Four Handball Clubs in Leitrim and Sligo have come together to organise an Inter-Club Tournament for Boys and Girls U11/U12 in both 40x20 and One Wall.

The clubs taking part are Drumshanbo, Fenagh, Castleconnor and Collooney. The first leg of 40x20 was held in Drumshanbo with Collooney going home victorious after a great day’s handball defeating Fenagh in the final. Castleconnor will host the second leg with Fenagh and Collooney hosting the One Wall Tournament during the summer. The Tournament is open only to players who have not taken part in any of the major handball competitions.

Leitrim had two representatives in The Ladies Challenger section at the 40x20 Nationals played over the week-end, Fenagh’s Michelle Gaffney and Drumshanbo’s Joanne Logan, with both players coming up against Dublin’s Audrey McCormack. Michelle was defeated in the last 16 while Joanne was defeated in the quarter final.
