Ireland’s clubs and boxing fans turned out in force to get behind Ireland’s next generation of stars on a pulsating afternoon at IABA headquarters.
The St Brigid’s BC were celebrating on the double following back-to-back wins for Katelyn Phelan and Katelyn Doran.
But there was double disappointment for the Fermoy BC after the brave Maggie Cullen and Amy Milward lost out to the talented Golden Gloves and Clann Naofa pair of Joanne Padden and Shauna O’Callaghan.
Milward was involved in a cracking 46kg three-rounder with O’Callaghan. This one went all the way down to a countback, the Clann Naofa ace getting the nod on a 69-67 verdict.

An end-to-end decider saw both boxers tied at 13-13 before Aquieta’s hand that was raised by a two-point margin of victory on accepted scores.
Christine Gargan, a silver medal for Ireland at the 2010European Youth and Junior Championships, also remerged victorious today.
Talented young Kildare and Tramore prospects Molly Brennan and Zoe Breslin got Saturday’s last-four contests underway.
