Thatís interesting reading gold. Was pj ohare a basket baller? Was he any good? I mind seeing big John Kennedy playing for st galls. If I remember rightly he was a notable basket baller too?

PJ and the MvGourtys and Michael Gribben were all big players on that team Fra Dick also great player and all turned out for the club, hurling and football!

Burn out is a myth! Those lads were playing in Ulster finals (2 in a row) mid 80ís

Apparently PJ was great as was Sean McGourty but just before my time.

Big John Kennedy was v strong, great player, as was his brother Paul, v classy player. Aidan Donnelly who played GAA for St Pauls and Antrim for years was a lightening fast point guard for St Galls as was his brother Fergie. All those men wouldve travelled serious miles to play away games in packed Saturday night halls in places like Cork and maybe drove home straight after.  Serious commitment but id say the craic was good too...the noise in Andytown leisure centre was serious...all us kids allowed on at half time to shoot...class times.
Andytown also hosted the Allstar Game 1 year (now defunct) which was basically just 6 foot 5, giant American players dunking on each other...the athleticism was off the charts to see up close...class occasion!

Great sport for helping control a ball in tight spaces and keeping your head up and eyes open.

The fitness levels to go up and down the court constantly is crazy, we played during PE classes at school and Iíve been pretty fit as a kid but i was gassed quickly during it.

I remember Maguire used to say you train at 3/4 pace with the odd burst in between. But it never felt like that. Remember Aidan playing too, serious spring

I never knew any of that about st galls. Basketball I haven't watched much of but used to play a bit with a friend growing up but he was a touch better than me and did some jump training so could dunk it on a 10 foot board. If there was something like that in belfast these days I'd likely go to it a bit.

Went to college in Belfast with a lad who played basketball for Dungannon back in the late 80's. I think they played in that league also.

Are those teams still on the go?

Aidan Donnelly (& maybe a brother or some other Belfast lad?) won A grade All Irelands with St Pat's Armagh. Remember him coming down to play in the past pupils blitz that used to be a big thing in Armagh too.

Stumbled across a 6 part mini-series called from 2017 Broken on Netflix that I hadn't seen discussed on here.

Sean Bean plays a priest in a poor part of Sheffield.
I found it enjoyable - well written and shot. Sean Bean puts in some great performances.

His versatility as an actor is sublime along with the range of accents he has!!  ;D ;D

To be fair I really like him but he doesn't stray too far from the comfort zone if there's anything decent being filmed in the north of England I'd say he gets the first call!

Yeah Dungannon/Tyrone Towers still play but arent Superleague anymore

Belfast Star as i said won this years All Ireland Superleague, beating Kieran Donaghys Tralee into 2nd spot. Games are played in La Salle School in Andytown. Great weekend entertainment and atmosphere....especially when a big game v Donaghy etc

Permission to ask a tv question on the basketball thread? Anyone seen Snowpiercer and is it worth a watch?

Little Fires Everywhere is decent on Amazon Prime. Had watched the trailer for that Snowpiercer today. Doesn't seem to my sort of show but nothing else to watch so might give it a go.
