BOXING | Gary Óg wins silver at IABA Championships in Dublin
Teenage boxer Gary Óg Conway, a member of the cross-border St Pat’s Tug-of-War Club, was in action fought at the IABA National Championship finals recently where he brought home a silver medal.
Gary Óg, who hails from Armagh, won his Ulster title at the start of April to qualify for the National Championships in the National Stadium over the Easter holidays.
The final was his third match of the week, after winning his quarter-finals and semi-final earlier in the week and he left with a well deserved silver medal. This is Gary’s first year of competitive boxing and it is a credit to him and his trainers, Seán, Hugh Óg and Gary Conway for getting him to a national final at this early stage of his boxing career.
