A new article about Jim Coffey appeared in yesterday's issue of the Roscommon Herald . I have previously written about Jim, a professional boxer who came to the United States from Ireland in 1919 and returned to his homeland sometime between 1920 and 1923.
Coffey had fought more than 100 fights but only about 44 of them had been officially ruled on. His record at retirement in 1920 was 38 wins and 6 losses.

I do not know how long articles from the Herald remain online.
