Bray People - - SPORT -

SATUR­DAY promises to be a magic day for camogie in Wick­low with three county fi­nals up for de­ci­sion at Baltin­gass GAA grounds. Here we take a brief look at the Ju­nior and In­ter­me­di­ate fi­nals.


Kiltegan v An­nacurra at 12.30pm

Kiltegan and An­nacurra will get the day’s camogie off to a great start and both will be try­ing to rise up to In­ter­me­di­ate grade for 2018.

Kiltegan, with a mix of youth and ex­pe­ri­ence, will be well pre­pared by train­ers Jonathan Tal­lon and Stephen Coogan.

Tr­ish Ke­hoe will lead from the back with Elisha Ryan and Sarah Fen­nelly will hope to swing the game in favour of the west Wick­low girls.

An­nacurra have a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence too with Ais­ling, Ciara and Cara Shannon, Emma Doyle and Sarah Barnes all well able to step up to the mark for An­nacurra.

Sheila Barnes and Anne Lam­bert will have the An­nacurra girls in the right frame of mind for the fi­nal.



Bray Em­mets are the up an com­ing team in Wick­low and they have gained huge ex­pe­ri­ence from com­pet­ing in Dublin leagues.

At full-back, Bron­agh Mur­phy will lead her team and Jane But­ler and Ni­amh McCor­mack will be strong around the mid­dle of the pitch.

Avon­dale are a club who are re­group­ing fol­low­ing a re­cent de­cline. Joyce Hef­fer­nan, Stephanie Rat­tray (Cap­tain) Katie Kennedy along with Tanya McDon­ald will hope to bring Avon­dale back to Se­nior ranks.

Avon­dale man­agers Jimmy O’Shaugh­nessy and Hu­bert Doyle have a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence and are sure to have the girls in top gear for the fi­nal.
