A handball game in progress at the GAA's (Gaelic Athletic Association) court in Croke Park, Dublin, on 6 May 1984. One man is preparing to strike the ball, watched by his opponent. Both players are wearing kneepads and 'Top Ace 84' singlets.
RTÉ Television recorded the games (both national and international) held at this venue and broadcast them as 'Top Ace '84 - International Handball'. The 1984 series was televised in seven parts from 21 November 1984. It featured the national and international championships, which were held on two differently-sized courts at Croke Park. The international or American-style court is the smaller of the two at 40x20 feet, rather than the standard 60x30 Irish court.
