Promising young boxing star Caoimhe Kinsella, (17), has been selected on the Ireland boxing team competing in the World Youth Boxing Championships in La Nucia in Spain later this month – November 12th-27th.
A native of Marshalstown, Caoimhne is a member of St Anthony’s and St. Patrick’s Boxing Club, Enniscorthy.
Caoimhe Kinsella was honoured on becoming All-Ireland and European Boxing Champion 2019 and winning the Girl 6 Irish championship at the Enniscorthy Civic Awards last April. She was nominated by Cllr Aidan Browne.
A contemporary report said; “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.”
Good wishes are pouring in for the Marshalstown boxing star at the world championships and let’s cheer her on to bring home a medal!
