Passing of Peter Keogh

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of  Wicklow GAA president Peter Keogh.

Funeral arrangements.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam

Peter KeoghPeter Keogh was Wicklow GAA.

For decades his was the voice and the pen that lovingly kept the county on the front foot as he attended matches of all shades so that people could read about their parish, their club and their county footballers.

He had the amazing talent of being an officer of the GAA and yet carried a critical eye so that he could champion improvement in the games by using his columns in the Wicklow People. And he managed to do so without causing offence to any side.

That was the great gift of Peter Keogh. Similar to our own late, lamented Tom Walsh, he was a person who was only ever chasing the good story of life – and not contemplating the meaner interpretations of what is dealt us.

Peter was an outstanding friend of every GAA club in the county – and a special light shone in his heart for Bray Emmets.

He was forever giving great support to our annual All Ireland Kick Fada – a competition he took tremendous pride in as it was the only All Ireland that took place on Wicklow soil. It was therefore our great pleasure to ask him to become the inaugural Grand Marshall of the Kick Fada, something to which he readily acceded.

The Term legend is applied much too liberally when describing GAA people – but it is hardly adequate in telling the story of Peter Keogh.

A small man in stature, he was a giant among several generations. He appeared as a Methuselah figure as he worked harder and harder, covering divisional juvenile game and All Irelands as his brief enlarged into his sixties, his seventies and his eighties.

As happens, the great GAA official in the sky beckons at some time or other and on Sunday Peter was called to higher office. We let him go as part of our community with deep regret but happy in the knowledge that Wicklow will have someone fighting for it at the cabinet table beyond the pearly gates.

Match reports

U14 Camogie

Emmet Bhré  3-3, St Kevins  2-2.


The U14 Dublin Camogie league kicked off Saturday 27th February with a close game against St Kevin’s Crumlin. Bray Emmets began brightly with Sarah Lambe scoring a goal, following on from the industry of Rachel Messitt, Emma Doyle and Neasa Ryder in particular. Despite their dominant possession, St Kevins could not seem to unlock the harrying, tenacious Bray defence. Róisín Murphy, Sinéad Quigley and Laura McGarry gave a 100% for the full hour.

   However, it was in the final 10 minutes that Bray put their noses convincingly in front. Jordan O’Brien was the stand-out player, helped in no small measure by Amy Butler, Róisín Benville and Úna Smierciak.  Bhí na cailíní agus na tuismitheoirí an-sásta leis an toradh deireanach.
