The high point of Kilkenny Handball this week was the victory of Shane Dunne (Clogh) and Eoin Brennan (Kells) in the All Ireland Minor Doubles final against Mayo's Patrick Murphy and Martin Mulhern in three sets at Thurles on Saturday. The Kilkenny duo lost the first set 21-15 but thereafter the Clogh/Kells pair took over in the remaining two games. Winning the second set 21-8, Shane and Eoin raced 15-2 ahead in the third before sealing the national honours with when closing out the match with a 21-11 win.
This Saturday Shane renews rivalry with Patrick Murphy when they contest the Minor Singles final, again at Thurles.
