Fencer Jamie reaches European championships

Fencer Jamie Simpson

Lower sixth pupil Jamie Simpson has sealed his place at next year’s European fencing championships in Austria.

To be held in the city of Klangenfurt, Jamie gained the minimum qualification to represent Ireland at the tournament after finishing 19th at the recent Ankara European cadet circuit event in Turkey.

Jamie is a regular at the School’s fencing club and will continue to take part in other ECC events in the hope of gaining another last 64 finish, meaning he would be eligible for the forthcoming world championships in Jordan.
