MEDAL ALERT – Mary McDonagh wins World Junior BRONZE at least

Mary McDonagh is a World Junior Championships medalist.

The Kerry fighter stepped onto the podium in Yerevan, Aremina today after securing herself a light middleweight semi-final slot.

The Sliabh Luachra boxer defeated Akbota Essimekova of Kazakhstan to get a busy day for Team Ireland off to a perfect start and secure bronze at the very least.

McDonagh, who is now a European Schools and World Junior medal winner, will look to upgrade to silver over the weekend.

Christian Doyle was also out early this morning but was beaten by Polish opposition 4-1 in super flyweight quarters.
