Armagh-Down clubs performed well at the National Youth Championships last weekend at the National Stadium in Dublin. Stephen Mulholland (St Malachy’s) was the stand out boxer of the championships at the weekend with some great performances. In the first bout of the 64kg class Stephen defeated Joshua Coughlan (St Saviours) with a first round knockout to progress to the quarter finals where Mulholland defeated Darragh Roche (Sunnyside) on a heavy points scoreline of 21-8 in his favour. Mulholland now meets Dylan Moran (Dungarvan) Friday night for a place in the final. Daniel Fullerton (Keady) also faces a tricky test on Friday night for a place in the 56kg final against Sean Higginson (St Agnes, Belfast). Fullerton, like Mulholland, had two great wins the first against Steven Webb of (Holy Trinity) 7-6 and Ian Byrne (Neilstown) 16-11. There was however, heartbreak for St. John Bosco and Sacred Heart Newry at the championships. Robert McGreevy of (Sacred Heart) won his first contest against Chris Mulligan (Clann Naofa) but narrowly lost his quarter final on a close scoreline of 12-8 against Noel Murphy (Macroom). Bosco’s Rory Lavery and Dean Mc Cabe were both defeated at the quarter final stage. McCabe lost out 15-6 to Thomas Carthy (Corinthian’s) and Lavery lost 18-8 against Dylan Carr (Ryston). Lavery had to overcome two difficult contests against former All- Ireland finalists Ryan Peake and Derek Potter to even reach the quarter finals which was a great achievement.
