Tributes Paid To Handball Legend Michael ‘Ducksie’ Walsh After He Passes Away Aged 50
By Conor O'Leary

Tributes were paid last night after the news that handball legend Michael 'Ducksie' Walsh passed away aged 50. Walsh has been suffering from a short illness. He fell ill after returning from a doubles tournament on Saturday.

Walsh is the most decorated handballer of all time. He won 16 All-Ireland 60x30 senior singles titles, and seven 40x20 All-Ireland senior singles titles.

Just two weeks ago, he defeated number one ranked Eoin Kennedy to win the inaugural Irish 60x30 singles nationals. He was ranked as the number two player in the most recent Irish 60x30 rankings.
