St. Patrick’s Day Parade Award Winners
Another great win for the Club! Once again Bray Emmets have been voted Best Sports Club represented in the 2013 Bray St. Patricks Day Parade. A big thank you to all involved, both parents and children, for turning out in great numbers on what was a miserable day weather-wise. Congratulations to Gary Prunty and all who assisted in organising the representation of our Club. It is great to see our players display their skills to a wider audience and even better to have your efforts recognised. Until next year when hopefully, we do it again, thank you all!

County Footballers
Knowing that an unlikely set of results was required to maintain their Allianz Football League Division Three status, Wicklow travelled to Sligo’s Markievicz Park on Sunday, 7th April more in hope than in expectation. The home side were also involved in the relegation scrap and as expected, the game was a tight affair with never more than a few points between the sides. In the end, the Garden County, for whom Luke Benson was introduced as a substitute, came up short and lost by four points: Sligo 1-12 Wicklow 0-11. So Harry Murphy’s men return to Division 4 but can look back on a campaign that was blighted by injuries to key players. The championship is only a few weeks away so now, for the management and players, it’s time to get down to the serious stuff!
