Conlan also scooped the Best Boxer Award and Ward became the first Irish male boxer to win two European Elite gold medals. Ireland also finished in second spot in the medals table.

Combined with Dean Walsh’s bronze medal win and Adam Nolan finishing in the top six, four further places were claimed for the World Championships in Samokov.

It was a successful first major tournament as Ireland Manager for Peter O'Donnell.
