Irish Student Individuals / Irish Nationals Championships

Student Individuals:

The student individuals were held over the 3rd/4th of March at NUI Maynooth. Although the competition was stiff, Trinity’s fencers did their club proud. DUFC took medals in both Men’s Sabre and Women’s Foil, with Jack McHugh taking the gold in sabre and Jenny Jennings and Geraldine Davies the gold and silver, respectively. Li Dong put on a strong showing in all three weapons, coming sixth, fifth and sixth in epée, foil and sabre.

Nationals Championships:

The Irish Nationals Championships were held on 24th/25th of March at NUI Maynooth. Traditionally one of the largest competitions of the year, the standard was suitably high. Even still, DUFC managed to come away with two medals, with Tal Coyle placing 3rd in Women’s Epée and Liz Fitzgerald 2nd in Women’s Sabre.
