The Connacht Cumann na mBunscol Handball Finals were held in Salthill Handball Club, Galway today Sunday 11/2/18.
Well done to all those who travelled long distances and from overseas (Inis Oírr agus Árainn) to participate. Many thanks to Salthill Handball Club for the use of their fine facilities and to all those who refereed voluntarily – Pierce Lalor, Mike Dillon and Morgan Darcy. Many thanks also to Frances Curran and the Connacht Handball Councuil who sponsored tee-shirts for all participants. A great day was had by all.
All winners (1st place) go on to participate in the National Cumann na mBunscol Handball Day which takes place in Kingscourt, Co Cavan on Saturday 24th February 2018.
