Deane's shop at 5 each, and also from Tidy Towns members. Your

Leinster Handball
The Leinster Juveniles Handball Semi-Finals were played in O'Loughlins, Kilkenny on Saturday March 3rd 2012. The home team from Kilkenny came out on top over Tinryland in this encounter with more experience on their side. Also a home venue to Kilkenny did not help the Carlow lads. Dinny Farrell got off to a slow start in the first game and could never catch up but showed what a promising player he is when he almost won the second game. Shea Byrne and partner Joseph Byrne had to give way in under 13 doubles to the more experienced Kilkenny pair. While Cormac O'Brien Tinryland and partner Owen Hosey from Garryhill in the under 12 Doubles put up a great fight to lose narrowly in the second game but this pair will be still underage for next year.There is also a Leinster B Championship coming up so best of luck is extended to the Tinryland lads in that tournament.
