BIOGRAPHY

Aoife originally took up boxing to get fitter for inter-county football but quickly emerged as world class, winning silver at her first major (European U22s) in 2018. She has a phenomenal 27-1 record since making her Olympic Games debut in 2021 where she lost to China’s two-time silver medallist Qian Li in the last 16. Her only loss since was to USA’s Naomi Graham in the 2022 World Championships. This year she won her third consecutive European title in Budapest (2019, 2022 & 2024) and overcame Qian Li en route to the prestigious Strandja title in February. She secured early qualification for Paris by winning the 75kg at last year’s European Games in Krakow.
