Leitrim handballer Donal Wrynn made G.A.A. Handball history on Saturday last as he claimed the All-Ireland handball Minor Singles 40 x 20 title, the first time it was won by a Leitrim competitor.

Wrynn had to come from behind against talented Wexford teenager, Galen Riordain, who will also be a minor again in 2013, after losing the first 21-9 and he went on to provide a super exhibition of retrieving and precision killshots to claim the title on a 21-13, 21-9 scoreline.
