Bray Emmets prepare to crown Ireland’s Kick Fada champions
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
