In this latest instalment of Inside Basketball, Jarlath is joined by Tralee Warriors legend Kieran Donaghy. Kieran is also the proud holder of four All Ireland medals, eight Senior Championship medals and three National League titles with the Kerry Senior Football Team and, as a result, he is in the perfect position to provide a fascinating insight into Irish amateur sport. Kieran details how he fell in love with basketball and how he juggled playing both basketball and gaelic football at a high level. In a fascinating discussion, Kieran also offers his thoughts on the resurgence of basketball in Ireland and how it can be made to appeal to families across the country. From his ridiculous story of playing in a court Miami with the Kerry Senior Football team to what he loves about the unquantifiable nature of basketball, why athletes who play multiple sports make less mistakes and much more, this conversation offers a rare insight into the world of Irish basketball.
