4-Wall Handball Tyrone Finals 2019


Allianz Cumann na mBunscol, Thír Eoghain, held their 4-Wall Handball County Finals in the superb Loughmacrory Handball Alley. Primary schools from across the county competed for a number of prestigious titles in the U11 and U13 grade for Girls and Boys at Singles and Doubles level.

A large crowd of spectators made for a good atmosphere and they were treated to matches of the highest order, as the participants showcased their vast array of skills. A new entrant this year, Gaelscoil na gCrann, certainly enhanced proceedings. It was obvious that all the schools were up for the battle in their bid to capture a coveted county title.
