Keane’s SuperValu Killorglin have lost the President’s Cup Final.

They went down 69-64 to Ballincollig.

The sides were level three times in the fourth quarter alone, but 11 points in those ten final minutes from Cameron Clark and a vital block from Ronan O’Sullivan with 15 seconds left sealed a win that will not be forgotten in the club for many years to come.


Having entered the National League just this year, Ballincollig’s journey to club glory is certainly one to savour and, an MVP display from Clark along with determination, grit and sheer will, got them over the line in the end – and now, the promise is that there’s more to come.

“Watch out world,” said winning Head Coach Kieran O’Sullivan. “Cameron Clark showed why he’s the best player in. This is just the beginning.”
