Sliabh Luachra Boxing Club had an incredible week at the All-Ireland championships in Dublin recently with three of the club’s boxers claiming national titles.

Pa Casey, Tommy Murray, and Jamesie Casey all demonstrated their skill and determination, bringing home gold medals for their club.

“Pa Casey’s journey from the county to the national championships was remarkable and his victory in the final against a strong opponent from St. Michaels Athy in Kildare was a thrilling moment for him and his supporters, Pa’s first of many All Ireland titles,” said Jennifer O’Sullivan-Coffey.

Showcasing Talent

“Tommy Murray’s back-to-back championship wins showcased his talent and dedication to the sport. With his family firmly behind him and the support he receive from his brother John, both at home and in the club, the blonde bomber gained his second All Ireland title,” Jennifer continued.

“Jamesie Casey’s fifth national title is a testament to his skill and consistency in the ring and his controlled performance throughout the tournament, culminating in a gold medal, reflects the hard work he puts in.

“Supported by his father James’ efforts to provide him with the best training opportunities, this undoubtedly contributes to Jamesie’s ongoing success.

Dedication and Hard Work

“The dedication and hard work of the entire team, both boxers and coaches is evident in the impressive results at both the provincial and national championships.

“It’s clear that Sliabh Luachra Boxing Club has a bright future ahead with promising talent and a supportive community behind it,” said Jennifer.
