TG4’s Rónán Ó Coisdealbha said: “We are happy to be making this major international boxing event available on free to view television as Ireland’s most successful and revered female sports star ever once again puts her reputation on the line and goes to do us (and herself) proud on the world stage. Women’s sport has always been a priority for us and Mná na hÉireann feature strongly in our sports output. 2014 has been a bumper year on TG4 in this regard with our successful exclusive live coverage of the Ladies Singles Tennis Championships from Wimbledon, the Women’s Rugby World Cup, year-round coverage of Ladies Gaelic Football at all levels up to the recent All-Ireland Finals and now the World Boxing Championships”.
