COLAISTE DHULAIGH’S incredible record in the boxing arena keeps on reaching new highs as they captured their 33rd consecutive Crowley Cup Schools’ title at last night’s annual CDETB Novice Boxing Championship at Dublin’s National Boxing Stadium.

Dhulaigh, with their trusted mentor Joe Vaughan in the corner, also celebrated Laurie Hamilton being crowned ‘Boxer of the Tournament’ after the Dhulaigh student powered his way to a unanimous victory against Darragh O’Grady of St Kevin’s College.

Students from Colaiste Dhulaigh, St Kevin’s College, Kylemore College, Colaiste Eoin, Marino College and Plunket College fought in three one minute rounds at various weight categories from 39kg to 86kg.

Before the evening proceedings began Dhulaigh held a slender three point lead over St Kevin’s College, who on paper looked like the biggest threat to dethroning the reigning champions.

And so it proved with Kevin’s Nikita Pidgammy, Michael McCoy and Jordan Donoghue defeating Dhulaigh’s Josh Tighe, Justin O’Rourke and Nathan Finn in their respective bouts either side of a commanding win from Kylemore College’s Ian Carroll against Dhulaigh’s Shane Nolan in the Group A contests.

Group B threw up some interesting results as Kylemore’s Ola Adienka, Victor Keenan of Colaiste Eoin, Kevin’s Garret Murphy and Jordan Murphy of Marino College won titles at the expense of the title holders.

Wins for Neil Burke, Leon Bonny and Craig Dixon kept Dhulaigh’s noses in front but Kevin’s kept up the pressure with back to back wins from James Duff and Graham Fallon in Group C.

However the reigning champions stepped up to the mark winning five consecutive fights in Group D; the pick of the wins coming from Darren Tyrell (46kg), Luke Boylan (60kg) and Paddy Ellis (70kg).

Dhulaigh went into the final group of bouts with yet another schools’ title firmly under their belt but there was still six more titles up for grabs. Beka Machurishvili of Marino College fought with assurance to win the 66kg clash with Dhulaigh’s Dean Carey.

While Kevin’s Mitchell Wade and Michael Donoghue gusty displays won the 80kg and 86kg titles. But it was Hamilton’s flawless display inside the ring that stood out on this night of great entertainment.
