A fantastic weekend of top class boxing was enjoyed at the Four Nations tournament hosted by the Dublin County Board last weekend.
The Leinster Development squad, Dublin and teams from Germany and Russia competed in the capital.
“All teams came prepared and all the bouts were boxed with lots of determination, skill, fitness and pride. It was a pleasure to watch. We wish all the boxers well in their journey into their Under 18 season and then onto senior boxing in the near future, said JP Kinsella.
Irish women’s boxing is facing into a key 2018 with two AIBA rankings tournaments on the horizon for the New Year.
The first of these will be the European Women’s Elite Championships in Poland in May.
The second – the big one – is the AIBA World Elite Women’s Championships in New Delhi in November.

Squad Training for Schoolboys tomorrow is cancelled due to deteriorating weather conditions.
“The safety of boxers and coaches/parents travelling is paramount and for this reason, no training will take place,” said Paddy Gallagher.
Training for all schoolboy boxers will recommence after Christmas and the Elite Schoolboys.
Coaching staff want to wish all our boxers, their families and coaches a very happy Christmas and prosperous new year.
