Donnybrook 2020



Join us this March 13th to celebrate Pittsburgh’s proud Irish boxing heritage as we present the Peoples Gas Donnybrook 2020 sponsored by Peoples Gas.

This first-class exhibition of Pittsburgh’s top amateur boxers facing off against Ireland’s Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Carruth’s Drimnagh Boxing Club is a show not to be missed. These dedicated young adults will once again battle to retain ownership of the Ambassador’s Cup Trophy.

The event takes place in the Grand Hall at the Priory on Pittsburgh’s Northside. This elegant, upscale former cathedral serves as the perfect venue for what will be another capacity crowd.

Proceeds from the night will be shared by the Ireland Institute of Pittsburgh and Drimnagh Boxing Club.
