When Pat Clarke passed away in 2006, Meteors wanted to keep her memory alive. The Division 1 team at the time was made up of nearly all the same girls that Pat has coached way back in St Mary's Youth club in 1987 so the Club decided it would be a fitting tribute to host an annual pre-season tournament, for Senior teams across the country.
The Pat Clarke tournament has fast become a highlight of the basketball calendar and it sees teams travelling from all four corners of the country to complete.
Sadly for the first time ever the tournament did not go ahead due to Covid19.
2021 will be even bigger and better.
Pat Clarke Tournament 2019/2020
The tournament was of high standard. Well done to Trinity Meteors, University of Limerick, Swords Thunder and Meteors on reaching the semi final. The final was won by Trinity Meteors after a great final against Swords Thunder.
Congratulations to our own Sarah Kenny who was awarded MVP.
