Coláiste Oiriall under 16 boys bowed out of the Basketball Ireland league at the All-Ireland quarter-final stage in the National Basketball Arena...

In Tallaght when they were defeated by Tullamore College. They were missing two of their key players. D’fhéad siad imirt níos fearr agus dá mbeadh an fhoireann uilig ar fáil d’fhéad siad an cluiche a bhaint.

In the pool stages of the competition they defeated Largy College, Cluain Eois with Conall Ó Harpáin as the top scorer. Cillian O Haicéid scored 6 points in the opening quarter. Donncha O Anluain contributed 11 points in the second half and Oiriall ran out winners 38-27. The top scorer was Conáll O Harpain. The Beech Hill College game saw great performances from Ciaran O Dughaill. Liam O hAmaill and Oisin O Raghallaigh. Against St Clares, Ballyjamesduff, Donncha O Anlúin scored a massive 7 three pointers and Oiriall ran our comfortable winners. In the final pool game against Coláiste Dhún a Rí, Kingscourt the Oiriall boys managed to clinch the game on the buzzer by a single point with the game finishing 39-38. Chaill Coláiste Oirall in eadán Choláiste De La Salle, Dún Dealgan ach chonaic muid taispeántas ar dóigh uathu in eadán Ballymakenny College. D’imir Jeaic O Cearrullain ról an-tábhachtach agus bhí Reuben Ó Seirideáin agus Cillian Ó Haiceid fíormhaith sa chosaint.

The team was victorious in the All-Ireland play-off tournament hosted in the school. A good team performance saw the boys play in the All Ireland series in last month where they defeated teams from Galway and Donegal. Bhuaigh gasúraí Oiriall an dá chluiche in eadán Magh Ene College, Bundoran (42-33) and Merlin College, Doughiska, cathair na Gaillimhe (49-33). Their reward was a trip to Tallaght on 10th February to play in the All-Ireland quarter-final where they finally succumbed to the Offaly team.

Bhí painéal an-mhaith imreoirí ann i rith an tseasúir, imreoirí mar Jeaic O Cearrullain, Cillian O Haicéid, Donncha O Anluain, Conáll O Harpain, Ciaran O Dughaill. Liam O hAmaill, Oisin O Raghallaigh agus Reuben Ó Sirideáin.
