National Cup Finals Weekend – TCC Diary

TCC were on site at the National Basketball Arena, Dublin, and we are excited to bring you our favourite interviews and photos from Basketball Ireland’s biggest event of the year.

Special thanks must go to our photographer, Nerijus Kundrotas (Sportshots.eu) for his tremendous talent.

TCC would also like to congratulate Basketball Ireland on a top class basketball event. It was great to see the Arena jam-packed with enthusiastic basketball fans.

Also, to all those who took part in our interviews – we appreciate you taking time to speak with us.

About

Tony McGaharan

Tony started playing basketball when he was 11, after realising that he couldn’t kick a ball. Enjoying every opportunity to be around the game, Tony has been a player, scorekeeper, referee, coach and MC. In 2009, he coached women's basketball in Sweden for a season with the Umeå Comets (now bought over by Udominate). He then returned home and worked with PeacePlayers International, which uses the game to bring young people together from divided communities. Tony has since taken on a role in Google and has worked in Dublin and Singapore. He is now based out of London, playing for a local London D2 team, the United Nations Basketball Club.
