Bray Emmets appoint new senior hurling manager

Bray Emmets Club House

Paul Carley has been named the new manager of Bray Emmets senior hurling team.

The former Wexford star was in charge of Dublin side Ballyboden St Enda’s for two years before leading Wexford outfit Ballygarret more recently.

Carley will be hoping to take Emmets to another county hurling title after they were beaten by Glenealy 2-12 to 0-11 in last year’s senior  final, having won the three previous senior titles in a row between 2014 and 2016.

Tipperary’s Tommy Carroll had been in charge of Emmets last year, but he stood down and is being replaced by Carley.

Speaking to WicklowNews following the appointment, Bray Emmets chairman Liam McGraynor said: “We’re very happy to have someone with his experience at the club. […] We’ll be hoping to compete for championships again.”

Carley’s father Willie is a former manager of the Wicklow senior hurlers, while his brother Shane was part of the Wexford squad that won the All-Ireland senior hurling title in 1996.
