Fay, who boxes out of the Swords BC in Dublin, said she was thrilled to claim gold in the bantamweight class after winning four bouts on the bounce in the Bulgarian capital.

Lisa O’Rourke’s elder sister, Aoife, who claimed gold at the European Elites in Madrid recently, was also at the airport today to welcome Team Ireland home.
