Following on from the sending off of Jim Doyle in the Senior County Hurling Final last year Bray Emmets appealed the referee’s decision. Following a meeting last week of the County Disciplinary Committee the rescinded the referee’s decision to award the red card and exonerated Jim. We are delighted for Jim with that news as we felt all along that the card had been awarded incorrectly.
Emmet Bhré 4-18 Western Gaels 1-5.
The Junior hurlers met Western Gaels in their opening league game of the summer. Numbers were very healthy with a travelling squad of 25 players. Minor player, Conor McNally made some fine saves with Bray posting 3-8 by half-time. Luke O’Reilly played a Captain’s role in the second half, supported by the scoring abilities of Bill Moorehouse and David Ebbs. Particular mention to the full-back line, where Billy Brazil and Enda McHugh did well. Bhí an-áthas ar an mbainisteoir gur thaistil 25 imreoir ar an oíche.

Under 14 Hurling
The Under 14 hurlers competed in the Wicklow Féile final against Carnew on Wed 30th April in Pearse Park. This short, thirty minute match was an all-action, full-blooded affair. Carnew hit the ground running in every sense. As one Bray mentor remarked, their pursuit of breaking ball resembled greyhounds chasing a rabbit. Ciarán McKay and Donnchadh Griffin-Carroll worked hard to stem the tide, as did the speedy, courageous Andrew Conway. In the second-half, Cian Lohan created chances and Rory Lambe did his best amid very tight, tough marking. However, the 5 point gap could not be bridged. All hands were to the pump for the tense concluding minutes, but a relieved Carnew were the deserving winners on this occasion.
Good news did follow later that evening, when we heard that Wicklow were being allowed to enter 2 teams into this summer’s Féile. Tagann an ghrian i ndiaidh na fearthainne.

Under 14 Camogie
The U14 Camogie team had a successful friendly-fixture against Naomh Ólaf in Páirc Emmet Bhré, Mon 5 May. The game was beneficial for both sides, and especially for the Bray girls as a pre-Féile preparation. The team was back-boned by the skillful Rachel Rice, with Jane Butler and Olivia McGarry working hard around the middle. Very good scores came from Olivia Duffy and Doireann Ní Dhúnaí among others, while Leah Carroll and Shauna O’Kelly made significant contributions also.
