The Youth 5 Nations fencing competition took place last weekend (29th-30th June) at NUI Maynooth, Ireland. Northern Ireland was represented by fencers in all three weapons.
Northern Ireland Fencing Ltd. wishes to congratulate all NIR fencers on their performance, with particular mention to some fantastic individual performances, including:
1st place for Daniel Sigurdsson in Men’s Foil
3rd place for Charlotte Slater in Women’s Epee
Last 16 finishes for Catherine McConvey, Izzy Evans and Emma Yeaman (Women’s Foil), Alex Newell and Abdul Bedair (Men’s Epee), Jonathan Connery, Finn McMullan and Rowan Luney (Men’s Foil)
Northern Ireland earned some further exceptional results in Sunday’s team events with the Men’s Foil team winning silver (Daniel Sigurdsson (Captain), Rowan Luney, Finn McMullan, Jonathan Connery).
We hope that all NIR fencers are proud of their performance, and have gained some valuable experience to take forward in their fencing careers.
NIF would also like to thank the volunteers who accompanied the NI team, including Team Manager (Katie Gillespie), Assistant Team Manager (Barry Quigley), and other staff (Johnny Burnside and Geoffrey Corcoran).
