Clongowes Wood College hosted the inaugural Interschool Fencing Championship on Saturday.
All schools involved in the 2017/18 pilot submitted teams of four, fencing foil.
In just its first few months, the FI Interschool Programme has already recruited eight schools across counties Dublin, Kildare, Laois, Tipperary and Antrim. Led by coaches Patrick Dight and Katie Arup, the Interschool Programme teaches fencing to all first-year pupils at participating schools. A TY add-on is also available.
If your school is interested in joining, contact Patrick Dight at firstname.lastname@example.org
