The successes of the young handballers of Tyrone in the Ulster finals of the Cumman na mBunscol competitions recently is further proof of the strength of handball in the county.

Played at the Gort na Mona Centre in Belfast there were victories for Lorcan Mc Bride in the under eleven singles and for Loughmacrory pair Ronan Cullen and Antoin Fox in the under 13 doubles. There was success also in the girls section with Drumduff pair Eimear Kerr and Elizabeth Mc Garvey lifting the under 11 doubles while Ciara Mullan of Carrickmore won the under 13 singles title.
