Geesala Boxing Club held their annual tournament in Erris House Hotel last Saturday night. As usual there was a full house and the audience was treated to a great night’s entertainment. Dylan Meenaghan provided the curtain raiser and also the first win of the night for the Geesala team. He was followed by fine performances from Peter Howard and Martin McDonnell. Martin’s brother Shane McDonnell also gave a good performance but did not get the nod from the judges. Liam Ginty, who hails from Inver, was desperately unlucky when he was the wrong side of a majority decision in a very close contest. It was the same story for Pearse Holmes. However James Coyle got the Geesala side back to winning ways and he was followed with another win by last year’s Irish champion, Shane McIntyre. Last time out Shane McAndrew thrilled the crowd in Glenamoy with a great knock out win but, despite a great battle, he failed to register a victory. Then newcomer Andrew Kelly gave a tremendous performance to snatch another victory for the home side. Just before the break the crowd were on their feet again and despite the lack of local interest they acknowledged the skill and determination of J Langan of Knockmore and D O'Reilly from Nielstown in Dublin.
