Blue Demons Basketball Club celebrate 50 years
October 19, 2016
Blue Demons basketball club are celebrating their Golden Jubliee this year following its foundation in 1966.
To mark the occasion, a special yearbook has been released that tracks the history of the club since its formation, through the highs and lows and many successes.
A special Golden Jubliee Gala was held to celebrate the gala, with a number of the original players and founding members from 1966 in attendance.
Speaking about the occasion, Chairperson Jim Dineen stated: “It was great to have all these Demons together again after 50 years for what was a night to remember."
“While we as a club have been very successful on the court, to paraphrase the quote by Dan Byrne in the 50th yearbook ‘the journey was the reward: the friendship, camaraderie, passion, sorrow and excitement. It was never dull."
"The journey we all experienced and embarked on together 50 years ago and that so many have joined with us throughout the lifetime of Blue Demons, this journey, has truly been the reward and long may the Demons experience continue.”
Copies of the publication are available to purchase @€10 per copy from any member of the committee and at any home game in the Mardyke Arena.
