Happy birthday to Dean Clancy, pictured above today and below with Irish squad, from the IABA.

The Irish Youth Olympian turned 17 today and can eat some cake – because he’s not making weight!

Clancy, Dearbhla Rooney and Lauren Kelly represented Ireland at the Youth Olympic which concluded in Buenos Aires yesterday.

Rooney claimed bronze at the tournament to maintain Irish boxing’s proud record of having medalled at every Youth Olympics since the inaugural tournament in Singapore in 2010.

The remainder of the Irish squad, including the boxing team under coach Dmitry Dimitruk, which competed in 9 sports in Buenos Aires are scheduled to arrive home tomorrow morning.
