Donnybrook Boxing Tournament US Vs. Ireland, Returns to Pittsburgh

Donnybrook Boxing Tournament Returns to Pittsburgh
Ireland Vs. U.S.A. Highlights the Fundraiser for Ireland Institute

Ireland’s only Men’s Olympic Boxing Champion, Michael Carruth, is preparing his Drimnagh (Dublin) Club for their March tournament, their fourth visit to Pittsburgh. As the city greets St. Patrick’s season, and the Pittsburgh St. Patrick’s Day Parade is the next day (it’s not just one day anymore), Carruth’s return is highly anticipated.

The Pittsburgh Donnybrook is an eleven-bout amateur boxing match between the Drimnagh Club and Pittsburgh area amateur boxers. Young men and women square off on Friday, March 10that the Priory’s Grand Hall on Pittsburgh’s Historic Northside. The team with the most wins captures the Ambassador’s Cup.

The event benefits the Ireland Institute of Pittsburgh, a local non-profit dedicated to peace and reconciliation in Ireland and partnership between Pittsburgh and Ireland. The event also benefits the Drimnagh Club and Pittsburgh area amateur boxing organizations.
