Tullamore basketballer selected for Irish women's U16 team

Ireland U16 women’s head coach Laura Mullally has named her final 12-person squad ahead of the FIBA U16 Women’s European Championship, which takes place in Montenegro from August 10 to August 19.

Úna O'Brien, from Tullamore, has made the squad that will be travelling to Montenegro soon.

Ireland’s U16 women, who finished runners up in the Four Nations last month, will face Sweden, Bulgaria and Montenegro in their FIBA U16 Women’s European Championship group.

Head coach Mullally said: "We have had an incredible journey together, every young lady during her time with the extended squad contributed to our betterment and improvement as a programme. It is of course the most difficult part of the job to make team selections - at this point we are splitting hairs. However, our staff is excited for the potential of this group of young ladies. The women are stepping up as leaders and as basketball players, showing a continued commitment to being dedicated to individually and collectively achieving our goals. We know we have a big task at hand in continuing our preparation for the FIBA European Championship, but we are excited to work."

The full Irish U16 Women’s squad is as follows:

Andrea Chrislyn Jude (Meteors) Aoibheann Donnelly (Belfast Star), Ciara Brogan (Liffey Celtics), Faye McDonnell (Kilkenny Stars), Francesca Kyamagero (Cobh), Helena Keane (Meteors), Kaitlyn Summers (Kilkenny Stars), Kira Lynch (Meteors), Ríodhna McGrath (Meteors), Sidney Quinn (Gill St Bernard’s, New Jersey), Sophie Staunton (Oblate), Úna O'Brien (Tullamore BC).
