Emyvale Handball Club Welcome New One Wall Court

Emyvale Handball Club were delighted to open a brand new One Wall handball court facility in the Main Hall in Emyvale Leisure Centre in County Monaghan on Sunday. To coincide with the opening, an Open Afternoon was hosted by the club for new players/beginners from the local community to try out the game. Three time World Handball Champion and current Ulster GAA Handball Development Officer Fiona Shannon was on hand to deliver a top class beginners training session to ask those in attendance. The action and skill on display was brilliant and it was a credit to all players, particularly those who had never played before! Well done all!

Emyvale Handball Club would also like to thank and acknowledge the hard work of the 2022-23 Youth Fund committee, made up of TY Students from St Louis Monaghan and St.Macartan's College under the guidance of Youth Work Ireland. Special thank you to both Rory Conway from the Youth Fund group and Tracey McArdle from Youth Work Ireland for calling in to the Centre yesterday and for their groups work over the last few months. Big thank you also to Amy Sidiropoulos from YWI for her brilliant guidance and support throughout. This project was funded through the Youth Fund grant scheme organised by Youth Work Ireland and supported by Peace IV funding. Massive thank you to Declan Sherry and his team for completing the required electrical work and to Shane, Paul and Eoghan from Treanor Joinery for installing the wall itself. Thank you also to Mark, Pete, Callum, Dylan and Colin from the Club Committee for the various jobs done to get this project over the line in the end. Massive thank you to Gary McEnaney from Monaghan Pix and Fabian Murphy for taking photos throughout! Big thank you also to Fiona for coming down and delivering a top class coaching session to all those in attendance! Finally a big thank you to Monica and Fabian and the wider Leisure Centre committee for their support throughout!

Big thank you to St Mellans Handball Club who donated a batch of handballs to the club - we look forward to hosting future One-wall derbies between the two clubs! Thank you also to Uachtarán Liathróid Láimhe CLG Conor McDonnell for attending the Opening. 

The Club looks forward to hosting future training sessions and matches on our amazing new court! Thank you All!
