It is a period that is not much explored or understood,” stated archaeologist Sarah McCutcheon.Kilmallock’s town walls, 70 per cent of which remain standing today, make it one of Ireland’s most intact walled towns. Hundreds of metres of the town’s medieval walls have been restored in recent years.Brian Hodkinson of Limerick Museum said that the event would raise the profile of the late medieval remains within the environs, encourage repeat visits and establish Limerick city, Kilmallock and other walled towns firmly on the itinerary of cultural tourism.

Former Agbeko victim Vic Darchinyan stops Paulino in Australia

first_imgFormer IBF, WBC, WBA champion Vic “Raging Bull” Darchinyan (42-8-1, 31 KOs) had no trouble against an over-matched Cris “The King” Paulino (14-2, 4 KOs) and forced the Filipino to retire at the end of the 2nd round.It was a scheduled ten round bout and so Vic captured the WBC Asian Boxing Council super bantamweight title at the Alexandria Basketball Stadium, Sydney, Australia. Ray Wheatley of the World of Boxing reported that Paulino “connected with accurate combinations in round one against the aggressive Darchinyan, who had problems finding the range against the the mobile sharpshooting Filipino.” However, the 39-year-old former world champion – who lost to Joseph Agbeko in 2009 – stepped up aggressively in round two and dropped Paulino with a powerful body shot. Paulino took the mandatory eight count but finished on unsteady legs forcing his cornermen to throw in the towel to save him from further punishment. Another Filipino Jorbert Delos Reyes (15-6-1, 10 KO’s) was stopped by undefeated former Australian lightweight champion George Kambosos (9-0, 5 KOs) in the fourth round of a scheduled twelve round Pan Asian Boxing Association title bout.  Wheatley reported that “the action see-sawed in rounds one, two and three as both Kambosos and Delos Reyes took command of the contest in an entertaining 135 pound bout that had the fans on the edge of their seats. But at 2:34 of round four, referee Pat O’Connor crowned Kambosos the winner after he dropped Delos Reyes with a perfectly timed right hand bomb to the head.” Delos Reyes taken to hospital but was later released and will return to the Philippines later this week to marry his fiancé.” –last_img read more
