CEO Ann Sheppard often talks about the storied history which fencing has at the school, and rightly she does, as it goes back to the very foundation of St. Conleth’s in 1939 and contains chapters about national champions and Olympic competitors. Perhaps St. Conleth’s fencing is entering a new golden age as the names Moriarty, Sherlock and Sosa continue to dominate the Irish national junior fencing scene.
This past Sunday saw the Conleth’s contingent in Belfast once again; this time for Round 3 of the 2017-2018 Northern Ireland Junior Foil Series. All our young fencers acquitted themselves well, ensuring another medal ‘full house’ was achieved!
