Almost 120 medals have been claimed by Ireland’s top young boxers in 17 years of European Schools boxing.

Irish boxing has medalled at every European Schoolboy/girls Championships since the inaugural outing in Rome in 2003.

Some of the households names of the sport in Ireland – Carl Frampton, Joe Ward, David Oliver Joyce, John Joe Joyce and many more – have finished in podium positions.
