Three different underage teams will represent Scoil Phobail Sliabh Luachra Rathmore in the final stages of the All-Ireland schools basketball competition over the next few weeks.

All matches will be played at the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght – the most prestigious basketball stadium in Ireland.

On Wednesday next the school’s U14 boys' team face St Malachy's of Belfast in the All-Ireland semi-final for that age group.

If they are successful they will play either Calasanctius College, Oranmore or Coláiste Éanna from Dublin in the All-Ireland final later that day.

The following day (February 17) the school’s U15 squad are in action in another semi-final. They face St Patrick's College, Cavan and if they win that match they will also play an All-Ireland final later in the day.

One team from the school has already qualified for their final. The school’s U16 team will play in the All-Ireland League final on March 3.

“This is a fantastic achievement for a small school and shows the commitment by management and staff to the basketball programme in SPSL,” Coach Jim Hughes said. “This is down to the dedication of the lads in the teams who never miss training and also all the hard work being done by Gneeveguilla and Rathmore Ravens basketball clubs feeding the school with talent.”
