Fenaghs Donal Wrynn created his own piece of history at St. Comans, Roscommon, on Saturday following his eyecatching win in the GAA Handball All Ireland Minor Championship.
Wrynn had to come from behind against talented Wexford teenÓger, Galen Riordain, after losing the first 21-9 and he went on to provide a super exhibition of retrieving and precision killshots to claim the title on a 21-4, 21-8 scoreline sparking off wild scenes of celebration from the large Leitrim support. In fact every neutral spectator in the venue seemed to be with Wrynn as the crowd got behind him when he found his rhythm in the second match. In a very tense first match Wrynn struggled with Riordains serve trailing by 5 aces before he got serve. He held the lead briefly 9-6 before Riordan killed off the match. For the second game Wrynn looking much more composed stepped up a gear, changed his serve and totally dominated the game winning easily 21-4. In the Tie-Breaker Wrynn trailing 3-7 showed his class and scored 10 straight aces before going on to take match 21-8 and claim his First All-Ireland Title.
