All Ireland Handball Glory

All Ireland success for Hall and Kavanagh

Wexford celebrated its second premier under 14 All Ireland 60 x 30 doubles win in handball in as many years as Tomas Hall and Daniel Kavanagh delivered the goods on the biggest day of all. This was Tomas Hall’s second time in two years winning this title, but it’s certainly another one he will cherish .
Up against Stephen Smith and Tomas Donohue from Cavan it was an awesome performance from the Wexford boys who lead from pillar to post in a very dominant display. Winning the first set is crucial and the model county men bombarded their opponents in a 15-4 win. The second set took much the same pattern as the better team work and handball of the Wexford duo shown through as they captured the second set 15-6 and in so doing won the title.
It was not to be for the model county in the Girls under 15 doubles this weekend as Chloe Cash and Courtney Browne lost out in the final to a very strong Galway pairing of Anna Ni Murchu and Eimear Bhiada. The first game was one to forget for the Wexford pairing as the tribe’s women secured a 15-1 win. However the girls in maroon and white were sweating near the end of the second set but they somehow got over the line on a 15-14 score line and one feels had the Wexford girls won the second set they would have taken the game.
