DCU Intervarsities Saturday 12th November


It’s been a successful weekend for the NUIG archery club. The long bus journey to DCU intervarsities proved worthwhile after we came home with all archers having performed exceptionally well. We had blast with the other teams, discussed techniques and welcomed the opportunity to get our beginners comfortable with the idea of shooting under competition conditions. The individual results are:

Helen Lacey – 1st  place Intermediate Women’s Recurve

Niamh Meyler – 1st place Advanced Women’s Barebow

Mary Aherne – 2nd place Intermediate Women’s Recurve

James Burke – 2nd place Intermediate Men’s Recurve


Our archers also placed well as a team:

Recurve Team – 2nd place

Mixed Team – 3rd place


Many thanks to our Captain Ruairí, Vice Captain Josh, Beginner Trainer Helen and our amazing Coach Vic for putting so much effort into making our club the best that it can be. Wish us luck at Maynooth this Saturday the 19th!
