Intermediate Final results

The final tournament of 2014 concluded at the National Stadium in Dublin tonight, with 17 new National Intermediate champions crowned at the home of Irish boxing.

Gary Cully beat Hughie Joyce in a cracking lightweight clash, the former European Youth champion earning a unanimous decision from a fiery all-Kildare 60kg battle.

Myles Casey and Johnny Harty brought two titles back to Limerick at the expense of Ryan Adam and Jack Moore, while Galway’s Patrick Mongan and Cork’s Colin Donovan were involved in an explosive 64kg final.

Mongan’s corner could be heard encouraging their man to give it one big last round, and the Olympic BC ace certainly did that, as did Donovan, culminating in both boxers going toe-to-toe in the final ten seconds before Mongan was declared the winner.

Claire Sweetman, Orla McInerney and Barry Walsh also emerged victorious, while Louise Donoghue impressed en route to a unanimous decision over Ciara Dowling and Emma Agnew recorded an inside the distance win over Emma McGlynn.

Noel McBride had his hand raised from another top class affair with Sean Hunt and Ryan Dervan edged out Paul Kelly on one of five split decision. Patrick Ward and Jeff Kavanagh also split the judges in their favour.

Kiril Afanasev and Bernie Stokes secured the last two Irish titles of 2014, a year which marks the 75th anniversary of the opening of the National Stadium in 1939.

Speaking after the 136-bout tournament, IABA President Tommy Murphy congratulated all concerned for a memorable Championships.

“The boxers, coaches and clubs deserve enormous credit for their performances at these Championships. We saw some thrilling finals this evening, the best of Irish boxing, he said.

“Everyone involved with this tournament, the boxers, coaches, clubs, referees and judges and staff deserve congratulations for a memorable occasion.”
