Loughmacrory play host to All Ireland 60×30 Juvenile Championship semi finals
Loughmacrory GAA Handball Club will play host to the All Ireland 60×30 Juvenile Championship semi finals this Sunday from 12pm at the 60×30 court.
In all Tyrone will face Leinster champions in seven grades with club player, Caitlin Conway, first up in the challenge as she will contest the opening game against Kildare’s Leah Doyle. Caitlin actually won the All Ireland Under 14 doubles in the ‘big court’ twelve months when a year young for the grade and will no doubt give a great account in her home court.
Loughmacrory will also be represented on the day by Antoin Fox in the Boys Under 16 doubles semi final alongside Breacach’s Turlough Clarke. Antoin also picked up the All Ireland Under 14 doubles title in the 60×30 last term and with Turlough look to hold very solid chances.
Carrickmore’s Lorcan McBride will be a strong fancy in the Boys Under 14 singles semi final against Kilkenny’s Jack Holden as he bids to do a clean sweep of 40×20 and 60×30 titles for the campaign. Breacach’s Sean Kerr, Loughmacrory’s Brian Donaghy and Ciaran Curran are the only other Tyrone handballers ever to achieve that feat.
Emer Kerr and Elizabeth McGarvey will face Kilkenny in the Under 14 doubles, Michaela McCartan will take on Kildare’s Mollie Dagg in the Under 16 semi final, Ciara Mullin will face Kilkenny’s Dearbhail O’Keeffe in the Girls 15 & Under semi final and the action will conclude with the Boys Under 17 Singles semi final with Carrickmore’s Pauric Mullan up against Kildare’s Kevin Diggins.
All support greatly welcomed on the day.
