The Juvenile Club would like to congratulate Niall McCarthy, who this morning won a gold medal in the Novice Junior 86kg weight category of the Irish Athletic Third Level Boxing Association finals.
Niall, who was boxing for UCC, where is he studying to be a PE and history teacher, won a close fought contest against Finbarr McGuire (CIT) in the national intervarsity championships.
Niall has only been boxing for a number of months since he retired from playing senior hurling with Carrigtwohill at the end of 2016. He boxes with the St. Colmans club in Shanagarry.
Well done to Niall and his coaches on a fantastic achievement.
