The club was officially registered in 1974 although handball has been played in the parish for many years. The handball alley was located beside the river and castle since the early 1900’s. The club had some success in the county at an adult level and brought home an All-Ireland silver medal from the community games in 1979. Coaching of handball resumed with the local schools first in 2007, and within a few years had grown in popularity again. In the meantime, the outdoor alley was knocked and the club drew up plans for a new court beside the GAA clubhouse. This was finally opened in early 2017 and the future remains bright for the club.


Promotes and provides for the sport of handball within the community. Offers regular training and games for both social and competitive players male and female, from under 7 years to over 70. Prepares players for competitions throughout the year and country in 40×20, Wall Ball and 60×30 handball.
