The DCU Saints (a.k.a. Roma St. Vincent's) are an Irish basketball club that competes in the Premier League, Ireland's top basketball league. They play their home games at the DCU Sports Complex.

History[edit]

Basketball was first introduced in a school yard of St. Vincent's CBS by Brother O'Farrell in 1958. It took off in 1961 when Bill Casey, with the assistance of Brother Burke, took over from Brendan Buckley who was returning to his home town of Tralee. In September 1962, they registered with the ABBA and have since gone on to win league and cup titles at both local and national level.[1] In 1978–79, the club won its first title before going back-to-back in 1979–80, and later winning two more championships in 1993–94 and 2005–06.[2]
