Congratulations to John Ferncombe, Abbey Mews, Holycross on the occasion of his Gold Medal win with his playing partner Denis White of the Cashel Handball Club. John is also a member of that Club.
John’s ‘Golden’ win was achieved whilst competing in the C Doubles in the World Championships which have just been held in Dublin. John Jnr. could not have escaped the Handball bug, his father John, Gleann Ri, and Mick McGrath, Killeenyarda, in their hey days were renowned competitive players and going back to his grandfather the late Mikey Ferncombe, he too played handball and spent his hours of leisure in the local Ball Alley in Rathcannon.
We wish him continued success with the Cashel Club and as a player with the Holycross Ballycahill G.A.A.
