Please note that our Jackpot now stands at a Whopping €10,600.  Now is the time if you are not already signed up to register.  Not only are you helping your club but you are in with the chance of a great win.  There was no Match 4 winner of the Club Lotto on Friday, 14th November  when the numbers drawn were 13, 15, 23 and 26. It is €2 per week but goes a long way towards running all the facilities that we have. Sean O’Neill gets the lucky dip. Further details are available at

Grúpa 1.  Rachel Ní Chuilinn, Sadhb Ní Bhroin, Matthew Booth, Patrick Haugh, Sadhb Dodd.

Grúpa 2.  David Nesbitt, Brian Nesbitt, Eoin Mac Siomóin, Eoin Mac Thomáis, Oisín Drury.

Grúpa 3. Elena Ní Chéidigh Hayes, Emma Doyle, Rian Mac Maoláin, Róisín Ní Mhurchú.

Brian Nesbitt, an U12 Hurler and Footballer entered the singing category.  Group 2 involving David Nesbitt, Brian Nesbitt, Eoin Mac Siomóin, Eoin Mac Thomáis, Oisín Drury were very successful. Those 5 dedicated musicians now go on to the semi-finals in December in Parnells GAA club, Dublin. 

Despite the rain, a very enjoyable night was had by all involved with the inviting refreshments proving to be just the tonic. The parents were very appreciative of the organisers and the generosity of their work on the night.
B’fhéidir go bhfuil sé in am dúinne a leithéid de chomórtas a eagrú in Emmet Bhré.   
Seisiún Ceoil  : 
On Sunday, 23rd November, Bray Comhaltas organised a very successful Music session for their young members upstairs in the Bray Emmets clubhouse. There were over 50 people in attendance, 30 young musicians along with another 20 family members in support. The music was lead by Rachel Cullen and Sadhbh Byrne between 3.00 and 5pm.
The organising parents were delighted with the success of the occasion and very appreciative of Bray Emmets and in particular, Ger Conroy who obliged in locking up.  Beidh neart ócáidí eile againn amach anseo le cúnamh Dé. 
Ciorcal Cainte/Irish Club
Má tá suim agat teacht le chéile le Gaeilgeoirí eile sa chlub agus tá neart againn ann. Táimid ag iarraidh grúpa beag sóisialta a chur le chéile, oíche éigin in Emmet Bhré, agus beidh seans againn cúpla focal a labhairt agus taitneamh a bhaint as cupán tae Barry’s !! 

We are hoping to put together a group of Irish Speakers in the club. This would be organised on a very informal basis.
We will meet for an hour in the clubhouse, on a night suitable for the majority, and while enjoying a cup of tea / biscuits have a chat. In order for us to get an idea of interested numbers – and pick the best night – can you please e-mail or text me your interest. Go raibh míle maith agaibh agus beimid ag labhairt le chéile go luath.
