This year’s Louth Open Boxing Championship saw boxers from 22 boxing clubs from six counties compete across 115 bouts over the space of four days at Omeath Boxing Club and St Cianan’s Boxing Club recently.    

Male and female boxers from Louth, Meath, Dublin, Westmeath, Down and Armagh competed with some excellent bouts catching the attention of the spectators.

Louth had 10 clubs competing, including two from Dundalk, O’Hanlon Park Boxing Club - who won two gold medals - and Dealgan Boxing Club - who won a staggering 12 gold and five silver.

Dealgan Boxing Club’s Samantha O’Hare also secured the Best Female Boxer award of the tournament after a stunning performance in the final where she was crowned the new Louth champion.

The Best Male Boxer of the tournament went to Jordan Carragher of Tredagh Boxing Club in Drogheda.  

The Louth County Board would like to express its appreciation to Omeath Boxing Club and St Cianan’s Boxing Club for providing the venues for the tournament and also to express its thanks to all officials and coaches and to all the clubs who took part in this successful tournament.
