Brennan and Doheny Shine In Irish Nationals

posted 5 May 2017, 10:23 by Martin Lalor


Last weekend the Junior 40 x 20 Nationals were played at Galway venues with big entries in almost all the grades. These competitions have been very well supported over the years and give a good indication of the growing interest in the sport at a national level.

From a local point of view a strong contingent of players travelled to the West of Ireland, with considerable success in a number of grades. Some of the players travelling would be relatively new to this type of competition, and this was a great opportunity to develop these players.

On the playing front Kilkenny reached four finals, Boys 13 and under A and B, Boys 17 and under, and Girls 17 and under.  In the Boys 17 and under final, Eoin Brennan made no mistake when defeating all comers to record a great victory in the grade. Having coming through the early rounds to reach the semi-final, the Kells players renewed rivalry with Dara Keane from Kerry, a player who had beaten Eoin in last year’s 60 x 30 All Ireland U16 Singles semi-final. This time it was the turn of the Kilkenny player to come out on top, winning 15-4, 15-1. In the final, Eoin continued where he left off in his semi-final, dominating from the start and was a comfortable winner over Cian O’Driscoll(Cork), 15-9, 15-9. This was some consolation for the Kells player as he lost the All Ireland Minor Singles decider a few weeks ago.

 Elsewhere, there were some good results recorded by local players at these very competitive championships. There was high hopes in Boys 13 and under with Kyle Jordan (Kilfane) contesting the decider against Mark Doyle from Wexford). However, on this occasion the Slaneysider came out on top, 15-3, 15-8. Also in this grade, Daniel Hanrahan (Galmoy) reached the semi-final where he also lost out to Doyle, 15-4, 15-1.

 In Boys 13 and under B grade, John Doheny from Galmoy came through a large field, 58 entries, to see off the challenge of Kaelan Murphy (Cork), 15-9,13-15,11-5 to record his first victory in this competition. On his way to the final, John beat Harry Delaney (Kells) in his semi-final. Earlier in the season, John was part of the successful All Ireland winning Boys U14/15 team. Also a semi-finalist in Galway was Jack Doyle (Windgap), as he came out a 15-7, 15-6 loser to Lorcan McBride (Tyrone) in what was a very strong Boys 15 and under grade.

In the girls championships, Mary Ellen Phelan (Galmoy) came through some tough tests to reach the final of the Girls 17 and under grade. Here she faced the very impressive Megan McCann (Armagh) who proved a step too far for the North Kilkenny player, winning in two games 15-2, 15-0. Mary Ellen played excellently all weekend and will move forward a better player from this experience. Clogh’s Lauren Power was a runner up in the Girls 13 and under plate event.

Hardball and One Wall

Now that the 40 x 20 season has finally ended the emphasis over the next few weeks will be on Hardball and One Wall competitions. The oldest form of handball, Hardball, has made somewhat of a resurgence in recent years, particularly among young players. Most championships are well contested, with quite a number of these young players using strokes normally associated with 40 x 20 to good advantage in the ancient code. The One Wall season will commence in the coming weeks, with tournaments scheduled across the country, culminating in the National One Wall championships in Breaffy House, Mayo in early July

 

 

 

 

Masters Players Keep Handball Flag Flying Highost

posted 28 Apr 2017, 10:17 by Martin Lalor   [ updated 28 Apr 2017, 10:17 ]


Last weekend, the Handball community of Ireland descended on Kingscourt for the All Ireland Adult Doubles championships in all grades. The Cavan venue hosted a full programme of events, with Kilkenny players involved in five finals spread over both days. There was a mixed set of results with Kilkenny winning titles in the Silver Masters B Doubles and Diamond Masters B Doubles championships.

On Saturday at the Ulster venue, Kilkenny started their quest for All Ireland titles when competing in the Intermediate Doubles and U21 Doubles finals, with Tyrone providing the opposition in both contests. First up in Intermediate Doubles were Ciarán Neary and Brendan Burke as they faced Shane O’Neill and Sean Kerr in a match that went to three sets. The first two games were shared equally, with identical scores 21-19, which brought the final to the third, and deciding, set. Here the Northern duo took advantage of a fading Kilkenny challenge and secured their place in next season’s Senior grade when taking the title, 21-5. This was a tough defeat for the Talbots Inch/ Kells pair as it was their third successive appearance in the final.

In the U21 Doubles clash between Kilkenny and Tyrone, Brian Mahon (Clogh) and Emmet Landy (Windgap) had a tough task when playing Johnny Woods and Ryan Mullan. In a close first game, the Tyrone duo came out on top 21-19. The second set was dominated by the Northern boys and they sealed the victory with a comfortable 21-13 win.

