Sullivan Fencers Win at Irish National Fencing Club Championship

On Saturday 17 September 2016 three Sullivan fencers, Emily Maginn (Yr13), Ella Reid (Yr13) and Erin Maginn (Yr11), plus club coach, travelled to Dublin for the 2016 Irish National Fencing Club Championships.

This is a team event, run using the Olympic format where in each bout, all 3 fencers in both teams fence each other in sequence up to 45 points. Sullivan entered the women’s foil competition and was the only school club in the whole tournament, all the others being either senior or university clubs.

The SU team had a shaky start to the competition with a narrow loss to Dublin University, initially falling well behind, but then gradually gathering confidence to come back to lose by only 3 points. After that it was winning all the way, with convincing victories against top Irish clubs such as University College Dublin and Pembroke (a senior independent club from Dublin) to take the overall women’s foil competition win.

My congratulations to Emily, Erin and Ella for a great result and a brilliant start to Sullivan Fencing Club’s new fencing year.
