First Year Luke Gilleran has been chosen for a prestigious team of Dublin All-Stars, due to play in an international tournament in Belgium this May. All the players come from top clubs in the greater Dublin area and Luke is no different: he plays for UCD-Marian, as well as being the anchor of St. Conleth’s First Year Team. And there is no coincidence that his coach for both school and club is Eoin Noctor. When Eoin was a student himself at St. Conleth’s he was known to be conscientious, polite and hard-working and he has channelled these qualities into coaching, with obvious success: We recently watched this U16s snatch the SDBL title and his First and Second Years are re-establishing St. Conleth’s on the basketball scene. Luke and his fellow First Years have beaten Colaiste Eoin, Holy Child and the High School, and lost to the formidable Pres-Bray at the buzzer. Colin Bolger has been to the forefront in the front-court with Luke but Mark Connor and Ted O’Kelly are rising stars. Second Years, led by Jamie MacMahon and Michael Cook, have beaten Marian, Benildus’s, Killian’s and the High School, with Suyash Patidar and Jack Doyle providing the stylish guard play. So, how do you be like Mike….or Luke? Come down to training at the school and over Easter attend the camp which Eoin runs for UCD-Marian.
