The IABA extends its deep condolences to the Quinlan family following the recent death of Billy Quinlan.
The late Mr Quinlan, pictured above, represented Ireland versus England at the National Stadium in the 1960s and boxed for UCD in the Irish and Leinster Junior Championships in 1961, winning a Leinster title and reaching the finals at the Nationals.
May he rest in eternal peace.
