Bray’s Shield joy
Emmets girls share Division 5 crown
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!
