Super handball action

The County final of the 40×20 Junior Singles will be between St. Coman’s Oisin Naughton and Lisacul’s Denis Creighton after both won their semi-finals in impressive fashion last Saturday.

  Oisin beat Lisacul’s Sean Jennings 21-13, 21-17, while Denis Creighton eased to a 21-4, 21-16 win over St. Coman’s Darren Beattie.

  It was double delight for the Tully family at the all-female She’s Ace tournament held in Mayo last weekend, as both Fiona and Siobhan won their respective grades.

  Fiona defeated Kildare’s Hannah Dagg 25-22 in the final. Siobhan competed in the ‘B’ grade, where she beat Aisling Fitzgerald (Clare) 15-8, 15-7 in the final.

  The County finals of the Cumann na mBunscoil were held in St. Coman’s last Saturday. Carragh Kennedy (Roxboro NS) won the Girls U-13 singles event, defeating Katie Heneghan (Tisrara NS) 11-6, 11-5.

  The Treacy twins from Mount Talbot NS were hot favourites for the Girls U-13 doubles title but were made work for it by Fourmilehouse newcomers Aoife and Karina Leonard. Siobhan and Aisling won 11-5, 11-0.

  Gaelscoil de hIde’s Rory Carthy faced a tough battle in the final of the Boys U-11 Singles against clubmate Irslam Yakhyaev (Abbey Boys NS). Rory proved that bit more consistent and won a very entertaining game 11-7, 11-7.

  The Boys U-13 singles was the best competition of the day and when the dust settled the  impressive Philip Halliday (Gaelscoil de hIde) emerged victorious.  There were two walkovers in the Boys doubles, with David Brennan and Brian Keegan (Fourmilehouse NS) and Michael Devine and Sean Healy (Fourmilehouse NS) going forward to represent Roscommon in the U-11 and U-13 grades respectively.
