The Primary School Super Sevens senior basketball finals met all expectations, drawing a full house to the Presentation Gym in Killarney.

This year the event was held under the new title sponsorship of the Credit Union.

The Senior finals featured two stand-out Grand Slam Cup winners, Currow girls and Scartaglen boys, both of whom remained unbeaten with seven wins each to claim their respective titles. The tournament was exceptionally successful for both schools, as Currow also secured the Junior Girls cup and Scartaglen the Junior Boys cup at the end of May, achieving a unique double triumph.

The finals night also saw the announcement of the All Star teams for 2024 to conclude this year’s event that commenced in early April with 80 teams and over 900 players and coaches participating.
