Fantastic day's football in Bray

Teams from all corners played

Boys' Football League

Day 1 - There was a fantastic day's football in Bray Emmets on Wednesday with teams in attendance from all corners of north Wicklow.

This was a nine-a-side league and games were fast paced and filled with skill. Teams got three games and will get two more next Wednesday March 13 at 11am in Bray Emmets.

This will decide the winners of each division. Games were played with great sportsmanship and all players and mentors are wished the best of luck next week.

Thanks to Bray Emmets for their facilities, to all the referees and particularly Garrett Doyle for his hard work which ensured all ran smoothly.

Indoor Football Blitz

A total of 11 schools took part in the recent West Wicklow Indoor Football Blitz that ran over three days in the west of the county. The blitz was run in St Kevin's Dunlavin and Hacketstown Hall for boys from third and fourth classes.

The emphasis of the blitz was full participation and to experience playing indoor GAA. There was some excellent football played over the three days and all kids had great fun. The schools that took part were Dunlavin N.S, Baltinglass N.S, Jonathan Swift N.S, Donard N.S, Stratford N.S, Grangecon N.S, Kilbride N.S, Hacketstown N.S, Knockananna N.S, Talbotstown N.S and Rathcoyle N.S.

Many thanks to all parents and teachers who attended on the day and to St Kevin's and Hacketstown N.S for the use of their halls.
