Now that is a slick shot.

Wexford student Niall Keys had the whole school cheering when he landed a super-slick trick shot on the basketball court yesterday.

The fifth year student at Creagh College, Gorey took a steady run towards the basket, before throwing the ball against the opposite wall and watching it swoosh through the hoop.

And it's not his first time doing it either.

"I've done it twice before," Niall (17) told

"I managed it last year and the teacher asked me to do it for the camera again after PE yesterday...

"I did it, but the video didn't work so I had to do it again!"

Niall, who plays soccer for the school, isn't a regular on the basketball court but said he's confident he could do it again.

"I'd do it again no problem!" he said.

Anyone up for the challenge?
