Roll of Honour 1961-2017
Composite Table of Wins
The Irish Nationals for Women were started in 1995, with Antrim providing the lions share of winners – the top three spots on the Roll of Honour belong to Fiona Shannon (6 wins), Aisling Reilly (5 wins) and F. McKenna (4 Wins) – all Antrim.
The most recent champion has been Caitriona Casey of Cork who has won the last two, while B. Hennessey of Limerick (3 wins) and Kerry’s M. Daly and Canada’s L.F. Gilmore (1 apiece) complete the list of winners.
Handball is one of the Gaelic Athletic Association’s Charter sports of 1884. It is played on a court with three walls, and is very similar to the Handball played in America, Australia, Canada, and the variations on Handball, Pelota and Wallball played throughout Western Europe, and are all probably of the same origin.
