In the last three years boys basketball re started in Coláiste na Sceilge, It has gone from strength to strength under the guidance of John Teahan in the last 2 yrs.
2012 – 13 Saw them winning out Kerry in the 2nd yr league which got them through to the south west regional finals held in U.L. where they had hard luck to be beaten in the final, however they still got a place in the all Ireland play offs which were held in bantry on Sunday 28th April, an early start of 6.30 with a convoy of parents driving the team there. Here they won three tough matches to qualify for the all Ireland semi- final in ul on 10th may. The winning streak unfortunately came to an end here in the semi final. This is a great success for the boys and is down to the hard work long hours of training with john teathan, coupled with all the support and encouragement from their parents class mates and the teahcers and staff here at C.N.S., my phone was beeping all the way to limerick with good luck texts.
The boys were really disappointed to be defeated in U.l. but by the time we returned to Caherciveen that evening (5 hrs later) we were all looking forward to next September and playing as U16’s a testament to the resilience of these boys.
