Under 19 Basketball Update

Dominican College U19 Premier Basketball Team


Dominican College U19 Premier Basketball Team started off the 2008-2009 season as Dublin League Champions. This year their group consisted of Manor House, Raheny and St. Mary’s, Glasnevin. After coming top of the group, the U19’s drew St. Paul ’s, Greenhills in the quarter final. With a convincing win, a tough semi-final with Mount Sackville was inevitable, as they were their toughest competition last year. Unfortunately it was a narrow defeat. However, the U19 team are looking forward to the forthcoming Inter-Dominican Cup in Muckross at the end of March and retaining the Inter-Dominican title.


Dominican College U19 Premier Basketball Team: Julie Donohue, Ciara Horan, Kellie-Anne Payne, Paula Mahon, Gemma O’Leary, Aoife Darling(C), Laura McGrath(C), Lisa Dalderup, Michelle Coleman


Dominican College U19 Div 1 Basketball Team


Dominican College U19 division 1 Basketball Team had an extremely competitive League this year, playing teams such as Our Lady’s College, Drogheda, Skerries Community College (the eventual winners), St. Mary’s, Baldoyle,  Our neighbours Maryfield, and Santa Sabina of Sutton.
The girls put a tremendous display in all of their matches, going to extra time in some and narrowly defeated in others. They are looking forward to contesting the league again next year with hopefully more success.


Dominican College U19 Div 1 Basketball Team: Ailbhe Ni Mhaolagain, Ruth Bone, Deirdre O’Donoghue, Helen Broderick, Rebecca Finn, Jenny Maguire, Kelly McDonnell, Sorcha Nolan, Sinead Leonard, Meghan O’Reilly, and Viktoriya Novakivska.
