Donegal woman just misses out on finals at World Handball Championships


Donegal's Avril McNamee has just missed out on a place in the finals at the World Handball Championships in Canada.

Competing in the Women's Singles Small Ball A category she lost out 21-12, 21-5 against Clodagh McManamon of Mayo at the semi-final stage.

Then in the Women's Singles Small Ball B category she went even closer, eventually just losing in a tie-breaker against American Kristina Rude 21-14, 19-21, 11-9.

However, it was a great experience for the Sean MacCumhaill's representative who did her county and country proud.
