A young Killarney boxer has been crowned the All-Ireland champion 47kg Girl 3 for a second year running.

Alana O'Brien (14), daughter of Daniel and Michelle O'Brien from Hazelwood Drive in Ballyspillane, took up boxing just three years ago, after seeing Taylor fight in Tralee.

On Saturday night she was crowned the champion in her category in the National Stadium in Dublin after a brilliant Leinster final win a few weeks ago.

"Alana progressed with a great win and unfortunately her opponent for the All-Ireland never made it for some reason so Alana was crowned All-Ireland champion at 47kg Girl 3 for a second year running," her dad Daniel told the Killarney Advertiser.

"She now goes forward to Cadets in June to fight for a chance of a third Irish title and also represent Ireland in the European championship in Turkey in August.

"She is also travelling to Sweden on the 26 of this month to fight with the Irish team in the Golden Gloves competition, so big months ahead."
