After winning the South-East regional finals in the Basketball Ireland competition in the W.I.T. Arena, the Bridgetown College Under-19 girls' team qualified for the All-Ireland play-offs.

Four tournaments were held around the country on Saturday, January20, with one hosted by Bridgetown College.

Our Lady of Mercy (Drimnagh), Ballincollig Community School and Coláiste Mhuire (Ennis) all travelled to Bridgetown and six exciting games, with a high level of basketball skills, were played. 

The Bridgetown girls showed great enthusiasm and heart. Their hard work and training paid off and, much to the delight of their supporters, the girls secured two out of three wins.

They beat Ballincollig Community School and Coláiste Mhuire but unfortunately lost to Drimnagh who won out the tournament and now progress to the All-Ireland semi-finals.

Staff, students and parents are very proud of the girls and grateful to their supporters and all those who helped to organise the event.
