County Handball Notes Liathroid Laimhe. St.Mellans Handball Club
On Saturday evening at half time of the Truagh V Latton game the crowd were introduced to St.Mellans Handball Club’s latest’s All-Ireland champions, our team of 4 boys who won the Feile na nGael U15 Boys 4 Wall Div 3 competition in Tinryland Co. Carlow, Cian Treanor, Daithi Mc Meel, Dermott Mc Kenna & Donnacha Mc Cluskey took home the title after defeating Inis Mor Co. Galway in the final and also defeating Kells from Co. Kilkenny and Carrick on Suir Co. Tipperary on the way to the title, the win was made all the more sweeter as they were defeated by “Inis Mor” in the first game of the tournament but the boys got their revenge when it mattered, this was a feat matched back in ’07 by Darragh Mc Ginn, Christopher Mc Kenna (D), Fergal O’Neill, Padraig Mc Kenna & Sean O Hagan who wonthe same title. Considering the past 2 years that handball had experienced due to covid19 this was the 2 nd All-Ireland title to come to St.Mellans Handball Club in ’22, as Donnacha Mc Cluskey won the 15 and under B Title defeating Padraig Fox from Loughmacrory on his home patch in the final, having to come through a qualifier the weekend before Donnacha then came out of his group the next Saturday, this set up a tough semi-final against Sean Cummins from Kells Co.Meath, which left him later in the day facing Padraig for the title, another memorable day for the club, on the same weekend Aoibhinn Mc Cluskey won the girls U17B Plate defeating Ellen Curran from Galway, also in the Nationals.
