National Basketball Award for Scart’s Denise

Denise Dunlea from Scartaglin was honoured at the weekend and presented with the Basketball Ireland Division 1 Ladies U-23 Player of the Year Award.

Denise who plays with Team Tom McCarthy’s /St Mary’s was nominated for this award in April by Basketball Ireland along with three players from other clubs. All the clubs which participated in the Division 1 ladies competitions voted in late April on the awards and Denise was picked as the worthy winner.

Denise was presented with her award at the National Basketball Arena in Dublin on Saturday night and was accompanied to the ceremony by her parents Eileen and Jerh and her sisters Aoife and Amy.

As you will see from this collection of photographs – of Denise and her various team-mates from over the years of her Basketball career – she’s no stranger to success and long may it continue.
