Caoimhe ready to fight for Ireland

By Dan Walsh

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 from Marshalstown receives her Civic Award from Cllr Aidan Browne at the Enniscorthy Civic Reception in the Riverside Park Hotel, Enniscorthy, on April 21st 2022. Also in the picture are Caoimhe’s proud parents PATRICK and LYNDA KINSELLA.

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!
