Our First Year Boys Basketball team won their play-offs this week and will travel to the National Basketball Arena to play in the quarter/ semifinals. Dunmore CS hosted Belmullet & Newry on Monday in the All Ireland Play-offs. They were slow to start in the game against Belmullet and just held onto their lead on the final whistle. However, they had a great performance against Newry & won easily on a score line 38 to 6.
Best of luck to our First Year Boys when they play in the All Ireland Play-offs on Monday. Dunmore CS will host Belmullet & Newry & the winners will travel to Dublin on Friday to play in the next stage of the competition.
