1st Year All Ireland Basketball Playoffs


First Year All Ireland Basketball Play Offs

On April 23rd we hosted one of the Play Offs pools. Teams from Cork, Clare and Dublin travelled in the hope of qualifying for the All Ireland Semi Final.

Play commenced at 9.30am with Loreto Clonmel against a very strong team from Blarney, Co Cork. The Cork team were very strong and even though Loreto played very well, Blarney were the winners.

Next for our Girls were St Josephs Cluny, Dublin, we started this match well scoring 6 baskets without reply, we continued this pace and won the match well.

In our final match against Kilrush CS, it was basket for basket all the way till the last quarter when we pulled away from them to win by 12 points.

In the other games Blarney proved too strong for all the teams and won all three and are now in the All Ireland Semi final.

Loreto Clonmel did themselves proud and improved match by match. All good signs for next year.

Many thanks to all who helped out during the day. Thanks also to Lenny the Lion who was our mascot for the day.
