2017 has been an impressive year for Loughshore Boxing Club. Established only a year ago, the club has got off to a great start with a number of awards in junior categories, and most recently three All Ireland medals in the Seniors.
The achievements of the club were recognised tonight by the Mid Ulster District Council who now plan to invite the three All Ireland champions to a Civic Reception. 
Sinn Féin’s Ronan McGinley nominated the boxers for their awards, and after the meeting said:
“Boxing has had a proud history around the shores of Lough Neagh. For a period there was no local club, but Loughshore ABC has filled that gap. Not only have the committee and volunteers worked hard to get the premises and club up to scratch, they have helped bring home the silverware. 
Most recently, Kayleigh Magee, Brian Cassidy and Dean Scullion brought home All Ireland medals, a wonderful personal achievement, and they are great role models and ambassadors for the club”.
Cllr McGinley, himself a club member and member of its committee, continued:
“I asked my colleagues on the council to recognise Lougshore ABC as it’s hard to believe the achievements of the club and its Boxers in just under a year. Keep your eyes out for this club in the future, more champions are on the way”.
