There’s a fascinating interview with Maeve O’ Sullivan of the Portlaoise Panthers Basketball side now competing at the very top level in Irish Basketball on the Elverys Sports Blog site. Maeve charts the rise of the Panthers from the Midlands League all the way to the Super League. The Portlaoise Panthers player/coach pays tribute to all the coaching she got from a young age, most notably from the incomparable Pat Critchley. She points to the success of a fast-emerging U-18 side that got to the National Cup Semi-Finals this year for the first time ever as evidence that the future is very bright indeed for this incredibly successful club. Check out the ladies in action when they take on national powerhouse Killester. Click here for details of the game with Killester.
