It is with great sadness that I bring you news that the death has occurred of our former National Secretary, Sean Crowley (Arklow B.C.). Sean was the longest serving National Secretary of modern times in the IABA, when he was continuously elected to the role for almost twenty years. 

A native of Fermoy in County Cork, Sean later moved to Arklow where he set up home and raised his family. As a former boxer himself, he passed the tradition down the line where his son Alaister and grandson Sean claimed Irish titles.

Sean Crowley was affectionately known as ‘the voice of boxing’ and anybody who attended the National Championships over the past twenty years would be familiar with his dulcet tones.

Ni bheidh a leitheid aris ann. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
