Dublin Councillor Seeks To Award Kellie Harrington With Freedom Of The City


A local councillor for Dublin's north inner city has suggested Kelly Harrington be awarded the Freedom of the City.

Former Lord Mayor Nial Ring says he hasn't discussed it with his fellow councillors yet, but believes it would be deserved.

Kellie Harrington's gold brought Team Ireland's medal haul to four in total.


It meant a 39th place finish in the medal table - the highest since the 1996 Games.

Cllr Nial Ring wants to see the hometown hero receive the highest honour the Council can give.

If approved, Kellie Harrington would be the first boxer to receive such an honour.

Previous sporting recipients include Stephan Roche, Jim Gavin and Brian O'Driscoll.

Unfortunately, a major homecoming isn't planned for Kellie just yet due to Covid-19 restrictions.

However, the boxer is expected home tomorrow evening when Cllr Ring says "Portland Row will get the chance to show its appreciation".
