About Us – Dublin Lions Basketball Club
The club is an amalgamation of three local clubs. Lucan Basketball Club which was founded in 1989, Leinster Lions who have been playing as Lions or Rathcoole for several years, and the Junior Section of the old Clondalkin Lakers Club. The Club was formed in the Summer of 2008 with just a handful of teams competing in the 2008-09 season and has since grown in size to one of the biggest clubs inn the country with over 20 teams active in the leagues along with 2 Academies.
The Club has had many players make International teams and county teams. We have also had several players receive scholarships from schools in the USA and the UK. One of our Alumni Aidan Igiehon will play this season 2019-202 for Louisiana in the AAC Division 1 college basketball in the USA which is a first for any Irish player.
The Club has this season for the first time in it’s history been promoted to the Irish Super League as a result from a huge effort by all of the players, coaching staff and many others. A special thanks to the team sponsors Abbey Seals without whom we would not have been in the position we are now.
We look forward to a great season
