Lee Harkin into cadet semi-finals


ILLIES Golden Gloves lad Lee Harkin is through to the semi-finals of the National Junior Cadet Championships.

Harkin, a national boy champion in 2013 who took victory at the Ulster 9 Counties in December, overcame Thurles boxer Michael Doyle in a 50kgs quarter-final on Saturday at the National Stadium.

Harkin lost out in a recent Boy 3 semi-final in Dublin, did enough to overcome Doyle and the Inishowen man is now into the last four, where he is joined by Cillian Spillane (Trojan), Sean McGinty (Silverbridge) and James Mongan (Bay City).


Harkin scored a majority decision win and is back to the capital this weekend for his semi-final.
