From The Mall to Montenegro!

Posted on : November 15, 2021

Sligo Grammar School is very proud of 6th year Kyle Keaney who represented Ireland at the European Kickboxing Championships in the Sportski Centar in Budva, Montenegro last week. He had a fantastic week, competing in the Light Contact competition. He started by beating the Spanish contender, going on to meet the a bouncing Bulgarian in the quarter finals who he also beat. Then he was up against a strong, restless Russian competitor who eventually overcame him. Nevertheless Kyle emerged with a Bronze Medal in the European Kickboxing Championships. Kyle is a member of Collooney Kickboxing Club and, with five others,  brought European medals home to Sligo. What a fantastic achievement for Kyle and his team mates, and well deserved after all the hard work and dedication.
