'Seconds Out ...' A Day in the Life of Ross Ward

'Seconds Out ...' is a collaborative community outreach project between several key organisations all located on O'Connell Street and in the heart of the Waterford Cultural Quarter. Waterford Youth Reach, Garter Lane Arts Centre and the Waterford Gallery of Art are to develop a joint community project between the respective youth groups and provide specialist facilitated expertise and upskilling through the creation of a short film focusing on one of the groups' members.

In the last weeks of July, Ross, an active member of Waterford Youth Reach, has been selected to represent Ireland in an International boxing competition being held in Palestine. Ross, who is proudly from a traveller community background and trains with the St Saviour's Boxing Club (Ballybeg, Waterford) will be one of the first people to have ever been invited to partake in a boxing tournament being organised by the Palestinian Boxing Federation.
