Donegal schools in All-Ireland final next week

Coláiste Cholmcille Under 16 B Girls Basketball team head to the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght next Monday to take on Regina Mundi, Cork, in the All Ireland Final of the Subway Schools Cup.

Abbey Vocational School, Donegal will play St. Aloysius College, Cork in the SUBWAY® U16 C Girls All-Ireland Schools’ Cup Final also on Monday, 25th January at 13:30 in the National Basketball Arena, Tallaght.

The Ballyshannon girls' campaign began back in October when they won their first match 49-23, and they remained strong all the way through to the semi-final in December. Coláiste Cholmcille showed great fight and determination in the semi-final, making it a very intense but exciting game of basketball.

The teams were neck and neck the whole game with the opposition just edging ahead by one or two points in the first three quarters, but secured their place in the final with fivespoints to spare.
