Pauline Wins Western People Mayo Sports Star Awards 2012 in Handball
Pauline Gallagher - Swinford Handball Club
Congratulations to Pauline Gallagher from Swinford Handball Club, who won "The Western People Mayo Sports Star Awards 2012" in Handball. This latest award follows on from the success of winning her first World Gold Medal, at the World Handball Championship which was held last October in the Citywest Hotel in Dublin, and she also became the first Mayo person ever to do so!
Pauline was also named as Female player of the year by the Connacht Handball Council, at last weeks monthly meeting at the Gaa Centre of Excellence in Bekan. Pauline will receive her award at the Gaa Handball All-Star Awards which will be held in Croke Park on Saturday, February 9th.
Swinford Handball Club would also like to congratulate Aaron Mc Loughlan, also from Swinford, who won " The Western People Mayo Sports Star Awards 2012" in Karate. Aaron is currently ranked third best in Europe and at number 13 in the world.
What makes both these awards special is that not only are both Pauline and Aaron from Swinford, they are in fact also from the same Village of Derryronane!
Surely that must be a first for the history books!!
