Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT - CUMANN NA MBUNSCOL

THURS­DAY last saw the first out­ing, for boys, this year. Bray Em­mets again hosted the fifth/sixth class boys’ par­tic­i­pa­tion blitz. 30 teams en­tered our blitz play­ing four games within the hour.

With a brisk southerly breeze blow­ing there were great dis­plays of team­work whilst play­ing against the wind as well as some very ac­cu­rate kick­ing over the bar with the wind.

Al­lianz Cumann na mBunscol would like to thank our ref­er­ees on the day as well as Dave, Michéal and Gar­rett for pre­par­ing the pitches for the teams.

The par­tic­i­pat­ing schools were: St. Peter’s Bray (2), St.Fe­gal’s Bray (2), Scoil Chu­lann (1), St. Cro­nan’s Bray (2), Kilmacanog­ue (2), New­town­moun­tkennedy (1), Kil­coole (1), Scoil na Coroine Mhuire Ash­ford (3), Nun’s Cross Ash­ford (1), St. Pa­trick’s Wick­low (1), St. Lau­rence O’Toole NS Round­wood (2), Moneystown NS (1), Gaelscoil na Clocha Liath (3), Grey­stones Ed­u­cate To­gether (3), St. Kevin’s Grey­stones (2), St. Lau­rence’s Grey­stones (2), St. Brid­get’s Grey­stones (1).

Up­com­ing Al­lianz Camo­gie League Day: The first Al­lianz Camo­gie League blitz of the year will take place on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 3, at 11.45, at the Bray Em­mets ground.

The fo­cus of the blitz is on par­tic­i­pa­tion and giv­ing as many girls as pos­si­ble a chance to play camo­gie, re­gard­less of ex­pe­ri­ence.

The games are nine-a-side, no age limit, goals only, no goal­keeper.

Please feel free to send more than one team but let us know when you re­ply the age group of the team so fix­tures can be set ac­cord­ingly; and also if the teams are made up of club play­ers or school-only play­ers so that this can be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion for fix­ture set­ting as well.

Please let Ciara Fa­gan, Camo­gie Of­fi­cer, know by Mon­day, Septem­ber 29, if you are at­tend­ing and how many teams you will bring, in­clud­ing the age range and ex­pe­ri­ence level of the teams.

There are girls from third to sixth in­ter­ested so hope­fully we can have a good age range.

Team men­tors may be called upon to ref­eree matches if needed on the day.

If you have any ques­tions, feel free to email Ciara or text her on 0834841387.
