• The Ireland U20 women’s team scooped a big opening day victory at the FIBA U20 Women’s European Championship Division B in Kosovo this afternoon, running out 63-53 point winners over Ukraine.

    Kiltimagh woman Dayna Finn was one of the many standouts for the squad on the day, leading her team home with a 20-point game along with seven rebounds and four assists.

    She captained the U18’s to second place in the European championships, narrowly losing out in the showpiece.

    The Mayo Ladies footballer is the vice-captain of the women’s U20 team and she hopes to go one better this year.
