From an early age, Kickboxing has always been a massive part of Fainche’s life, with both her father and uncle representing Ireland in a number of World Championships.

Fainche has followed in their successful footsteps and has already won numerous medals, winning bronze at the Bristol Open in 2019 and the Irish Open in 2020.

She is also currently ranked second in Ireland for her weight category.

Unfortunately, Fainche was not ranked this year but she remarked on the overall experience and commented on how proud she was to represent Ireland and get the opportunity to meet similar people, who share the same level of passion for the sport.
