Veterans Celtic Challenge 2016 - Results

The 2016 Celtic Challenge was held in Dublin over the weekend of 23rd/24th July at DCU hosted by Ireland Fencing.  Veteran fencers from various Celtic nations took part in competitions over both days with their individual results being accumulated to decide the overall result for the Dragon Trophy.

After two busy days of competition (within an excellent Gala Diner on the Saturday evening), Wales returned home as the overall winners.  

Scotland had a incomplete team but still managed a credible 3rd place - points for the overall team trophy required a team of 3 fencers in each weapon.  We would have loved to have a complete squad, if you are over 40 (or will be soon), please contact so that you can be added to the list of Veteran fencers who should be considered for selection for the Scottish Team.
