Rhode GAA have decided to honour the special achievements of two men who had a very successful 2016 at this year’s Dinner Dance. The Fahy Handball Club Man and Former Rhode GAA Chairperson Joe Masterson was elected last February as the Next President of the GAA Handball Association his term begins this year. As Rhode GAA Chairman he brought the club to great heights and there is no doubting that Joe will do the same for GAA Handball.
