LIMERICK Celtics' boys teams had an amazing 2019 – 2020 despite missing out on the last three months of the season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Celtics' boys had won the Cork Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16 Division One Cup Finals in December 2019 and had also won 11 other National, Regional and local titles.

The boys started the season winning the under 16 and Under 14 Limerick Academy tournament and continues to play great basketball for the course of the season.

Celtics Under 10 and under 11 boys gave great accounts of themselves in all games in Cork and at home this season.

The boys put in some super displays in their away games against some strong Cork opposition. Celtics Under 12 team won the Cork Cup, were tied in first place in the Cork Division One league and were top of the North Munster league and had also qualified for the Under 12 A Cup Final.

The under 13 boys were Cork Cup runners up and had won the Becky Macauley tournament event earlier in the season.

The under 14 boys were unbeaten in all Cup and league competitions and were Cork Cup Winners 2019, Cork league winners, Limerick Academy tournament winners, North Munster league winners and had reached the final of the North Munster Cup when sport was shut down.
