Bray People - - SPORT -

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.
