Well done to the u18 girls and their coaches Ian and Teresa on their participation in the pre season tournament in Killester, Dublin. The girls had a great win in their first game against Liffey Celtics. They had narrow defeats in their next two games against DCU and Portlaoise Panthers. The girls showed great teamwork and skills in their first run out of the season. We look forward to seeing what is in store for them in the upcoming season. The day proved very enjoyable for supporters and players. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Killester Basketball Club for their hospitality and for hosting this tournament for such a great cause. Maith sibh uilig.
