GAA: Trio on Italian job

Three competitors from Tyrone club Carrickmore represented Ireland at last weekend's Italian One-Wall Open Handball Championships, which took place in Milan.

The Carrickmore trio - Gary McCrory, Pauric McGlinchey and Daragh Daly (pictured) - were joined by Niall Flynn from the Abbeylara club in Longford.

McGlinchey was a beaten finalist in the Men's 'B' Singles in this year's St Paul's Golden Gloves (40X20) Tournament in Belfast last month.

Daly won the Men's 'B' Singles event at this year's All-Ireland One-Wall Championships in Sligo in July, when he defeated Flynn.

All four players have numerous provincial titles at different levels to their credit.

The US were represented by their strongest One-Wall combination, with William Polanco and Tony Roberts, who are the World No. 1 One-Wall Men's Open Doubles champions.

Joey Caplan, who is one half of the USHA One-Wall Men's Open Doubles champions over the last two years, also took part.

The Basque Country was represented by two of their top players with Ander Martin and Aitor Erauzkin (who was a finalist in last year's World One-Wall Men's Open Doubles) making the trip.
