The Irish Warrior
by Margaret Gallagher Colbert

The life story of Marty Gallagher, the cocky Irishman from Washington, D.C., and his meteoric rise to fame as Washington’s own Heavyweight of Foggy Bottom during the height of the Depression, is told with love and admiration through the eyes of his oldest daughter, Margaret. News articles of the time have documented Marty’s wildly successful boxing career, but it is the stories that have been passed down and shared among family members that tell the real story of Marty Gallagher, a devoted son, husband, and father who worked his way through the ranks to realize his dream of becoming a boxing champion. Reminisce with Margaret as she retells the stories that made Marty Gallagher a symbol of hope and optimism during America’s toughest times. According to an old friend, Marty “fought the toughest and best heavyweights in the toughest and best era of boxing” to become one of the most admired boxers of his time.
