No, the major trophies in fencing are not called anything like the ‘Johnstone Paint Trophy’: they have a bit more of the ‘rarified air’ about their titles. Case in point this past weekend when Loreto Abbey in Dalkey welcomed ladies and gentlemen (and quite a few padawan) from all over Ireland to compete for the Lord Killanin Trophy. And we are proud to say that the Conlethian contingent, both Junior and Senior, absolutely cleaned up! Myles Moriarty-Smyth and Matthew Sherlock took Bronze in the Under 10 Mixed Foil and Luke Sherlock achieved Gold in the Under 12 Mixed Foil. And Claudio Sosa won gold in the Minor Mixed Foil with James Moriarty-Smyth finishing just out of the medals. A splendid performance from all involved and a fabulous start to the 2016 -2017 season!
