2015 Pittsburgh Donnybrook: The Sweet Science On St. Patrick’s Day

1 of 4

Who Is The Best? Are they here in the Land of Three Rivers or from across the pond? In the Sweet Science, the answer can come in the blink of an eye from a well placed uppercut.

Boxing fans across Western Pennsylvania can head over to the North Side Tuesday, March 17 to the Grand Hall at the Priory Hotel for the second annual Pittsburgh Donnybrook.

The St. Patrick’s Day event is a boxing exhibition for the Ambassador’s Cup and features mostly amateur teens from Pittsburgh and Ireland.

Dublin’s Michael Carruth, who captured a gold medal at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games as a welterweight, is the coach for Team Ireland. He has had multiple requests over time to bring his team of amateur boxers to the United States, but the first one he agreed to was from the organizers of Pittsburgh’s Donnybrook.

He joined the 82nd Airborne Infrantry Division of the Army when he turned 18. After serving his country, Mook became a police officer and is currently a detective for the Pittsburgh Police.

    Proceeds from the 2015 Donnybrook benefits local community programs, including the Western Pennsylvania Police Athletic League, the Ireland Institute of Pittsburgh and the Hibernian Celtic Athletic Fund, all of whom are responsible in part for helping to make this event possible.

    Part of the evening’s bouts will be broadcast by PCNC – the Pittsburgh Cable News Channel. Everyone will have the opportunity to see who can stick and move around the ring.
