Signs of Autumn in D4: frappuccino sales plummet, Kiely’s sells more hot port, the DART is delayed because of ‘leaf-fall’ (Could not see that coming!) and Conlethian fencers start arriving at school with bags full of swag! This time, the well-travelled merry swordsmen were closer to home as the St. Conleth’s fencing contingent competed in the Dublin-based Lord Killanin Cup, culminating in an all-Conlethian final in the Under 14 Foil! Results as follows: Under 10s: Myles Moriarty-Smyth – 1st Place and Gold Medal; Mathew Sherlock – Joint 3rd Place and Bronze Medal; Under 14s: Claudio Sosa -1st Place and Gold Medal James Moriarty-Smyth – 2nd Place and Silver Medal; Luke Sherlock – 5th Place. And there is promise of more treasure as, next weekend, James and Myles head to the UK to compete in Newcastle as part of the Leon Paul Junior Series. Stay tuned!
