Hello, my name is Debbie O’ Reilly from Galway. I am a successful competitive athlete in Amateur Boxing and Powerlifting in Ireland.

I have a keen interest in sport and have competed in various sporting events from a young age until I found my love for amateur boxing in 2010.

More recently through my strength and conditioning program I discovered that I have a natural ability to lift heavy weights.  On the 14th of April 2014 I competed in the National Powerlifting Championships where I qualified for both European and World championships in Belfast and Moldova.  On the 10th May 2014 I won a European silver medal for Ireland at the European Powerlifting Championships.

Powerlifting comprises of 3 lifts: Bench Press, Deadlift and Squat.

My Achievements in Boxing

–          Current National Elite Senior Boxer IABA (Irish Amateur Boxing Association)

–          First and current female elite senior boxer for Galway.

–          National Boxing All Ireland Champion November 2013

–          International Boxing match against commonwealth games athlete and Olympian hopeful London May 2014

Upcoming events in Boxing

–          Several boxing tournaments throughout the year.

–          Prestigious Celtic box cup (International tournament)

–          International Boxing contests abroad

–          My aim is to win the National Elite Senior Boxing Championships 2015 and progress to the European & World Championships with the Irish Team.

Powerlifting IDFPA (Irish Drug Free Powerlifting Association) Achievements & Upcoming events 

–          National Powerliftng Championships April 2014

–          European Silver medal for Ireland at the European powerlifting championships.

–          World Powerlifting Championships Moldova (November 2014)

I train full time on top of a job as a Paramedic in Galway. I commit 100% of my free time to training in Powerlifting and Boxing and see a bright future in both sports with continued commitment. Unfortunately these are both amateur sports I am competing in and there are no grants to help me reach my full potential so I can go no further without some help.

My aim is to raise €1,500  to cover my travel, competition, training & equipment expenses.

I want to represent my country at the highest level and I believe I can bring a  world gold medal back to Ireland and hopefully break a world record along the way.

I would be forever grateful for any sponsorship so I can continue to pursue my dreams.
