Report

Olympic Handball, also known as Team Handball, or European Handball,  is a team sport invented in Northern Europe around the early 1900s. It is similar to Water Polo, whereby players try to throw a ball with their hands into a goal at either end. It is played indoors on the same court as a Futsal court, with the same markings.

Players aren’t allowed run with the ball but on receiving it have to pass it to a team-mate. The goal is to get into a semi-circle around the opposing team’s goal where the attacking player can make a shot.

Dublin International, based in Blanchardstown, won the double in 2011-2012, defeating surprise team DCU in the Final after winning the League, but were shocked the following season, 35-31, in the Final by Ballinteer’s Astra.

Astra would win the League in 2013-2014, but Dublin International would win the Final, repeating as winners the next year, 37-31 over UCD, after Astra had won the League only to be shocked by UCD in the Semi-Finals.

The 2015-16 season would see Dublin International win the double, again defeating UCD in the Final, on a scoreline of 27-21. Dublin City Handball would finally get their hands on the Trophy in 2016-17, winning the double by beating Astra 26-18 in the Final. After winning the League again in 2017-18, Dublin City would fall short in the Final, losing 28-26 to Dublin International, the old guard winning back the Trophy they had won every second year since 2012.
