Tredagh's Grace Conway gets the decision against reigning champion Tegan Farrell from Mayo in the 2024 All Ireland Championships in Roscrea.

Just five days after she returned from the European Championships in Croatia with a silver medal, Tredagh Boxing Academy boxer Grace Conway continued on her medal winning journey by becoming All Ireland champion for the sixth consecutive year.

The All Ireland Championships took place in Roscrea County Roscommon and Grace was fighting against the best in the country in her weight category with four All Ireland Champions hungry for medals.

In the semi-final Grace boxed last year’s All Ireland Champion from Mayo in a fantastic three round bout. Despite a fast and furious start from her opponent Grace’s impeccably timed combinations caught the eyes of the judges to win by unanimous decision and book her place the All Ireland final the next day.

In the final Grace faced four times All Ireland Champion Tegan Farrelly in an action packed bout with Farrelly pressing the fight from start to finish. However, with her exceptional timing, range and unforgiving backhand, Grace was well able for anything the Mayo woman could throw t her.

In the end it was a unanimous points decision from all five judges and the Dunleer girl was crowned All Ireland Champion for the sixth time in a row.

With her six All Ireland Titles and two European Silver medals Grace is Tredagh’s most highly decorated boxer and nobody will begrudge her taking a well-earned break after what has been a hectic few months.

Her next appointment is on Friday 24th May at 7.00 pm when the club are hosting a homecoming for Grace which take place in the in the function room in An Grianan in Termonfeckin.
