Dessie Macartney brother hits belfast after 25 years down under
and found his older sibling pounding punch-bags at ProKick
Macartney visited his brother and all their family in Belfast after
25 years living in Australia - He found his 56-year-old brother
Dessie hitting the a kickboxing gym four times a week when most
other grandfathers his age are normally sitting in the armchairs
and flick through the papers - The fighting grandfather is a news
breed of keep fit enthusiast in Belfast.
“Throughout my entire life I was never motivated to get involved
in any sport,” said Dessie.
Now all the family is punching bags at the gym its great."
Lets hope Brother Eddie take a little more back to Australia
than the soda bread which Belfast is famous for - hopefully Eddie
will sign up for a kickboxing course down under - We all hope to
see you back in Belfast soon in good old Belfast Mr Macartney and
that you don't leave it as long the next time. Or better still,
if Dessie moved out there he could start a Prokick gym and he could
stop beating up the younger fighters and making us all look bad
