Description   A reception for the 'Top Ace '84' handball tournament, in Montrose House on the RTÉ premises at Donnybrook, Dublin, in April 1984. From left to right; Michael O'Carroll (RTÉ Television producer), Michael Keating, Tom Morrissey (handball player), Liz Howard, Joan O'Callaghan and Gerry Hayes. A report on this launch was published in the RTÉ staff magazine, 'Access', on 10 May 1984.

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.
