Ireland beat a talented Scottish side 10-7 in Saturday’s Senior Cadet international meeting at the Rochestown Park Hotel in Cork

Brendan Irvine, Willie Donoghue and Ryan Green fired the hosts into a 3-0 lead from the opening three bouts in the Rebel County.

Jason McKay, Neil McClurkin and Michael McDonagh also recorded wins on the night.

Tipperary ace Jack Connolly, Caoimhin Hynes, Irish captain Luke Thomas and Brain Wall also had their hands raised in victory on the Watergrasshill BC hosted show.

“It was a top class international between two talented sides. Every bout was hotly contested and it was a great experience for both sides, said IABA Director of Boxing Dominic O’Rourke.

“I would like to thank Scotland for bringing over a very talented young side for Saturday’s international. The Cork County Board all the officials involved in the running of the international deserve enormous praise for their contribution to a great night of boxing.”

Ireland will be back at the Rochestown Park Hotel for a Senior Cadet clash with England on May 26th.

The IABA are using the internationals as part of their selection process for the European Junior Championships in Bulgaria in June.
