Club Chairman, Maurice Casey says it is great to have a senior team back in the spotlight.
“This is the biggest weekend of the year on the basketball calendar and it’s the one everyone wants to be a part of.
‘Best of Luck’ – Chairman Maurice
“It’s great to have a team from the club participating and I wish the girls and coach Liam Culloty the very best of luck,” said Maurice.
Coach, Liam Culloty came on board with the St. Mary’s ladies just last September. Liam previously played Super League with Tralee Tigers and National League with St. Brendan’s.
He has had national success coaching Tralee Imperials and has coached the Irish U-18 women’s team.
He is currently head coach for the Ireland U-17 women’s squad.
En-route to the final St. Mary’s had success over: Templeogue; Portlaoise Panthers and Maree. Many members of this squad have previously enjoyed national success at various levels but, regardless of this, they will not be taking anything for granted today.
