Over the weekend, Beckerich honoured the late politician Camille Gira with a handball tournament in his memory.
On Saturday, teams HC Atert Réiden, Red Boys 2, Chev Dikrech 2, and Mich & Friends played at the tournament in the Beckerich sports hall. On Sunday, two teams from the Luxembourgish Handball Federation played alongside a celebrity team and an RTL team.
Gira had been the mayor of Beckerich since 1990 and remains an important figure, even after his passing. The politician collapsed while delivering a speech in the Chamber of Deputies on 16 May 2018 and later died of heart failure.
