Hi from Clare

Postby Davide Salvador on Thu Dec 11, 2008 3:46 pm

Hi All,
my name is Davide, and I'm an Italian living in Ireland (by two years now) - and looking forward continuing to live here for a long while.
Back in Italy I've been a member of different groups of Medieval Fencing (what we call 'Scrima') for some years, and learned to fight with quarterstaff, single-hand sword and one-and-a-half-hand sword (I've translated word-by-word - don't know if you use a different term in english).
I've not had any training in the past few years - no physical activity at all to be honest - so I'm surely quite out of practice. Still, I would like to get once more close to the world of historic reenactment, particularly swordfighting.
I'm living in Ennis, Co. Clare - is there any group in this area - or generically people with my same interest?

Hi Davide,
Welcome to the boards. We would be closest to you as far a being a group in your area and doing Pre-historic to late Medieval, mostly. You can check us at www.moghroith.org

We are also well out of practice and unfit :( but would be willing to hook up with you some day in Ennis for a coffee and a chat. Who knows it might inspire some training to happen.

We would just say "Hand and a half sword'" btw. :)

Dave Mooney.

This post is what, 2008 so my reply comes 6 years late.....but, I'm a sword instructor and I'm moving to Clare with a view to open a salle in Ennis. I teach side sword, sword and dagger, sword and shield, staff, partizan, savarte and pugilism.

If you are still out there and are still interested in training. get in touch with me.
