posted 9 Mar 2012, 08:38 by CYCC Cork

Irish Bouldering Championships winner, Dominic Burns has been awarded the Northern Ireland Young Sports Personality of the Year! This is fantastic news and we join Ireland's climbing community in congratulating Dom in this, his latest, award! I think we have become accustomed to seeing individuals from Northern Ireland lead the way in golf but this is a great recognition for Dom, Eddie Cooper and the our friends in the Northern Ireland Youth Climbing Team.

Dom's achievement will set the stage for what is possible in climbing in Ireland and we are sure it will propel him onto great achievements at home and aboard.

Well done from all your friend in the CYCC!

Oh.. and a youtube video of Dom climbing at the lead comp in Dingle in late 2011.
