GAA Handball


Welcome to our new school Handball page. We only started playing handball in the last 18 months and we have had phenomenal success so far and a huge amount of enjoyment.
We run our own in-school doubles competition where players play for the Ryan Cup which is a cup sponsored by the Ryan family in memory of Michael Ryan and his son MJ who playd at senior level for both Kilkenny and Dublin.
We are hugely indebted to Galmoy GAA club for the unlimited use of their courts adjacent to the school. Since starting we now have 4 county handball titles in the school as well as a leinster title at under 11 level for Billy who then went on to finish 2nd in his first All Ireland.. We have many pupils who now play for the newly formed Galmoy Handball Club. The wet winter days in school no longer hold any fear for our children as they get to spend more and more time on the courts!! Please take time to browse the phtographs above and also to check out the excellent resources on this page courtesy of th GAA Handball website. Lets get Playing!!!!
