Fencers Finishing Strongly!

The Moriarty-Smyth and Sherlock brothers have continued their lunges up the junior fencing rankings!  Once again both bands of  brothers performed extremely well last week at the Irish Fencing Federation’s Junior National Championships, hosted at Loreto Abbey in Dalkey. The older boys fenced in the Under 12 Mixed Foil with James taking 3rd place and Bronze while Luke narrowly missed a medal spot and ended the day in 5th spot. His younger brother Mathew achieved 1st Place and Gold in the Under 9 Mixed. Myles chose to compete in the Under 10 Mixed Foil, ending the tournament in 7th place and winner of the Youngest Fencer Medal.  Young Myles is coming up fast through the ranks, building upon his European Fencing debut in April,  as he was recently awarded the Silver medal for his 2015/2016 season ranking of 2nd for Irish Under 10s.  Up next is the Round 6 of the Northern Ireland Junior Foil series which will mark the end of a tremendous season for all four boys!
