Underage success with the club and in Coláiste Choilm secondary school put him on course for international recognition.
In his final year with the northside club, O’Sullivan completed a masters in public health in UCC where he won an all-star award in the 2017/2018 season. On completion of his studies, an opportunity opened up in England to play for Reading Rockets.
“I also picked up quite a bad ankle injury in January that season and I missed out on 10 games and eventually ended up averaging 11 points, four rebounds and three assists over the season.”
“I knew coming into the season what would lay on myself and the other full-timers within the squad, as it was a whole new experience to our local players.”
“This season I captained my club team where my team-mates spoke German, Croatian, Lebanese, and Lingala before they spoke their broken English. It can be funny sometimes when you take a step back and look at what you have just come through.”
“My home club have made massive strides in the last few years and next season they will compete in the Men’s Super League. I have the summer to weigh up my options.”
“Playing for the senior men’s Irish team has been a great experience and something I would love to continue to play as long as I can.”
I have no doubt he will continue to wear the green jersey where ever he plays next season.
