Em­mets girls share Divi­sion 5 crown

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT - Bray Em­mets

BRAY EM­METS un­der-14 camogie team has been awarded the Féile na nGael 2019 Divi­sion 5 Shield jointly with the team from Gre­nagh, County Cork.

The two teams were neck and neck through­out the fiercely ex­cit­ing fi­nal held on Sun­day af­ter­noon, June 9, run­ning to ex­tra-time, which was also a draw.

In April 2019, the un­der-14 Bray Em­mets camogie team qual­i­fied to rep­re­sent Wick­low in Féile na nGael, which is a ma­jor na­tional cel­e­bra­tion of camogie and hurl­ing founded in Thurles in 1971 – ini­tially for boys only, and held this year in coun­ties Cork and Kerry.

The young play­ers from Bray were hosted by fam­i­lies of the Blar­ney GAA un­der-14 team, who pro­vided in­cred­i­ble hos­pi­tal­ity and friend­ship as well as great en­cour­age­ment dur­ing the matches the Bray girls played.

Led by team cap­tain Emma Nes­bitt, Bray Em­mets played three of their matches in the Blar­ney home grounds, travelling to Newces­town GAA for the Sheild play­off against Ban­don, and on to Clough­dubh GAA for the semi-fi­nal against Na Brídeóige from County Mayo and the fi­nal against Gre­nagh.

A great week­end all round for Bray women and sport!
