2 Clubs Put Friendship Aside For Final Shot

2 Clubs: Astra and UCD

2 Semi Finals, Men and Women

1 Opponent Waiting in the Final, Dublin International Handball Club

Sunday April 17th sees an unique situation when 2 clubs square up to each other in both the Men’s and Ladies Senior Semi Finals with the prize of a final appearance against the reigning champions.

The situation is unique because Astra HC was formed in the mid 2000’s by UCD Alumni in order that they could continue to play handball together after they graduated. Indeed the relationship is so strong between the 2 clubs they play a seasonal curtain raiser every year the “Corn Chothrom na Feinne” or Fair Play Cup.

UCD will have home advantage, whether it will guarantee a final appearance against DI only time will tell.

UCD Men vs. Astra HC Men 10.30 a.m.

UCD Ladies vs Astra Ladies 12.30 p.m.
