Aoife’s first sport was gaelic football (her late grandfather Dan was GAA president) but she took to boxing immediately, winning the first of her six Irish senior titles in 2017. In 2018 she won silver at the European U22s and made her debut at World Seniors. In 2019 she won gold at the European Championships in Madrid (something only Katie Taylor has previously achieved). She took bronze at the world-class Strandja tournament in Sofia in February 2021 and bronze at the European Qualifying Tournament in Paris in June where her quarter-final victory over Poland’s Eizbieta Wokik (whom she beat in the 2019 European final) clinched her Olympic qualification.
