There was more electric scenes at the National Stadium on Saturday afternoon as Monkstown BC's Kenneth Doyle added the All Ireland Under 22 Championship title to his All Ireland Seniors win.
Kenneth (still only aged 18) booked his seat on the Irish Team heading to the upcoming European U22 Championships in Romania in March 2018. The IABA were using this championship as a selection process for the European U22 Championship. He will now enrol in the High Performance Training Camp at the National Sports Campus in Abbotstown.
He is no stranger to tough training and making sacrifices - there was no selection boxes over the Christmas for Doyle as he was in the middle of his training preparations for these championships, he also continues his studies at Sallynoggin College of Further Education where he is studying Sports & Leisure Management.
The Irish U22 championships have been ongoing for the past 3 weekends at the National Stadium. Doyle had to overcome 3 familiar opponents to lift the Light Welter 64kg Title.
