Pride of place this week goes to our u16 Boys Basketball team who were crowned Community Games National Champions over the weekend.
In their semi final on Saturday against Malahide of Dublin they ran out 48-37 winners following a game that was much closer than the final score would suggest.
This qualified them for the Final on the Sunday against Maree of Galway where another ding dong battle took place.Our boys showed great heart and skill to ensure that when the final buzzer went it was they who would be going home with the Gold medals winning on a 48-44 scoreline.
Certainly this is a marvellous achievement by all involved to bring an All Ireland title to the Parish.
Special mention must be made of coach Jack Culloty who has put in hours of preparation to achieve this accolade.
