Nolan reaches last sixteen
Adam Nolan is through to the last 16 in the European Elite boxing championships in Bulgaria.
The Ballagh native, now a Garda based in Bray and boxing out of the Bray club, advanced by beating Turkey's Onder Sipal on a majority decision.
Nolan, who overcame a slight illness prior to his departure for the Europeans, turned in a storming final round to edge enough judges in his favour.
Having got this initial round behind him, Nolan will now be seeking to advance to the quarter-finals in what is a high-calibre welterweight division.
St. Joseph's/St. Ibar's clubman Dean Walsh had his opening bout yesterday (Monday) evening and also came through with flying colours.
