Handball Breaks New Ground On The Small Screen.
Up and down the country the growth in interest and in participation in Handball has been truly phenomenal. Of course Ireland has always produced some magnificent players and currently Cavan’s Paul Brady and Dublin’s Eoin Kennedy are probably the two best known exponents of the noble game. However within Tyrone there has always been a great interest in the game and Caolan Daly’s success at the National Championships was further evidence of the growing strength of the game in the Red Hand County.
Recently however the game has moved to new levels in terms of profile with the Handball All Star Awards Dinner and the growing number of schools facilitating the game. Much of that is down to the man who currently holds the post of top administrator in Handball and that man is none other than Tyrone’s Chris Curran. The Loughmacrory man been extremely busy since his move to Croke Park and has brought some wonderful new initiatives which have given the game of Handball a real shot in the arm. Loughmacrory club has long been a thriving centre of Handball and has produced many fine players and administrators over the years, Chris Curran among them.
The very latest development, TG4’s Handball Show is sure to raise the profile of the game even further as it brings Handball to the small screen with its history and traditions, its heroes and hopes for the future. The series will run for six shows and will highlight not only the skills and fitness levels of the many people participating in the game but its appeal across genders and all ages.
