All Ireland Final beckons: Our Handball team has reached the ‘B’ All Ireland Final after a narrow semi-final victory last Sunday in St.Comans, Roscommon. First in the alley for us was Christopher (PJ) who lost out to John Noonan on a score of 9-21 12-21. Then the doubles of Ian and Eamon took to the court and were paired against John Kennelly and Pat Murphy. Both pairs shared the spoils at 15-21 and 21-12 leaving Keith to settle the match. Keith won the first 21-18 and then pulled off one of the games of his life leaving, winning on a score line of 21-2 which left the team winning on score line of 99 to 95.
This was a great achievement by all players. Well done lads, now hopefully you all now can finish the job off and take home another All Ireland title for the club. The final is penciled in for next Saturday the 8th. Opposition, venue and time TBC. Keep an eye on the Handball website and we will inform all club members via text as soon as the information is available.
