Fencing - East of Ireland Open Results

Congratulations to Grosvenor Fencing Club which was well represented at the East of Ireland Open which took place at University College Dublin on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th February. 

In the épée category Lower 6th pupil Samuel Gourley performed impressively to finish 22nd out of a field of 47 competitors while Jake Wylie, also Lower 6th, was placed 18th out of 31 entrants in the sabre event.

In addition Tony Eve and Gareth Reid finished 8th and 10th respectively in the men’s foil while Upper 6th pupil Stephen Brown took silver in the same competition, narrowly missing out on his third Irish trophy following a narrow 15-14 reverse in the final.

Well done to all of Grosvenor’s pupils who competed so well at the event – we wish them the best of luck throughout the remainder of the season.
