A Town, a county and a nation holds its breath
The whole country is expected to come to a halt today as Katie Taylor goes for Olympic gold in London.
The Bray girl will face Russia's Sofya Ochigava in the final today at 4.45.
Thousands are expected in her home town of Bray, where the fight will be shown on large TV screens at the shoreline leisure centre on the southern cross.
TV crews and journalists have been in the town since early morning.
Yesterday over 4,000 turned up to watch Katie's semi-final fight which was shown on Bray's Main street.
A call centre in Kilcoole told Wicklownews.net " As soon as the fight started yesterday the phones fell silent and as Katie left the ring normal service resumed, the country are delighted for her."
Bray town Councillor John Brady said "Today is the biggest day in the history of Bray, the media have been milling around since early morning and everyone has a story to tell about Katie."
"We are just putting the finishing touches to what will be a great day."
Shuttle buses have been organised from Bray Dart station and the old Dell site on the Boghall Road, beginning at 3pm, for anyone who wants to go to Ballywaltrim for today's event, with around 7,000 people expected to attend.
Gardai are advising motorists to expect delays from approx 2:30pm in Bray ahead of Katie Taylor’s fight at 4:45pm
