Sullivan Fencing: 2024 East of Ireland OpenFencing Tournament

The East of Ireland Open, the 5th of Ireland’s 6 Senior National Circuit fencing events, was held on the weekend before Easter on 23rd & 24th March in University College Dublin. Three SU fencers took part: Amelia Penny, Cassidy Ogle and Myles Wilkinson. Also taking part were 2 ex-SUFC fencers, now fencing for Oxford University: Victoria Morris and Alexander Penny.

 

In the women’s foil, held on the Saturday, Victoria and Cassidy both made the quarter-finals, Cassidy winning her last 16 fight 15-12, Victoria winning hers 15-13. Victoria was placed 7th overall, Cassidy 8th, while Amelia finished 12th after a narrow 13-15 defeat in the last 16. The men’s foil event on the Sunday saw Myles and Alexander lose tough last 32 fights, Alexander finishing 17th and Myles 24th. For Myles and Cassidy, as under 16s, this was valuable experience in their progression from junior to adult competition.

 

The next event for SUFC fencers will be the Irish National Championships in Dublin on the 20th and 21st April.
