Boxing Clever

Boxing Clever is a twenty-week integrated educational, substance use recovery and fitness programme that aims to support participants to develop more resilient identities, while encouraging educational achievement, physical wellness and reduction in harmful or risky behaviours. It offers a marginalised and socially excluded group, stable and drug free service users, the opportunity to reintegrate into mainstream society via the medium of a psycho-educational framework underpinned by the philosophy of peer mentoring.

The programme runs from September to March three day per week 10:00am to 1:00pm in the Northside Learning Hub Limerick:

  • Tuesdays (Community Addiction Studies QQI Level 5)
  • Wednesdays (Strength/Cardio Based Sports & Exercise)
  • Thursdays (Sports & Exercise QQI Level 5)

These are provided on a group basis. Participants also have access to one-to-one support as they need it as well as access to sports and training facilities as part of the programme.

Course Content


  • A year on from the programme, routine and structure are part of my daily life now. I have a purpose and reason for waking up each day now. I have seen a massive growth in myself and for the first time in years I am happy.

  • My confidence has grown a lot from Boxing Clever, routine has kept my recovery on track and opportunity to give back and help the programme is a big thing for me. It’s great to able to give back and understand personally about being in addiction.

  • Boxing Clever is sport, its fitness, its education, its meeting new friends, its meeting new people, its structure.


  • This programme has thought me a lot, I hadn’t been challenged before, with the addiction studies even putting a pen and paper in front of me I seen as a challenge. But the Boxing Clever staff are so supportive no matter what you abilities are the programme will work for you.
