Quadruple gold for Mallow in All Ireland Handball Finals

Davis College student Niall Delany had a hugely successful weekend on the handball front when he partnered Stephen O’Rourke to win the All-Ireland Under 17 Doubles Championship. Niall, a 4th year student, is currently on a handball scholarship in the Aran Islands. His dedication to the sport paid off as the duo won in two straight games, 21-3, 21-12. Congratulations to Niall and Stephen from all in Davis College for bringing All Ireland honours to Mallow.

Mallow Handball Club had a golden weekend in Cavan, with four players travelling to Kingscourt and all four bringing home gold medals in their respective grades. First up on Saturday was Tadgh Carroll in the intermediate All Ireland Final where he defeated Daniel Kavanagh (Wexford), and he was followed by Tadhg O’Neill who beat Eoin Brennan (Kilkenny) in the minor final. On Sunday, Niall Delany and Stephen O’Rourke beat Ciarán Power and Colm Parnell (Wexford) in the All Ireland U17 Doubles Final, so a total of four medals were brought back to Mallow after the weekend. Well done to all four players, and to their club and coaches.
