Kilmac claims inaugural Kilray Cup
FOR the past year or so, a very popular card game takes place on a Thursday night in the Glencormac Inn.
Friends from Kilmacanogue and Bray play every week for a limited pot as the lounge is turned into an L.A. like a casino where chips (the one’s you can’t eat) are the new currency for the night.
The games are on an Individual basis but Daryl Tighe decided to see could he run a Kilmacanogue v Bray team competition over two weeks and the Glencormac Inn sponsored the ‘Kilray Cup’.
Trevor Carr was appointed captain of the local team with Ron Nicholson looking after the Bray lads. Of course it was unimaginable that anyone could allow those Bray lads come in and take away the trophy on its first ever appearance and the Kilmacanogue boys recorded a comprehensive victory.
Team captain Trevor Carr was delighted with the victory and thanked all the local boys. Trevor stated ‘As I follow Liverpool, I am not used to winning many trophies of late so it is nice to capture this one.’ And the message to Trevor, like Man United will show, the trick is to learn how to defend it next year.
