County Senior Hurling Championship
Bray Emmets continue their 2013 Coogan Steel Tinahely Senior Hurling Championship campaign this weekend when they face Avondale in Arklow at 1.30 p.m. on Sunday, 16th June. After last Saturday’s superb result against Arklow Rock Parnells, hopes are high of securing a second win in the competition. The players greatly appreciate the followers who made the trip to Aughrim last weekend so we ask all members to show their support for the players again on Sunday.

Wicklow V Meath
The Wicklow County Senior Footballers take on Meath in the Leinster Championship at 7.30 p.m. on Saturday, 15th June in Aughrim. All in Bray Emmets wish our Club mate Luke Benson and the rest of the Wicklow squad the best in what promises to be a fascinating battle to see who will face Wexford in the semi-final at Croke Park later in the month.

Well done to our U-13 players, Ciarán McKay and Cian Lohan on their recent successes in the Wicklow Races. Ciarán won the gold medal in the Kick Fada competition while Cian won a silver medal in the Poc Fada, much to the delight of their school friends and teachers in Scoil Chualann.

U13 hurlers take league leaders

The U-13 hurlers faced unbeaten league leaders Sylvesters in Páirc Emmet Bhré on Saturday, 1st June. This was a game that was drumming up some excitement as The Evening Herald were also in attendance. The first-half started with a flurry of good scores. Ben Kearney and Sid Hunt did a lot of hard work which resulted in scores for David Maloney and Cian Lohan among others. The Malahide men led at the break but Bray Emmets were kick started into top gear in the second period with towering performances from Ciarán McKay and Ronan McMahon in particular.  The sequence began with an opportune goal from Rory Lambe, quickly followed by goals from Macdara Ó Midheach and the sharp-shooting Joe Phelan. Other modest players very worthy of mention were Donnchadh Griffin-Carroll and Fiachra Bond. This victory was testament to the graft of the U-13 unit, with a minimum of individuals standing out.
