Ardnaree celebrates 60 years producing champions

Ardnaree boxing club has become an institution in pugilistic circles in Mayo and across the country from humble beginnings in 1949 when 40 young boxers took up the sport for the first time. The club has gone on to write a very long and proud history, claiming 26 national titles, more than 300 Connacht titles and 500 Mayo titles, and producing eight internationals through the more than 1,600 young boxers who have donned gloves in competition for the club. Ardnaree has also had the honour of being the first club in the country to train female boxers back in 1996 when they had 30 girls enter their gym and club secretary Fiona Hennigan became the first female judge in Ireland to pass the European and World exams. She has gone on to represent Ireland at European and world championships. The club has captured national titles in every decade since it was formed the first in 1955 when Noel Coggins became the first man to bring a national title west of the Shannon. This feat was followed right up to this decade when Gerry Casey (twice), Gary Geraghty, and Alex Corduff all brought national titles back to the club.
