Katie Taylor is going to be honoured with an official homecoming ceremony in Bray this Friday evening.

The Irish boxer was crowned the undisputed lightweight world champion after defeating Delfine Person at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.

Katie arrived home to huge cheering crowds at Dublin Airport on Tuesday, where she happily posed for pictures with fans.

The homecoming ceremony will take place at the bandstand on Bray Promenade at 7pm on Friday.

It’s being organised by Wicklow County Council along with consultations from gardaí, Katie’s family and her management team.

Frank Curran, chief executive of Wicklow County Council, said, “Katie is a true champion and a wonderful Ambassador for Bray and Wicklow and it is fitting that the Council should host a homecoming for her to mark her wonderful win.”
