The abandoned handball courts of Ireland

Photography // Sunday, June 01, 2014
There are roughly around 700 abandoned handball courts spread throughout Ireland that once served not only a place for athletics, but as a spot for people to socialize and dance. After the ‘50s, handball moved indoors leaving the outside courts to be demolished or used for storage or parking lots. Photographer Kenneth O Halloran spent some time last year visiting hundreds of them and documenting their deteriorated appearance.
