Christina for Youth Olympics Qualifiers
Christina Desmond of Coolavokig, who has strong links with Cill na Martra, Baile Mhúirne and Macroom and won Silver for Ireland at the Amateur World Youth and Junior Boxing Championships in Albena in 2013, is back in Bulgaria, this time at Sofia, as she prepares for the Qualifiers for the Youth Olympics. Everybody in the Lee Valley and further afield is cheering for Christina, particularly her dad, Chroistóir, her extended family, Mary Cronin, Magnolia Gardens, Lissarda and her trainers and all the members of Macroom Boxing Club. Go n-éirí go geal leat, Cristín.
