The Wicklow teen was nominated on the back her amazing displays in the World Junior Championships where she won gold and proved herself the best in the world at her weight.

The Irish Boxing Awards Young Amateur of the Year was a standout performer in the tournament and her displays en route to the top of the podium didn’t just secure her gold.

So impressive was the prospect she was named Best Female Boxer of the World Junior Championships.
