The squad, who finished up a training camp at Dublin’s National Stadium last weekend, are scheduled to train and spar with Ulster, England and Scotland at the University of Ulster Jordanstown until October 29th.
The panel will then have a final camp with Russia and Cuba in Moscow from November 3rd to 14th before travelling to St Petersburg.
Team Ireland leave for Belfast from the National Stadium in Dublin tomorrow morning ahead of the camp with Ulster, England, and Scotland, and all four sides will meet in a test match on Thursday October 27th at the Girdwood Hub.
“The boys had a great training camp in Dublin and they’re ready for Belfast now. They’ll see plenty of action at the University of Ulster in the build up to the World Youth Championships,” said Irish coach Billy McClean who will be working Ireland’s corner alongside John Conlan in Russia.
All the boxers selected for St Petersburg took home National U18 titles at the recent championships in Dublin.
