Cork City Council hosts Civic Reception for Blue Demons Basketball Club

The Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr. Brian Bermingham, and Cork City Council hosted a Civic Reception in City Hall, Cork on Tuesday, 2nd June 2009 for Blue Demons Basketball Club to recognise the club’s achievements in the 2008/2009 season.

The Lord Mayor paid tribute to the club’s longevity and reputation in the sport and commended the club’s volunteers for their continued work at underage level: “Blue Demons is, as marketing people might tell us, a marquee name - a basketball brand.  It is, and has been for decades, synonymous with basketball in the city. Now that basketball is enjoying something of a renaissance in the city in both the women and men’s game, it is still a top club. I congratulate the club for its ongoing work at underage level and its continued competitiveness at all levels.”
