Fiona Haldane Local Hero

Congratulations to Fiona Haldane on being awarded the Local Hero Award at the Belfast Telegraph Sports Personality Awards.  This rounds off a fantastic year for the Northern Ireland Veteran Fencer as she also won a Bronze Medal at the World Veteran Fencing Championships in Austria.

“Fiona Haldane is the type of inspirational person that Northern Ireland sport needs. At 62, the Ulster woman is still competing as a top fencer, becoming the Northern Ireland and Irish Women’s Epee champion in 2012.”
