'Murray and long time friend Emery honored by the British Consul General in Geneva.'


Billy Murray and his team dined with Geneva's high-society and chatted to the rich and famous when accepting an invite to a private function by the British Ambassador to Geneva - Mrs Suzanne Gregory.

Murray was in Villars Switzerland as he led an All Ireland kickboxing team against the Swiss. His Prokick Gym, has geared toward giving youngsters a rare opportunity to experience a different lifestyle in a country where Murray spent two years developing his fight career. Murray has spent much of his career using sport to build bridges between communities. He has been a leading figure in bringing together sports people from all corners of Ireland, and was recently acknowledged for this work by the Irish President, Mary McAleese.

The Swiss team captain, Carl Emery and Murray both worked hard together to make the venture in Villars a reality and furthering an already strong link between Switzerland and Ireland. The Villars event was a co-promotion between former world champ Carl Emery and Claude Oehrli, owner of a restaurant called Rotisserie Des Alpes,” explained Murray.
“It has been a brilliant thing to witness,” said ProKick head coach Billy Murray. “For many of these kids – all of whom are aged between 6-12 years old – this was their first time on a plane and their first trip abroad. They were selected on merit to perform at the event in Switzerland and it was down to the dedication of the children and their families that we were able to take so many of them to Switzerland."

Murray added, " And if you thought nothing could top it off - we were at a reception hosted by the UK Embassy to acknowledge the work Carl and I are doing, its madness, we were holding court in front of top Irish and US delegates, along with some of the richest people in the country and the great thing was they were all really interested in what we were doing - it was an unforgettable night. Carl and I both giggled like kids when we left, we were as proud as punch.

“I would like to thank everyone involved at the UK Mission for inviting me and my team. It was an honour to be there and we all had a great time!”

Several senior members of the ProKick team, including world champion Gary Hamilton and Ian Young, also competed in the Villars event. See here for results
