The Offensive Continues…

Our fencers obviously did not fill up on too many mince pies this Christmas break, as they have picked up right where they left off in 2016, parrying and pointing their way up the Irish ranks.  Robert Smyth reports:   Saturday saw the St. Conleth’s fencing contingent head North once more,  this time for Round 3 of the Northern Ireland Junior Foil Series. As is customary, they returned with a fine hoard of medals:  Myles Moriarty-Smyth took Bronze in the Mixed Under 10s, with Luke Sherlock and Claudio Sosa taking Gold in Under 12 and Under 14 Boys respectively.  Mathew Sherlock attained 7th place in Mixed Under 10s while James  Moriarty-Smyth ended the day in 5th spot, narrowly missing medal position in Under 14 Boys: a tremendous result given his recent six week stint on crutches!
