ECSC Success in Ballykinler(N.I) Vintage and Target Rifle Competitions

E.C.S.C. Success at N.I. Open


ECSC’s Cathal C. completed a virtually clean sweep of the Classic Rifle events in the Northern Ireland Open at Ballykinler over the weekend 15th – 16th September.  He won all the individual matches except one and duly went on to take the Blair Mayne Trophy for the Championship, pictured below.  Cathal’s discipline is the classic service rifle as issued; he used a fine old 1910 Swedish Mauser (6.5x55mm calibre) for the competition.










His colleague Sandy W competed in the Target Rifle discipline.  He was less successful, but still got a few 2nd & 3rd placings in individual matches.  He qualified for the final and finished 4th in the Championship
