Two talented south Kilkenny racquetball players have made it into the national team.

Ken Cottrell from Glenmore and Mark Murphy from Muckalee will be travelling to Cali, Colombia, in August for the World Championships, having been called up to the Irish racquetball team.

This will be Ken's first time representing Ireland and Mark's second time at the world's. Both men will be training hard for the next few months and said they are looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead on the court. Along with the rest of the players, the duo will have to fundraise the majority of the trip themselves so anyone wishing to donate can contact them at or 086 3604192 and or 087 2599014.

Cllr Fidelis Doherty congratulated the Kilkenny men on their success and wished Ken and Mark the best of luck in August.
