2021 Irish Elite Senior Championships – FULL DRAW

The draw for the 2021 Elite Championships have been made and we are now just a few days away from domestic Irish amateur boxing resuming.

The National Stadium in Dublin will host three weekends of action featuring much of Ireland’s brightest talents.

Olympic gold medallist Kellie Harrington is among a handful of late withdrawals but there are still countless intriguing match-ups and fascinating talking points as amateur boxing adjusts to the expanded weight classes recently introduced by AIBA.

The tournament also, it seems, will factor into the selection of the Irish team for the 2021 World Championships later this year with the IABA confirming that they have received a special dispensation which allows them to delay their naming of the team until after the Elites conclude.

The draw for this year’s tournament in full can be found below.
