Hello Everyone,

Dublin International Handball Club hosted their 2018 Annual General Meeting in Phibblestown on Monday the 3rd of September.

Tomas Martinonis started by summarising the great 2017/2018 season achievements and laid out the coming season objectives.

Next took place the election of a new women’s player representative to the board and we are delighted to announce that Jehona Jashari, active women player and a key social member of the club accepted the position.

A new treasurer to the club also had to be elected this year and we are delighted to announce that Xabier Muñoz and Pedro Vasconcelos respectively accepted the position of Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer to the boad.

Regis Loubatière stepping down from the role of Treasurer will leave the board and concentrate on the club’s website. Velta Ryan stepped down from women’s player representative due to personal obligation  – we wish her all the best for the future and can only guarantee that she will be greatly missed on the pitch and off the pitch!

Thomas Grassl – DIHC’s president – after welcoming the new members to the board, exposed his summary of last season and his view of the coming season. Followed by a quick financial review – positive thanks to help provided by our sponsors.

The 2018/2019 season coaching team was then introduced to the club members present and will consist of Tomas Martinonis, Goran Seselj & Xabier Muñoz working as partners.

Tomas Martinonis also went through the changes in championship rules for the upcoming season.

Please help us welcome the new board members to their positions!  As well as wishing success to the new and experienced coaching team!

1, 2, 3, DI!


Today our boys played a friendly match against Irish National Team as part of their training camp in Gormanstown. Although boys arrived with just 9 players they put on a great show and won the match 30:35. With a few players not yet back from holidays some new members showed good skills ou our side today and we are very happy they managed to fit in the squad. Piero Forno (Chile), Matija Jelić (Croatia), Julien Nedelec (France) and our long “lost brother” Marius Deac who was out last season due to work obligations are the first newcomers in the team for this coming 2018/19 season. We have lots of time untill the beginning of the season and we are looking forward to working hard for the upcoming season and try to defend our title.
