FUNERAL OF BOBBY MESSETT TAKES PLACE TODAY

The funeral takes place this morning of Bobby Messett – who was killed during a shooting in Wicklow.

Olympic boxing champion Katie Taylor has offered her condolences to the 50 year old’s family – saying they didn’t deserve this heartache.

Bobby Messet was killed and two others seriously injured when a gunman opened fire at Bray Boxing Club early on Tuesday morning.

Today his family and friends will gather in Wicklow to say their final goodbyes.

Last night boxing champion Katie Taylor issued a statement offering her condolences to the Messett family – saying she can’t imagine the sense of despair and injustice they must be dealing with.

She also says she’s relieved her father and former coach Pete Taylor survived the attack – although admits she’s had little contact with him in the last three years.

However she’s criticised been linked to the story and has moved to distance herself from Bray Boxing Club.
