Ward, Conlon & Walsh through to Euro semi finals


Three fighters on Peter O'Donnell's Ireland Team, Joe Ward, Michael Conlan and Dean Walsh are all through to the semi-finals of the European Championships in Bulgaria.

The trio are all now guaranteed to return home with at least a bronze medal this week after winning their quarter-finals on Wednesday.

All three have also secured a place at this year's World Championships in Qatar, which will also double as an Olympic qualifier.

However, there was disappointment for Adam Nolan, who lost his quarter-final in the welterweight division.

The semi finals take place on Friday
