genuine question

are there any professional players in Ireland? or are they more semi pro like in GAA?

Can someone live out of basketball in here?

my guess would be NO but maybe someone can shed some light.

There are professional players in ireland but they're not irish..And no you couldn't really live out of basketball here. There are some Irish players that make a living from basketbal (e.g. Colin O Reilly) but go to europe to get paid. Just no money in the Irish game at all

On the nat league front what do people think of Neptune's signing of Conor Grace? Think it puts them right up there as their yank looks impressive also
I knew how bad it was just did not want to bring it up.
The lad with Iona looks a bit of a player all the same and i seen Conor up in the stadium this morning and he looks a player big time.

How are they paying him?

He would be a higher level then most of the Americans for the past ten years or so.