Having suffered defeat in two All Ireland finals the previous day, hopes were high on Sunday morning that Kilkenny would have better luck in the three contests that were down for decision. With strong travelling support from the county, Kilkenny contested the Silver Masters A, Silver Masters B and Diamond Masters B Doubles finals at the Cavan venue.

 In the first final of the day, Willie Holden (Kilfane) and David Bourke (Mothel) played Tyrone’s Kenny Curran and Finbarr Fullen in Silver Masters B Doubles. This was an opportunity for Kilkenny to secure their first title of the weekend and Willie and David obliged when winning in two sets. The Kilfane/Mothel pair won a tight first game, 21-17, and secured victory with a comfortable 21-12 win in the second set. This was their first All Ireland title since they started playing together in recent times.  

Next up for the county were Joe Anthony (Mullinavat) and Billy Love (Clogh) in their Diamond Masters B Doubles decider against Down’s Brian Havern and Peter McSherry. In his Singles final against Havern, Joe came out on top with a victory. On Sunday, Joe and Billy confirmed their superiority over the Down pair with a comprehensive win. The Kilkenny pair were never in any difficulty in either game, scoring a 21-7, 21-5 win to bring home the title.

The last final involving Kilkenny was in Silver Masters A Doubles with Eddie Bourke (O’Loughlins) and Joe Walsh (Mullinavat) taking on Antrim’s Paddy Crothers and John McGarry. As expected, this was a tough assignment for the Noresiders against former Senior Doubles champions. The local pair gave a good account of themselves in the first set when running the Northerners to 21-15, however, the Antrim duo upped the tempo in the second and eased to a 21-5 to clinch the crown.

 

 

Junior Nationals

This weekend the Irish 40 x 20 Junior Nationals will take place at various venues in County Galway. This is the last event on the 2017 juvenile calendar and will see a strong contingent of young players travel from Kilkenny to the West of Ireland. Players from Mothel, Clogh, Galmoy, Kells and Windgap will compete in various grades in what should be an excellent advertisement for juvenile handball in Ireland.

Another Big Weekend As Handballers Chase More Titles

posted 19 Apr 2017, 08:43 by Martin Lalor


As the end of the 40 x 20 Handball season looms on the horizon, there is another big weekend instore for supporters of the game. This weekend, Kingscourt will host the All Ireland Doubles series of finals with local players involved in five matches. The format of playing all the finals on the same weekend is in its second year and has proved to be very popular with supporters and players alike, and has led to an increase in attendances at finals.

Played over two days, the matches involving Kilkenny players are split between Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, the Intermediate and U21 Doubles are down for decision, and on Sunday, Kilkenny will contest the Silver Masters A and B Doubles finals along with the Diamond Masters B decider.

First up on Saturday are the Talbots Inch/Kells pairing of Ciáran Neary and Brenan Burke in their Intermediate Doubles final against Tyrone’s Shane O’Neill and Sean Kerr. The Kilkenny duo had a convincing semi-final win against Mayo and are aiming to attain Senior status having lost finals in 2015 and 2106. They face a strong pairing in O’Neill and Kerr and will need to be on top of their game to achieve that goal. In the U21 Doubles decider, Brian Mahon (Clogh) and Emmet Landy (Windgap) will also face Tyrone opposition in their final, Johnny Woods and Ryan Mullan. The Kilkenny duo also scored a comfortable semi-final win over Mayo, but will face a lot stiffer challenge this weekend at the Cavan venue.

On Sunday, the attention turns to the Masters grades at the Ulster venue and there will be local interest in three of the finals down for decision. In the Silver Masters grade, Kilkenny are involved in both the A and B finals.

In action early on Sunday are Willie Holden and David Bourke and they face another Tyrone duo, Kenny Curran and Finbarr Fullan in their quest for Silver Masters B Doubles honours. The Kilfane/Mothel pair were impressive in their two set win over Mayo, and a repeat of that performance will make life very difficult for the opposition. Next on court are the Diamond Masters B pairings of Kilkenny and Down. Representing Noreside are Joe Anthony (MullInavat) and Billy Love (Clogh) and they will face Brian Davern and Peter McSherry from the Ulster county. Joe scored a great win against Davern in the All Ireland Singles final a few weeks ago, and will be hoping that his partnership with the North Kilkenny man, Billy Love, proves as fruitful on Sunday. To complete Kilkenny’s involvement in the Doubles weekend, Eddie Bourke (O’Loughlins) and Joe Walsh (Mullinavat) play Paddy Crothers and John McGarry from Antrim in the Silver Masters A. Having come through Leinster without any competition, Eddie and Joe had a tough three set win over Mayo in O’Loughlins two weeks ago. This final against Antrim will be another step up in class and they will need to produce a good display to secure victory against a very experienced pair.
