Men’s National League Basketball Coming Back To Killarney

Men’s National League Basketball is coming back to Killarney.

Basketball Ireland has confirmed that an application from the St. Paul’s club for a place in Division One has been accepted.

The Killarney side plan to acquire the services of an American player and are also likely to include at least two European players.

The rest of the squad will be made up of local Killarney players.

St. Paul’s hope to reach out to other clubs in the East Kerry area where a structured link would allow some of these players to play national league basketball.

Basketball Ireland have yet to announce the structure of the League next season but it is possible that it may consist of a Northern and Southern conference.

St. Paul’s Basketball Club Chairman is Padraig Weldon

Titans from Co. Galway, who came bottom of the Men’s Division One League last year, successfully reapplied for the Division this year, and will be joined by Portlaoise Panthers, Ballincollig BC and LIT Celtics.
