Castlebar Girls Compete at World Racquetball Championships

Castlebar racquetball athletes, Majella Haverty and Katie Kenny compete at the 15th IRF World Championships in Seoul South Korea from 13th - 21st August. Ireland send just four players to these Championships, two men and two women. Both Majella and Katie are experienced juniors having competed at the World Juniors Championships previously and make their first appearance for Ireland at senior level. Currently Majella is ranked number 2 in Ireland and Katie is ranked number 5.  In 2008 , Ireland was in 10th place overall at the 14th Championships which were held in Kingscourt,  Co Cavan. Any improvement on that position will be a major achievement for an under strength Irish team.
