Clonmel Boxing Club will host its annual tournament in the Clonmel Park Hotel on Friday, January 31.

This promises to be an action-packed night, with the club’s three Irish champions - Con Sheehan, Dean Gardiner and Blaine O’Brien - in action. Dean Gardiner won the National Intermediate Superheavyweight title last year, while Blaine O’Brien won the Boy 3 and Cadet national championships.

Meanwhile Con Sheehan competed in the World and European Senior Championships in 2013. Twelve contests will be down for decision and tickets are very keenly priced at just €10.
