Sinead a native of Inchicore, Dublin, Ireland, began boxing when she was 8 years of age in Crumlin boxing club. 

For many years Sinead fought as a competitive boxer, winning five national titles but became frustrated with the lack of progression in her career after nearly a decade of competition, so in 2015 she switched codes and began training MMA.


This move to MMA has proved to be a successful one. Training under SBG coach John Kavanagh and training with the likes of Paddy Holohan and Conor Mcgregor has helped Sinead hone her craft. 

The proof is in the pudding and since turning professional Sinead has won four out of five of her professional fights (4-1-0)(win-loss-draw) an impressive tally in anyones book.

Her next scheduled fight is August 25th at Bellator 182 New York against Arlene Blencowe.

Nicknamed 'KO', Sinead is determined to live up to her reputation and bring home another victory.

A friend and sparring partner of Conor McGregor, Sinead shares her excitement at the announcement of the Mayweather fight and gives her early predictions on the outcome of the match up. 

Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor

Sinead and Paddy both agree that Floyd has never experienced anybody like Conor McGregor, with his sharp tongue, relentless posturing and unorthodox fighting style.

I trained with this fella and he’s going to fight Floyd Mayweather, its just crazy and I cannot wait until the first press conference.
