There were wins on the night for Chloe Moore (Swinford/Connacht) in the girl two 42kg grade, Shannon Sweeney (St Anne’s/Connacht), and Aoife Hennigan (Swinford/Connacht) in the intermediate 63kg grade.
There will be plenty of Mayo interest in the action in the National Stadium in Dublin where the IABA Elite National Championships finals will be taking place tonight. St Anne’s Ray Moylette will be up in the fourth bout of the night when he takes on Ross Hickey in what is potentially the bout of the night in the light-welterweight (64kg) grade. Moylette is the defending European champion and ranked number eight in the world, while Hickey is a two time elite champion and is defending his title from last year. Moylette, who had plenty of injury problems last year which curtailed his chances of making it to the Olympics, is back in top form this year and over the past two weekends saw off Patrick Mongan 14-7 in his quarter-final victory and Sean Duffy 18-10 in his semi-final win last Friday night.

The Eagle club held a short programme of 10 contests last Saturday night in the Wyatt Hotel in Westport. The host club had seven boxers on the night’s bill and picked up five wins out of those contests, marking a very successful night for the club. The best bout of the night went to the meeting of Kieran Roody from Eagle and Eoin McDonnell from the Ardagh/Crossmolina club in a contest that saw Roody come out on top. The meeting of Patrick Lawrence (Eagle) and Anthony Leonard (Ardagh/Crossmolina) was another top encounter with the local again picking up the win. The clash of Damien Joyce (Ballinrobe) and Patrick Fallon (Monivea) was another tough three round bout with the Mayo boxer just getting the nod on the night to have his hand raised in victory.
