Saturday’s (Apr 2) All Ireland Schools Handball Festival was held in Kingscourt, Cavan the best handball in all four provinces was showcased.
All four boys were presented with matching medals and a bag of goodies by the President of Cumann na mBunscoil where he praised the standard of handball on display. The President added it was a credit to the players’ schools, handball clubs, counties and provinces. He went on to emphasise how handball has always complemented the other codes in the GAA especially hurling/camogie and football where records will show how national success in these other codes often comes from success from perfecting the small ball skills in handball. He wished the children well in their years ahead and emphasised how delighted all were to be back playing after two years of lockdown.
