Bray Em­mets pre­pare to crown Ire­land’s Kick Fada cham­pi­ons

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

BRAY Em­mets GAA Club will sep­a­rate the wheat from the chaff next week as they search for the male and fe­male GAA play­ers with the big­gest boot.

The 18th an­nual All-Ire­land Kick Fada com­pe­ti­tion takes place at the Bray club’s grounds at Old Con­naught Av­enue on Satur­day, Septem­ber 23.

The com­pe­ti­tion aims to find the long­est kick­ers, both male and fe­male. Last year, Mayo’s Fin­tan Ruddy won the men’s event fol­low­ing a great duel with Dublin’s Mark Vaughan while Ser­ena Han­non (Dublin) emerged vic­to­ri­ous in the women’s sec­tion to com­plete a five-in-a-row.

Com­peti­tors must ap­ply to en­ter this year’s com­pe­ti­tion and can do so by email­ing al­lire­land­kick­ be­fore Mon­day, Septem­ber 18. This is to en­sure that or­gan­is­ers can run both com­pe­ti­tions in the most ef­fi­cient man­ner for those who have to travel long dis­tances to com­pete.

The club is also host­ing a free fam­ily fun day in con­junc­tion with the Kick Fada. Open to mem­bers and non-mem­bers, the fun day will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and fea­ture lots of fun ac­tiv­i­ties, stalls and re­fresh­ment stands. The Kick Fada will take place from 12.30 p.m. un­til 2 p.m.
