*Shane Walsh. 

Tuamgraney’s Shane Walsh was crowned Munster masters B handball champion last week when he defeated Roger Casey from Cork in the final.

However there was disappointment for both Sean Coughlan and David Considine (both Clooney/Quin) when they were defeated in the junior and under 21 finals respectively. Sean lost out to Jerome Cahill from Tipperary while Eoghan Daly from Cork accounted for David Considine.

All-Ireland final:

Leah Minogue will play in the All-Ireland Intermediate final this coming weekend when she will take on Amy Brennan from Kilkenny.

The pair met recently in the U.S collegiate finals when Amy recorded a narrow win.

Leah Minogue.

On her way to this final Leah defeated Cuileann Burke (Mayo) in the quarter-final and Jodie Keeling(Wexford) in semi-final.

Also in All-Ireland final action next weekend is Clare’s Chloe Philpott who will face Tyrone’s Clare Conway in the junior B final.

After a quarter final win over Alannah Coggeran she faced her fellow clare player, Amber Nolan and a time break was required to get a result in this one.

Fresh from his Munster final success, Shane Walsh plays in the Masters B final against Cavan’s Paul Fitzpatrick. In the All-Ireland semi-final Shane defeated Roscommon’s David Coggeran. All three are in action in Croke Park over Saturday and Sunday.
