The Irish National Championships, senior and cadet (U17), were held last weekend at NUI at Maynooth. The men’s foil events took place on the Saturday with BFC fencers in both the seniors and cadets. In the seniors Callum made the quarter finals, while Peter, Theo and David all finished in the last 16. In the MF cadets Theo won bronze. The women’s foil and men’s epee events were on the Sunday, with four BFC fencers taking part. Victoria took gold in the seniors without losing a bout, while Rachel was 5th and Emily 8th. Rachel won gold in the WF cadets, Emily finishing 6th. In men’s epee Gerry made the last 32 in 30th position. Congratulations to Victoria on retaining her Senior Championship trophy for the 2nd year running, to Rachel on taking the Cadet Championship and to Theo on his Cadet MF bronze medal. And well done all BFC fencers who took part. Full results at http://www.irishfencingnationals.com/home/scoring.
