Our Basketball teams had a superb day in the Presentation Sports Complex recently last as they took part in the annual Margaret Curran Cup.

This tournament is now in its fifth year and last year was the first year Presentation primary won the trophy. Margaret Curran was a very dear colleague and friend to us here in the Pres. Margaret loved basketball and this tournament is organized each year in her honour.

This year we welcomed teams from Scoil Angela, Two Mile Borris, Templemore and Holycross.

Our two teams, Presentation Panthers and Presentation Pythons played in opposite groups and all 32 players enjoyed plenty of court time.

Afte a great day of play, Presentation Pythons faced off against St. Joseph’s, Templemore in the cup final. Martin Hehir, who helped organise this event, referred the game with help from TY students Holly, Lily, Julie and Jack.

After a thrilling game, Presentation came out on top on a scoreline of 15-8.

Co-Captains Aoife Ryan and Claire Lydon accepted the Margaret Curran Cup on behalf of a mighty bunch of players. Margaret’s husband Ger and son Jack were present to make the presentations.

Scoil Angela beat Holycross to finish third while Two Mile Boris won the Plate Final and also received medals.

Finally we thank Ms. Mary Bowe, Ms. Karen Bohan, Ms Noelle Nyhan and Ms. Ciara Fanning for coaching the girls for the past number of weeks.

Congratulation Girls! Pres abú!
