No major upsets in the weekend’s major Handball Championship events either in the Men’s Open Doubles or the Ladies Open Singles.

Match of the weekend saw the Armagh pairing of Doyle and Shanks overcome Mayo’s Keegan and McCann in two closely fought sets 21-18 21-19 whilst in the Ladies Singles, among those to progress (as expected) were

Kerry’s Ashley Prendiville and Maria Daly, the Antrim duo Fiona Shannon and Aisling Reilly and young Down star, Lorraine Havern. With so many up and coming young stars of the future this promises to be the most exciting season for many years – especially in the Ladies Singles.
