Wrestlers from Redhog Wrestling Club took 4 Gold, 2 Silver and 1 Bronze at the Northern Ireland Freestyle Wrestling Championships on Saturday 30 April in Carrickfergus.

John O’Rawe from Carrickfergus, former Commonwealth Games competitor and more recently, wrestling coach at the Delhi Games 2010, is also the National Coach and Talent Development Coach for Northern Ireland and had this to say after the event,“Out of our team of 8 wrestlers, 2 debuted at the competition, Ryan Kelly taking the bronze medal and Michael Redmond who competed superbly narrowly missing a medal”.

“The most difficult thing is stepping onto the mat and our wrestlers excelled in their weight categories, congratulations to all the medallists, Declan Dalton the undisputed All Ireland Champion, Robert Winchester, Shane Webb and Andrew Purssell all took gold for the Northern Ireland Title, Cameron Burns and Glenn Elliott took the silver and our bronze winner was Ryan Kelly”.

Redhog Wrestling Club established in 2007 by Coach O’Rawe is Northern Ireland’s only club to have senior wrestlers competing in international tournaments and accurately described by many, as an active cross-community wrestling club with venues in York Road in Belfast, Lisburn City, Belfast City Centre and Poleglass.

Many people have heard of our club’s success and want to be a part of it because we provide the best structured coaching, athlete development from grass-roots, talent identification, athlete support for all ages, national and international competition opportunities and effective recognition of achievements.
