Nash Bridges 42 Year Gap To Claim All Ireland Handball Glory

Clare’s Diarmaid Nash has become just the second hand baller from the county to be crowned All Ireland senior 4 wall champion.

The Tuamgraney clubman bridged a 42 year gap to the Banners last title at the grade, with Pat Kirby’s final victory in 1980 being the last Clare success in the competition.

The Scariff native overcame Westmeath’s Robbie McCarthy in the decider, with a 21-8, 17-21, 11-8 victory.
