Firstly the author would like to apologise for the tardiness of this article as I know many of you have been waiting with bated breath, worried and anxious even about its whereabouts. Of course I jest, but here it is. Over the August bank holiday weekend just gone, a merry band of archers took part in the Society of Irish Field Archers (SIFA), National Championships in the woods at Boarmans Hill, Ashroe just outside the village of Murroe, Co. Limerick. This year’s hosts, Limerick Field Archery Club (LFAC), who had worked hard all year to make the event happen, were looking forward to welcoming archers from all corners of the island and beyond to this little piece of field archery heaven. Participants competed in the two day formal competition as well as shooting a fun novelty course which included some moving targets and a duelling station. Coming up to the weekend, all eyes were on the weather forecast.
