A tribute to John Curran
November 09, 2018
Basketball Ireland wishes to express its condolences to the family and friends of John Curran who died tragically while in Capetown, South Africa.
John discovered Mini-Basketball while teaching in Ballyroan BNS and continued to support Mini-Basketball as Principal of The Good Shepherd National School in Churchtown.
He was involved at a time of rapid expansion of the sector then known as Mini-Sport, which was an Affiliated National Association of Basketball Ireland.
During that time, John served as Chairman of the National Primary Schools Mini-Basketball Committee and Chairman of the Dublin Primary Schools Mini-Basketball Committee.
John was also a founding member of Éanna Basketball Club.
May he Rest In Peace.
