GAA Handball - Losing is Not an Option

Defending World Handball Champion, Cavan’s Paul Brady is part of a 15-strong Irish squad that will travel to Calgary, Canada to compete in the World Handball Championships from August 11th to 21st.

All eyes will be on the Cavan man in Calgary as he bids for an incredible fifth consecutive Men’s Open World title, a feat that has never been achieved before and is unlikely to ever be matched again.

Introduction to Handball

Handball is a growing sport around the world and in Ireland it has been re-branded as GAA Handball. This has given it new energy and people of all ages are playing the sport all over the country.

Handball History in Italy

See a report from northern Italy where the town of Rovigo aims to have the first combined GAA and Handball club in Europe.

Volunteers from the club worked into the night to build a One Wall so that a handball exhibition could be part of an historic weekend where Rovigo hosted a Gaelic Football Tournament for the very first time. Players from the renowned Sporting Club Nizza Monferrato showed their skills at the exhibition.
