Irish University Clubs Covid-19 Relief

Posted 12th May 2021
Author UL Fencing Club

As you may be aware, the current Covid-19 wave in India is at crisis level. We are proposing a fundraiser challenge to raise funds and awareness. We are urging all clubs and societies to take part and donate what you can. The cases in India are increasing rapidly on a daily basis. Unfortunately, hospitals are not equipped to deal with the high number of patients. The development of variants of Covid-19 may have a serious effect, both in India and globally. We have decided to run a ‘Tag and Donate’ fundraiser on Instagram in aid of Oxfam via our GoFundMe, 'Irish University Clubs Covid-19 Relief.' Oxfam is providing PPE to frontline health workers and supplying oxygen to those who need it most.

To take part:

  • 1. Share a picture of a funny/happy memory with your club or society on your Instagram story or page
  • 2. Donate to Oxfam via the GoFundMe link
  • 3. Use the Hashtag #IrishClubsCovidRelief and challenge three friends by tagging them.

Club AGM last Thursday

Posted 28th Feb 2020
Author Fencing Club

Last Thursday the 27th of February we had our EGM to fill vacant committee positions, discuss the future of the club and to plan some fun events!

We elected 3 new committee members, we now have a full core committee  again! A few members on the committee had to give up their positions over the past year for various reasons so there were openings for Treasurer, PRO, and an Ordinary Committee position!

It was great to see members (and especially first years) applying for positions, this showed that members are interested in keeping to club running and progressing. 

Thanks to everyone who applied, you make sure we have a strong, productive committee for the year! 

No more training this semester

Posted 29th Nov 2019
Author Joey Corbett

Hey everyone,

Unfortunately, this week was the last official training we have this semester, due to the PESS building being used for exams. We had a great time fencing this year. I hope to see everyone next semester, but of course we'll be sad to see some of our international students go!

We'll try to arrange some small training sessions over the holiday, if anyone is still in Limerick and interested!

Best of luck,

Joey,

Secretary, UL Fencing

UL Fencing comes second in Schull Novice

Posted 13th Nov 2019
Author Joey Corbett

UL Fencing sent 3 of our members to the Schull Novice tournament in UCC, Cork on the 2/11/19.

We are delighted to announce that one of our members, Katie Gurnee, came second in the women's épeé tournament. After such a nailing biting final with both fencers at equal points, we are so proud of Katie!

Cian Rowan and Joey Corbett also did very well for their first tournament, coming 16th and 15th respectively. Both won their first round of matches!

Overall, we did very well at Schull Novice this year, especially since UL Fencing has not gone to a competition in over 3 years! We hope this is the first of many!
