Handball Munster Colleges Win13 Feb 2011
Having defeated Nenagh in a County play off in Horse and Jockey last week, Padraig O’Donoghue and Daniel Hayes represented Cashel in the Junior doubles category.Their Munster semi final opponents were Aidan Kerins and Matthew Collins of Cork. Cashel were the more experienced pair and secured a convincing victory in two straight games. The Munster Final was next for the cashel lads where they faced Sean Donnellan and Paul Gleeson of Shannon. This was a tough match with some great play from all four players but Padraig and Daniel showed superior skill on the day and came out on top, winning 15-14, 15-11. This was a great achievement for Padraig and Daniel, adding another title to those earned both for their school and for their club. The lads will go forward to the All-Ireland Semi Final which will take place next weekend. We wish them the very best of luck.
