Watch: Irish 15-Year-Old Hits An Insane 15 Three-Pointers In Schools Final

CJ Fulton - remember the name.

Today might have been the birth of an Irish sporting superstar.

It's a big week for Irish basketball with the Schools Cup finals taking place in the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght, while the men's and women's senior Cup finals will also take place there at the weekend.

Whatever happens over the next few days though, it will be hard to top the performance of a 15-year-old from Belfast earlier today, when St. Malachy's overcame St. Mary's from Tralee in the SUBWAY Under 16A Schools Cup final.

CJ Fulton, the son of Adrian Fulton, an Irish basketball legend, scored an astonishing 47 points in the game, hitting 15 (FIFTEEN!) three-pointers along the way. It might have been the best shooting display ever seen on an Irish court.

By half time, he had hit 11 3s and had left the crowd shell-shocked. By the end, he had more points on his own than the entire St. Mary's team. Fulton's performance was all the more remarkable in that his 45 points from behind the three-point line came from just 18 shots, an incredible strike rate.

Some of the crowd on hand, including Tralee's own Kieran Donaghy and Mike Quirke couldn't believe their eyes.
