CLARE DUO, Paul Rodgers and Sean Considine claimed All-Ireland glory in the handball alley in the past fortnight.

Paul Rodgers of Tuamgraney and Clooney/Quin’s Sean Considine teamed up to win the U13 double 60×30 in Taghmon, Wexford.

Although Clare is better known for its exploits in 40×20 courts, the new experience didn’t deter the Banner youngsters. Paul and Sean beat local Wexford pair of Nathan Lawlor and Charlie Roche in the semi-final following a tie-break (15-4, 13-15, 11-9).

It would also take a tie-break for the pair to prevail in the final against Kilkenny’s Rian Dowling and Conor Deegan. Although the first game did not go the way of Rodgers and Considine, they kept their composure to secure the All-Ireland title (4-15, 15-13, 11-4).

For Paul, it is his third All-Ireland title following the U13 40×20 and U14 success.

There was no such joy for the duo of David Considine (Clooney/Quin) and Liam Madden (Tuamgraney), they exited in the quarter-finals of the U17 60×30 competition.
