Swim….Basketball…Swim…..Basketball…..a great weekend in Tralee

Well done to our young Under 12 boys who represented themselves, their club and their parents with great pride at the weekend in Tralee at the St. Brendan’s Basketball Tournament.

Great fun was had by all both on the swimming pool and on the basketball court.

Unfortunately the boys lost 2 of the 3 games they played (one of them b a cruel free throw shootout after the game ending all square at full time). Congratulations go to Sean for being awarded a place on the tournament’s All-Star team.

We made lots of new friends down in The Kingdom and they promise to come up and visit us for some challenge matches during the summer. We would like to thank St. Brendan’s for the invite and we look forward to making this an annual event.

It was great to see the whole squad in attendance and supported so well by their parents. Laura and myself would like to thank all the parents for their support throughout the season and for the very nice gift.

As usual there have to be some pictures so here they are.

Once again thank you all.

The hotel has it’s own leisure center so the parents might even get a chance to chill!
