Glorious Season Comes to Honourable Close

Coaches Sean Ingle and Peter Gahan have led their U16 Boys basketball Team on a rollercoaster ride this season, but one with many more ‘ups’ than ‘downs’.  The highpoint was definitely the glorious ‘double’ when the U16s joined the U19s as Ireland East B Plate Champions.  Luke Gilleran and Colin Bolger shot out the lights in both games as the whole school rooted them on rapturously.  It was one of those days, and games, when everything went perfectly so perhaps it was unrealistic to expect a repeat performance in the All-Ireland B Cup Semi-Final vs. Coláiste an Spioraid Naoimh, a longtime member of school basketball royalty.  The boys endured a long bus ride to Limerick as well as ‘home-cooking’ refereeing but still fought valiantly to the last whistle as their season ended just one step from the national summit.  Well done to the coaches and all the team members for taking us all on a memorable ride this year and we look forward to next season!
