Fun and games for Bray at Páidí Ó Sé Festival
BRAY EMMETS’ ladies made the big trip to line out in the senior ladies cup at the Lidl Comórtas Peile Páidí Ó Sé, the famed adult ladies and men’s Gaelic Football tournament and festival which took place last weekend across the Dingle Peninsula in Kerry.
A sun-filled Saturday all over West Kerry ensured the over 600 participating players were going to be in high spirits regardless of results on the field of play.
Now in its 28th year, there is far-reaching and unwaning enthu- siasm among clubs to experience the famed Gaelic football festival with visiting teams from 13 different counties, England and the United Arab Emirates taking part in adult men’s and ladies cups across junior, intermediate and senior grades which took place in Tralee and various West Kerry GAA grounds over Saturday and Sunday.
2016 Dublin league champions Ballyboden St. Enda’s Ladies were favourites going into thie four team senior competition and they didn’t disappoint.
Bray Emmets lifted the green flag nine times over two games which is pretty accurate in any language. They had a tough straight semi-final start against Louth county champions Stabannon Parnell’s and failed to fully ignite, losing 3-14 to 2-7.
The Bray girls did get another chance to tog out in the runners-up plate final against Boardsmill of Meath, eventually losing 7-4 to 8-12.
Ballyboden ran out winners of the a final beating Stabannon Parnell’s by 4-8 to 2-10.
