Corn na Mílaoise a won­der­ful suc­cess

Bray People - - Sport -

WITH OVER twen­ty­seven teams tak­ing part in the in­door foot­ball tour­na­ment for boys in rang a trí agus rang a ceathair, Corn na Mílaoise was in­deed a won­der­ful suc­cess.

The tour­na­ment took place in Round­wood GAA Hall and Ark­low and Lough­lin­stown Leisure Cen­tres. Tak­ing part in Ark­low were Gaelscoil Inbhir Mhóir, Ark­low BNS, Brit­tas Bay, Aughrim N.S. and Cross­bridge N.S. Round­wood was the venue for Scoil Chaoimhín Naofa Glendalough, St. Er­nan’s Rath­new, Scoil Pádraig Naofa Curtlestown, St. Pa­trick’s Val­ley­mount, St. Ni­cholas’ Dunlavin, Kil­bride N.S. and St. Lau­rence’s Round­wood. Mak­ing the trip to Lough­lin­stown were St. Fer­gal’s, St. Peter’s, St. Cro­nan’s, Scoil Chualann, Gael Scoil Uí Chéadaigh (all Bray), St. Brigid’s Grey­stones, St. Kevin’s Grey­stones, Kil­macanogue N.S., New­town, St. Pat’s Wick­low Town and St. An­thony’s Kil­coole.

A fea­ture of the tour­na­ment this year was the num­ber of schools that brought along a sec­ond team; such was the en­thu­si­asm of the young boys to play for their school.

Hope­fully next year we can per­suade more schools to do like­wise. Again it re­flects the phi­los­o­phy of the Go Games - less com­pe­ti­tion and more par­tic­i­pa­tion! All the young bud­ding stars had a min­i­mum of three games and made lots of new friends on the day.

Go raibh míle maith agat to Coach­ing Of­fi­cer Gareth Doyle for help­ing out on the day at the Round­wood venue.

Great credit is also to Pat Lynch Gaelscoil Inbhir Mhóir who helped or­ga­nize the Ark­low venue, and as usual to Dave Barry who not only made the nec­es­sary ar­range­ments for Lough­lin­stown, but also co-or­di­nated the en­tire tour­na­ment.


The 2009 Al­lianz Foot­ball Leagues get un­der way this week. There are three di­vi­sions, with Roinn a Dó di­vided into two sec­tions.

In each case the first named team has home ad­van­tage and is re­spon­si­ble for con­tact­ing the op­pos­ing time with re­gard to date, time and venue. The home team is also re­spon­si­ble for pro­vid­ing the ref­eree.
