We at Northwood Technology are very proud to be the sponsors of local basketball club DCU Mercy. They are having a fantastic season so far this year with the under 16’s remaining unbeaten in the league. This is a great achievement for this wonderful group of students.
DCU Mercy, formally known as Mercy Basketball Club, was established in 1989 by Mark and Annette Ingle. The girls are all students at Mercy College in Coolock and their home venue is DCU sports complex in Glasnevin just down the road from Northwood Technology.
The under 16’s team has been promoted to the 16(1) league this season after having finished second overall in the under 15(2) league last season. The team also has the honour of having 2 capped Irish players.
Their success is not only great for the school and the local area but an inspiration for the younger players coming up. The team have a great following and always have a good group of supporters whenever they are playing. They are a very determined group of girls and they really put inthe effort to win. Head coach Stephen Ingle has been working hard training the team and the results speak for themselves.
Sponsoring this team is something that Northwood Technology are very pleased to do. As s successful distributor of security products it’s a great way for us to give back to the local community. We especially like the fact that we are encouraging young students to be involved in sport. It gives them a great foundation in life that will stand to them in future.
Our business has been based in the area for many years and it’s important to give back to the community and to do it through sport is a very positive thing to do. Team Manager Paul Hennessy is delighted that Northwood Technology can support the team in providing the funding for sports kit and supplies that will help the team in their efforts. While it is great to support any team, it is especially good to be the sponsors of such a successful team.
Fixtures continue to the end of March and with such a great start to the season there really is no stopping this team. To see how the team are progressing check out their new website. Northwood Technology hope to continue this support of DCU Mercy Basketball Team for many years to come.
