Tyrone players collected a stunning total of four national titles at the competitive Irish wallball nationals last weekend which saw almost 400 players battle it out for honours over three days in Breaffy Sports Arena in County Mayo.
Once again it was Conor McElduff who emerged as the headline story as he collected a remarkable 4th men’s open title in 5 years at the nationals to cement his position as the greatest one wall handballer that Ireland has ever seen.
The European number one player had to come through a top class field to take the title, beating top Spanish player Sacha Kruithof in the semi final and All Ireland 40×20 champion and former one wall champion Martin Mulkerrins in the national final in front of a large crowd on Sunday night.
The win also ensured that the Tyrone star takes his place on Team Ireland for the World handball championships in Minnesota in August where he joins another rising Tyrone star Mairead Fox.
Mairead continued her fantastic unbeaten run at the weekend by stretching her winning sequence to 14 games in 2018, and securing her 4th national title of the year.
Mairead showed her class once again as she defeated opponents from Cork, Clare, Tyrone and Galway to become the 15 and under national champion at the wallball nationals.
Chris Curran added to the Tyrone success story in Breaffy with a brilliant triumph in the silver masters division, clinching the national  title with a narrow victory over Galway’s Mike Dillon.
And Clare Conway completed a fabulous national treble for the Loughmacrory club when she was a hugely popular winner of the Ladies B title in Breaffy, her biggest achievement in handball so far. Clare saw off strong opposition from Roscommon, Galway and Sligo to take the title in style.
Tyrone had runners up in other divisions as Niall Kerr, Barney McAleer and Caitlin Conway all enjoyed great runs in their respective competitions.
