Hard luck to Michael Mc Carron as he lost his All Ireland semi-final in the Diamond Masters “A”, he played Martin Crowen from Mayo Sunday last in Mayo, the score was 21-20,21-6, this game probably came a few weeks too early as Michael was only getting up to match fitness after been out for several months through injury hard luck.

Juvenile County Doubles. Yet again we hosted another packed day of handball in St.Mellans as the juvenile county doubles finals came to town. We had a very successful day taking 3 out of the 4 presented finals we were in. First in was the U13 finalist of Ryan Mohan & Finbar Mc Ginn who defeated Ronan King & Mark Mohan of Tydavnet 15-1 15-1, then in the all club U14 final was James Mc Kenna & Gary Mc Kenna against Jamie Sherlock & Ciaran Rafferty, this was a see-saw game which went the 3 games, after taking the first game 15-0 Gary & James looked in full control but Jamie and Ciaran came back in the second and took it 14-15. Then the last game all was to play for and Gary & James just got over the line 15-10 a good game from all players. The U16’s of Noel Flood & Daniel Mc Kenna didn’t have as much success as the Treanor Twin’s from Tydavnet won 21-1,21-14, the tydavnet men would be a more settle and experienced pairing and this came big in their favour especially in the first game, but Noel and Daniel re-grouped well in the second game but it wasn’t to be hard luck. Finally in the last game of the day saw another all club affair as Ryan Treanor(T) & Aaron Mohan took on our Twin team of Damon & Chris Hughes in the U17 final, losing the fist game 21-4 the twins got some advice and mended some of the early mistakes and got to 14 in the second game, this was a good display boys and a bit more game time and experience who knows what can be achieved, well done to all the winners and hard luck to all runner-ups on the day, also thanks to all who helped to run yet another fun full day of handball for all the young players of the county.
