SBG Clonmel was well represented with Frank Meagher and Jason Hahessy both winning Gold in their categories. They worked their way through stacked divisions beating everyone. Ben Sweetman took Silver at his first international competition, while Alex Connolly and Alan Coughlan took home Bronze in their respective categories.
