A SPE­CIAL note of thanks to Drogheda Bul­lets Bas­ket­ball Club who took our un­der­age play­ers for four weeks as part of Bas­ket­ball Ire­land’s GAA/Bas­ket­ball Cross­over Pro­gramme.

The min­i­mal over­lap be­tween the play­ing sea­sons means that bas­ket­ball of­fers an op­por­tu­nity toplay a fun and skill­ful sport through the win­ter. We hope that many of the chil­dren fol­low on to play with the Bul­let and Sparks clubs and the Long­shots Academy over the win­ter months.
