CúChulainn Archers members have had a busy couple of weeks travelling and competing in all parts of Ireland.

Four members of the club competed in the World Record Status WA18 in Lisburn Archery Club. There, Darryl Wilson came away with the gold medal and a new Northern Ireland Senior Compound Record for the Double FITA 18 competition. Paul McClelland got the gold in the men’s Masters Compound category.

JoAnn Bell took the gold in the women’s Masters Compound category and Peter Gilmore took the bronze in the men’s Masters Barebow category.

Millennium Archers held a WA 18 and two CúChulainn Archers members attended with great result. Brendan Forde took the silver medal in the senior men’s Recurve and Peter Gilmore took the gold medal in the masters’ men’s Barebow.
