Roscommon Handball Round-Up

St Brigid’s H.C held their annual doubles tournament on Sunday last in Curraghboy writes Aengus Cunningham.

This tournament provides players with an opportunity to gain some extra competitive games before the Championship season kicks off.

The Plate games were played in St Coman’s in Roscommon town with both finals taking place in Curraghboy before a packed audience.

Seamus Connelly and Conor Noone (Moycullen) teamed up to win this year’s Doubles tournament and in doing so took home the Pake Doyle Cup. They beat Pat Murphy (Claremorris) and David Walsh (Mallow) in a fantastic final 31-23.

Vinny Moran and Campbell Brennan of Ballaghadereen took the honours in the Plate competition defeating Westmeath pair of Neil McDermott and Darren Carter.

The Mayo pairing’s experience was the difference in the end and they held out to win 25 – 17.

Timothy Doyle the Chairman of St Brigid’s H.C presented the trophies. Great credit must go to Timothy, Seamus McHugh and his wife Teresa who once again ran an excellent tournament and also provided an endless supply of refreshments for the players and supporters throughout the day.
