RESULTS: The Liffey Crane Hire Irish Boxer of the Month – END OF SUMMER SPECIAL

It’s time for the results of a special edition of the Liffey Crane Hire Irish Boxer of the Month award.

Both July and August have been considered this time round for a bumper End of Summer special.

With pro shows at home and massive amateur success abroad, it was an extended shortlist and a huge number of votes coming in from all around the country.

Without further ado, the winner of the vote is…

Caoimhe Kinsella

The Wexford 38kg fighter blasted her way to gold at the European Schoolgirls Championships (U14) in Georgia.

The St Anthony’s/St Pat’s fighter won her final in Tblisi with a second-round stoppage versus Turkey.

With long levers and big power, Kinsella looks a force to be reckoned with.


Coming in second was Castlerea’s Aoife O’Rourke who won a wonderful gold at the European Elite Championships in Madrid while Adam Olaniyan finished third following his heavyweight gold at the European Schoolboys.
