07:13, 08 Aug 2012
Katie Taylor's home town is gearing up for her Olympic semi-final fight this afternoon.
She takes on 19-year-old Mavzuna Chorieva of Tajikstan at 2pm this afternoon after defeating Great Britain's Natasha Jonas in her opening bout on Monday.
A big screen has been rolled into Bray Civic Centre on the Wicklow town's main street, so locals can gather to cheer on the four-time World Champion in her latest bout.
Katie has already guaranteed a medal after a win on Monday, but a victory today would see her continue on in the battle for gold.
Meanwhile later tonight, Beijing bronze medalist Paddy Barnes can claim his second Olympic medal.
