Congratulations to Michael Nolan for winning this year’s league! Michael trains with us for 2 years now and during this time he already won several medals as well as achieved 2nd place in 2016 IHFL (Irish Historical Fencing League). Impressive progress Michael, looking forward to see you at the international HEMA scene soon!
Also, congratulations to Joe Hooton for reaching 3rd place – a very solid achievement that will pays off well in 2017 I recon!
And also Rob Luknar, our new recruit who despite joining in the middle of the season managed to score honorable 5th place! Well done!
Now, with all the formalities over – new season of our internal League will start in January and IHFL tournament calendar will kick off from April so get ready! Make your plans and follow your goals!
IHFL has ended with a brilliant Belfast Bladeworks that took place last weekend and after 4 tournaments (Cork, Galway, Wexford and Belfast) in 2016 the overall results are as follows:
1st place: Matthew Malcolm of Medieval Combat Group 2nd place: Michael Nolan of Cork Blademasters 3rd place: Adrian Shwapka of Leitrim Longswords
Congratulations to all the winners and to HEMA Ireland and all clubs involved in organization of this year’s League. It was no easy task but we managed to pull it off nicely and I have to say we have achieved our goal – the overall fencing quality has definitely improved which means we’re ready to put the bar up even higher for the 2017!
Bladefast Bladeworks Tournament was simply spectacular – congratulations to Matthew for winning the gold again, Myself for winning silver and to Adrian for getting the Bronze in an epic fight against Michael 🙂
