It was a disappointing end to a great tournament for two young Donegal boxers at the Irish Boy/Girl Junior Cadet Championships on Sunday in the National Stadium in Dublin.
Twin Towns Boxing Club’s Caoimhin Connolly and Letterkenny BC’s David Tennyson were both defeated in their respective finals.
Caoimhin Connolly was defeated 3-2 by Kalib Walsh of Wexford CBS in the 40kg final after he beat Paddy Nevin in the semi-final on Saturday.
David Tennyson of Letterkenny Boxing Club was also beaten in his 48kg final by Christian Doyle after winning his quarter-final and semi-final bouts on Friday and Saturday against Con Desmond of Bantry ABC and Anthony Cash of Portlaoise BC.
It was a great achievement for both fighters to reach the national finals but they will be disappointed not to get the victory.
