Kilkenny handball: all set to get back on track this weekend

As with all the sporting fixtures last week, the weather wiped out the handball programme.
The All-Ireland semi-finals scheduled in the juvenile and adult championships were called off, and these matches are now refixed for this weekend.
At local level the county fixture programme was also postponed to a future date.
With the Festival of Handball due to be played in Kingscourt on the St Patrick’s weekend there will be very little room for delays in any competitions.
As one of the biggest handball weekends of the year, the Cavan programme will involve a huge amount of matches over the three days.
Along with the All-Ireland men’s and ladies Open singles finals, all the other adult singles finals will be completed.
The juveniles are also well looked after as the All-Ireland finals will be played.
The Kilkenny juvenile representatives are:
Boys under-14S - Kyle Jordan (Kilfane); under-14D – Daniel Hanrahan/Thomas Sharkey (Galmoy); under-15S – John Doheny (Galmo); under-15D – Sean Barron/ Ciaran Phelan (Kells/Windgap); under-16D – Kyle Dunne/Jack Doyle (Clogh/Windgap); under-17S – Jack Holden (Kilfane).
Girls - under-14S - Amy Brennan (Clogh); under-16S - Roisin O’Keeffe (Kilfane); under-17S - Noelle Dowling (Mothel); under-17D - Nicole Dowling/Kelly Anne Ryan (Clogh/Galmoy).
Adults
Also in action this weekend are the Leinster adult singles winners. They will play their All-Ireland semi-final matches against Ulster opposition.
In the minor singles grade Eoin Brennan (Kells) will travel northwards to play Tyrone’s Cormac Munroe for a place in the final in two weeks time.
On the same day Clogh’s Shane Dunne will have a home venue for his under-21 singles contest against Gavin Coyle (Monaghan) and in ladies junior ‘B’ singles, Margaret Purcell (Windgap) will also have home advantage against Claire Coway(Tyrone).
