An Post has commemorated two women of Irish Boxing in a new collection celebrating Ireland’s leading sportswomen, ahead of International Women’s Day on March 8th.
Among the 6 athletes are London Olympic champion, and undefeated world lightweight champion, Katie Taylor, and Tokyo Olympic Champion, Kellie Harrington.
Entries are now being accepted to the 8th Monkstown International Box Cup. This is an open class tournament for schoolboys/schoolgirls and juniors.
The tournament is organised by Monkstown Boxing Club, with the support of IABA and Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. It begins on Thursday, June 23rd and continues over three days.
Affiliation for the 2022/2023 season is scheduled to commence in April and take place through the Blocworx platform.
IABA is working with Blocworx to make the system more user-friendly and efficient. IABA has also sought the input of county boards and provincial units to contribute to that process.
Clubs who have not been up-dating their new members since the beginning of the season in to Blocworx are advised to begin doing so now – this will ensure that the affiliation process for your club takes as little time as possible.
