The Irish Amateur Boxing Association have named a twelve strong squad for the European Schoolboy Championships in England next month
The Championships will take place at Nelson Landbase in Portsmouth between September 2-9.
Ireland won a hat trick of medals at last years European Schoolboy Championships after Golden Cobras Anthony Upton, Glens Tommy Kiely, and Fergal McCrory from the Clonoe club all claimed bronze in the Ukraine.
Cork strawweight Roy Carroll, from the Glen BC, will be hoping to make it a country and club double when he competes in Portsmouth next month and club coach Robbie O'Driscoll believes that the young Leesider will give a good account of himself in Portsmouth.
He said: "Roy had fantastic season last year and he has been boxing superbly over the last twelve months and we have every confidence in him. We would like to wish the entire Irish squad the best of luck in Portsmouth."
