Expressions of interest from Secondary Schools requested for Doha 2018

The Irish Olympic Handball Association is seeking expressions of interest from Secondary Schools interested in representing Ireland at the International School Sport Federation (ISF) 2018 World Championships.
The ISF World Championships will take place in Doha, Qatar from 28/2-8/3 2018.
The IOHA has the opportunity to send one boys and one girl’s team.

Schools interested in participating at the ISF World Championships are invited to send a written request to the IOHA by May 10th, either by email to or to the Irish Olympic Handball Association, Irish Sports HQ, The National Sports Campus, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15.
If there are numerous applications the IOHA Board will examine each application with the winning school(s) entitled to travel to Qatar. Unfortunately the Irish Olympic Handball Association is not in a position to offer any financial aid to the schools involved.
