Most of the coaching for the year is all over except for a group or so that are playing internal leagues, a big thank you to all who helped out in any way over the year and hope all will be back raring to go in the new season, we always encourage as many as possible to keep playing a small bit over the summer as to keep in contact with the sport, we have also some entered in the Irish Nationals which is being held in North Monaghan and South Tyrone in May and we are hoping to enter a team in Feile this year but it is being held in Cork at the end of June which will unfortunately involve a bit of travelling, other handball tournaments will be held through out the country during the year but we will be sending out messages to all parents to see if anyone will be interested in travelling to these events, enjoy the summer everyone!!!!.
