· The new 40 x 20 Juvenile Handball season kicked
off to a great start on Saturday last at Tralee and Ballymacelligott
where 48 players turned out for the ‘Trophyworld’ Interclub
Tournament. This was the second year of this event, which
caters for the U-12, U-13, and U14 age group, boys and girls.
Tralee, Gaeltacht, Glenbeigh and Ballymac Clubs were represented,
and there was some good handball played. Eight teams of six
players gave their best for a place in the final but the
honour fell to the Orange Team: Ashley Prendiville, (Ballymac)
Finbar Fitzpatrick (Glenbeigh) Paul Culloty (Ballymac) Gearoid
O’Ciobhain (Gaeltacht)Rory O Connor (Glenbeigh) Niamh
Moriarty (Tralee) and the Black Team : Daithi O Shea (Gaeltacht)
Caoimhin O Shea (Gaeltacht) Colm O Muircheartaigh (Gaeltacht)
Padraigh Mac Uaidh (Gaeltacht) Garry Marshall (Tralee) Claire
Fitzgerald (Tralee). The final, played in Ballymacelligott
was a cracker and very close with just two aces between the
teams. The gallery was packed for the final. The new facilities
at Ballymac court proved a great asset on the day, and the
Club are to be complimented on this. Sincere thanks: to the
Referees, Parents, Club and Co. Board Officials, who all
played their part in ensuring that the day was a memorable
one for handball. We now look forward to the County Finals.
One of the highlights of the day turned out to be a showcase
of handball provided by John O Donnell (Tralee) and Tim Prendiville
(Ballymac) during the interval, before the final. This game
went down a treat, and was a great opportunity for the young
players to see some class handball. Thanks to John and Tim.
