Head coach Kelleher selects Ireland U18 men's panel

Ireland U18 men's head coach Paul Kelleher has made his selection of 29 players for the Ireland U18 men's panel. In the panel, there are 7 players currently abroad, with 22 Ireland-based players. Also of note is is the youth of the panel, with 11 of the players selected having been born in 2005.

Head coach Paull Kelleher spoke on the selection process, and what this group of players have to offer:

"We have had a nice trialing process and one that we feel has brought 29 players to the fore. This is a young group, a group with a lot of dynamism, talent, and flexibility. We are excited to start getting into real work with them in December."

The Ireland U18 men's team will compete in the FIBA U18 European Championships in 2022, which take place in Oradea, Romania  at the end of July 2022.
