Our Journey to Superleague
While Moycullen has fielded a men’s team in competitions dating back to 1966, the club saw a rapid rise in prominence at senior men’s level from 1998 onwards. In the year that Sam Maguire crossed the River Shannon for the first time in 32 years, another historic milestone was reached – Moycullen won their first ever Galway League Division 1 title. The men of ’98 added the Galway Cup and never looked back, entering the National League for the 1998/1999 season.
Moycullen would play National League for the next decade, constantly challenging at the top of the table against clubs from far bigger playing populations.
With a bedrock of experienced players from the decade of Division 1 success and as a flock of youth internationals came of age to swell the senior ranks, Moycullen entered the Superleague for the 2009/2010 season, competing against the very best of Irish basketball on a weekly basis in Ireland’s premier league.
Bar a one year drop to Division One for the 2014/2015 season, we have maintained our Superleague status since that 2009/2010 season. This is a tremendous reflection on the hard work of the coaches and players involved and of the amazing support given to our flagship team by the club and wider Moycullen and Galway sporting community.
We are here to help media organisations who want to spread the good word and promote basketball in the west of Ireland.
