Killarney will have a team in the Women’s National Basketball League for the first time since 2012.

St. Paul’s Killarney return to the top flight this season after winning the Women’s Division 1 National Cup last term.

Head coach James Fleming returns to his home club, after being involved with Fr. Mathews and Limerick Celtics in recent seasons. His aim is to establish the team as a competitive force, with Canadian Sophia Paska and Irish underage international Leah McMahon already committed to the team.

“We’re delighted to be back in the league, we have several signings from Team Garvey’s St. Mary’s, including former St. Paul’s Killarney player Rhiann O’Shea.

"We also have current Ireland U16 international Leah McMahon and also a number of other former St. Paul’s Killarney players, who have played internationally, such as Lynn Jones and Cassandra Buckley.

"We’ve also recruited Canadian Sophia Paska, who I worked with at Limerick Celtics last year, and American Yuleska Ramirez Tejeda, who was MissQuote.ie Division 1 Player of the Year last season, while playing with Limerick Sport Huskies.”

The Killarney team is one of five new teams to enter the MissQuote.ie Division 1 for the 2022/23 season.

Virginia-based McEvoy’s Cavan Eagles will be joined by three new entrants from Dublin - Oblate Basketball Club, McGowan’s Tolka Rovers and Abbey Seals Dublin Lions.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
