed with what police believe was a handgun entered the gym.

Gardai said the suspect had fled the scene at the Harbour area of Bray in a white or silver van. "That's something that we are trying to find out". Katie Taylor, one of the most successful amateur boxers in recent history, trained out of the gym at the outset of her career but was training in the United States at the time of the shooting.
