On the 2nd April, 2022, 48 children from all over Ireland had the chance to represent their province at the Cumann na mBuncoil National Handball day 2022. It was held in Kingscourt, Co.Cavan due to the great facilities there.
Two girls from our school, Evie McCarthy & I, Ciara O’Reilly represented Leinster.
We were told to be up bright and early as we needed to be in Kingscourt by 9.30am. Games were to be played up to 15 points with each team to take 4 serves before rotating serve with their opponents.
Each player received a goody bag containing pens and rulers, handballs, a €10 voucher for an ice-cream shop down the road and a jersey.
We managed to beat Connacht and Ulster and had a very close match with Munster losing by only three points. We had a lovely day and cannot wait for next year!
