Clonmel Boxing Club’s Blaine O’Brien will compete for Ireland in the European Schoolboy Championships, which are being held in the Citywest Hotel in Dublin.

The championships take place from this Sunday, July 28 to Sunday, August 4.

Last month Blaine won the National Junior Cadet Championship in style with a comprehensive victory over Martin Collins, Ballina in the final held at the National Stadium.

This was his second title win this year since claiming the schoolboy title in April and he showed he had made considerable progress to take home the Junior Cadet title.

Blaine has been training in Dublin with the Irish Schoolboys team for the last few weeks and his fellow club members in Clonmel wish him the best of luck, as he becomes the latest boxer from the club to represent his country.
