History and use
This boxing glove was worn by Irish boxer Brendan Irvine, silver medallist, in the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Mens Flyweight 52kg competition.

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) was the first international multi-sport event to implement a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Developed in consultation with members of the Yugambeh language group and Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, the GC2018 RAP was the result of a commitment from the Queensland Government and Games Partners to acknowledge, respect, and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through employment opportunities, procurement of goods and services, and the representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts and cultures.

GC2018 contributed to public discourse on reconciliation and the need to support the rights of Indigenous people in Australia and across the Commonwealth. Like the Brisbane 1982 Commonwealth Games, which provided the backdrop for a revolutionary movement to draw attention to Indigenous civil liberties and land rights, GC2018 presented Indigenous rights activists with an opportunity to broadcast the injustices and discrimination experienced by Indigenous Australians to both a national and international audience.

GC2018 implemented several community and equality-based initiatives, including a more inclusive para-sports programme and seven new events for women, making GC2018 the first Commonwealth Games to enable women participants to participate in as many medal events as men.
