Report

This was to be Ireland’s last International outing until 2016, as Basketball Ireland put the National Program on hold to facilitate paying off the €1.4 Million debt it had accrued.

Ireland won two matches against Luxembourg, but otherwise had a disappointing campaign, losing all other 6 matches, only really coming close against Slovakia (two 7-point losses.).
