Aoife O’ Rourke reaches EUBC Women’s Final
All in Castlerea Community School wish past pupil Aoife O’Rourke every success in the 2019 EUBC Women’s European Boxing Championships. She follows Katie Taylor in being the second ever Irish woman to reach this level.
Aoife is guaranteed to win at least a silver medal after her middleweight semi-final against Russian opponent Anastasia Shamonova at the European Women’s Elite Championships in Madrid.
The Castlerea native outclassed Shamonova, the current World and Olympic Youth champion.
Aoife now progresses to the final against Poland’s Elzebieta Wojcik.
Best wishes also to her sister Lisa who competes next week.
Sisters Lisa and Aoife O’Rourke – both outstanding Women’s Boxing Champions.
