Meath handballers continued their bumper season of winning medals when picking up another two honours last weekend where at Broadford (Limerick) on Saturday evening Brian Carroll and Tom Sheridan faced Mayo men Dessie Keegan and Joe McCann in the senior doubles final.
After an enthralling three-hour marathon the Meath combination emerged victorious on a scoreline of 16-21, 21-17, 21-16.
Carroll and Sheridan were cheered on by a large crowd who had travelled from Kells and the loyal supporters were rewarded with the match-of-the-year.
This was a well deserved victory as the Kells pair had put in a huge effort this year in training and also in competitions.
There was also success on Friday evening when Christy McGovern and John 'Boy’ Molloy defeated Tipperary duo Jimmy and Kevin Mullins in the All-Ireland Masters final at Crinkle by 21-16, 21-5.
In the minor final on the same programme, Meath were also represented by the Kells combination of Evan Sheridan and Robert Fox in what was their first minor national decider.
However, the Meath duo lost out to Daniel Relihan and John Hedigan from Cork, 12-21, 14-21.
The Kells handballers will be eligible for minor again next year and will hopefully go one better in 2014.
