2nd leg of the IHFL ran very smoothly thanks to perfect organization by the crew from Dublin Hema Club, we had a few tournament newbies who fenced very well even against League veteran’s so big congratulations to them for standing on their own!
From my own perspective it seems that the overall level of fencing has improved compared to last year’s tournaments so the IHFL goal has been reached! We are producing more new fencers and increasing quality of our fencing year after year!
3rd Leg of the IHFL will take place in Wexford on the 1st of September 2018 so let’s get ready!
