Jamie O'Rourke from New Ross is the 2019 G2 41kg All Ireland champion and is now on the Irish School Girls Development Squad.

Jamie, who boxes out of CBS Boxing Club Wexford, had to overcome some difficult competitions to become an All Ireland champion. Her first competition was a semi-final with Shakira McCrudden from Riverside BC in May.

Jamie boxed her way through this tough competition, giving it her all and won on a split decision 3:2.

Jamie's next competition was the final on May 17 with Meabh Delaney from Swords BC, and Jamie won on a unanimous decision 5:0 to become a national champion to the absolute delight of her coaches from CBS Boxing Club Michael Richardson, Richard Hore and Pauline Kavanagh.
