DUNFANAGHY ABC puncher Bernie McDonagh has won his third Irish title.
McDonagh is the new Irish Boy 4 52kgs champion after scrapping his way to a fine win over Thomas McDonnell in this evening’s final.
At the National Stadium, McDonagh edged out the Bay City man McDonnell in a cracking finale.
When the sums were totted at the end, McDonagh took a majority 3-2 split decision from the judges.
Last weekend, McDonagh stopped Michael Lawrence in his semi-final with McDonnell powering past Criostoir Browne.
McDonagh was the only Donegal man to make it through to this weekend’s finals – and it was glory for the Dunfanaghy man.
Previously, McDonagh won an Irish Boy 3 44.5kgs crown last year having been the Boy 1 36kgs champion in 2016.
McDonagh has followed in his father’s footsteps with Martin McDonagh also a former Irish champion for the Dunfanaghy club.Tags:
