Bray Emmets v Arklow Rocks (replay)
It was back to St Pat’s of Wicklow town, last Saturday 8th Oct 2016 for the replay against the Rocks and after a minute silence for Margaret Byrne the game got underway. Having rode our luck the first day, getting an equaliser with the last puck of the game, it was imperative that we brought our A game on this occasion. It was Arklow though that opened the scoring with two points on the board before Willie Keane and Tim Devine brought us level, Darragh Maloney having missed a free beforehand. Arklow again went in front with free and Paddy Lee levelled with a free also.
Michael Walsh had to retire with a shoulder injury and Shane Lohan came on to replace him. Lohan was only on the pitch when he fired over a lovely point and was looking very lively in the corner. It was TJ Byrne again that caught a long ball in and eventually rounded Enda McHugh for a well taken goal, the number of steps was very questionable. Back came Bray but try as they might just couldn’t get the ball in the Arklow net, Liam Kenny, Tim, Darragh Maloney and Michael Walsh before he went off, all missing good goal chances in this half, however it was a good half for us with intensity level well up on a fortnight ago, the score at half time 1.3 to 4 points for the Rocks. Sean Maloney took up marking TJ and Paul Barry moved up on Tiernan Mellon. The second half saw Bray push forward and really take the game to the Rocks, Willie Keane was powering his way through the Arklow defence and was rewarded with a well-deserved goal when he blasted the ball past the Arklow goalie. Liam Kenny was having one of those days that although he was catching everything inside he just couldn’t find the net with one of them. Arklow came back at us again and levelled, Paddy put us ahead again Darragh also fired over and slowly but surely we were grinding them down, Brian Duggan came on for Paddy and Ed Keating for Matt.
Tim Devine had now stepped up a gear and his two goals in the last quarter put pay to the Arklow challenge. Shane Lohan again popped up with a lovely run through the middle to fire over his second point and put seven between us. Arklow needed goals at this stage and Conor McNally who started his first intermediate championship match was in no mood to let anything pass, Jordan Lee was outstanding and Cathal Reddin back to normal, Karl Lacey ran himself into the ground as usual, so it is another county final and the double-double is still on, Kiltegan are waiting for us in the final, should be a cracker before the senior game next Sunday 16th at 1.15. The final score 3.7 to 1.7.
Team: Conor McNally, Paul Barry, Enda McHugh, Peter Conroy, Cathal Reddin, Sean Maloney, Jordan Lee, Karl Lacey, Matt Thomson, Paddy Lee (2), Willie Keane (1.1) Darragh Maloney(1), Tim Devine(2.1),Liam Kenny, Michael (brick) Walsh, Shane Lohan(2) Ed Keating, Brian Duggan and Craig Brack Sinnott....

Bray Emmets v Arklow Rocks
“Live to fight another day” is the best way to describe this one, Paddy Lee pointed a free with the last puck of the game, to keep our hopes alive in this year’s championship, so living on the edge is putting it mildly. While we started well enough in this game we couldn’t shake off the Arklow men, Paddy, Willie Keane, Liam Kenny and Brian Duggan all firing over points from play with at least of them being good goal chances, however it was TJ Byrne that fired the only goal of the first half for the rocks, and along with a few points, he was a constant thorn in the defence, Paddy Mellon fired over three 65’s which very much kept the Arklow men in contention, Darragh Maloney and Paddy pointed before half time, a 65 and a free to leave the score level 1.7 to 10 at the break.
The second was much the same, nip and tuck” and it was time for a few changes, Tim Devine and Liam Benville replaced Michael Walsh and Brian Duggan. We did manage to get our noses in front for a short while but a terrible mix up in our defence let Arklow in for another goal, we were now chasing the game and were guilty of some terrible bad shooting including from frees. Liam Kenny was getting fierce abuse at full forward and couldn’t get a free with several appeals being turned down, Ronan O’ Brien, Sean Maloney and Paul Barry were very busy and Arklow were awarded a free in front of our goal it was looking ominous, Matt Thomson and Conor Doherty came on for Cathal and Philip and Seanie moved out the field to try and get ball into our full forward line.
Willie Keane who was playing his heart out won possession and was fouled, Paddy pointed which left only a point in it going into injury time, it was now up to the referee as to what was to be added, and we needed to go in search of the equaliser, Karl Lacey who fought like a tiger won the ball gave it to Seanie who was pulled back, fouled free in, out on the wing, Paddy stepped up and pointed, this was our get out of jail card played, Manley blew the final whistle, 2.10 to 16 the final score. Replay next Sunday week in Aughrin before the senior game v St Pats.

Bray Emmets v Kilcoole
The Lacey Furlong cup has returned to the cabinet up in Emmet Park for another year, with a convincing win over Kilcoole last Tuesday night, we have retained our league crown. The last match of the intermediate league v Kilcoole, last year’s Junior A champions went ahead last night, and despite home advantage the boys from the Goosebank just couldn’t contain our lads who went about getting the win right from the start. Gearoid Murphy, who was outstanding on the night, fired over two points, one from a free and the other from play, and before we knew it, we were 1.6 to no score up, Gearoid also adding the goal. We were in complete control in this half, with Karl Lacey, Paul Barry, Jordan Lee, and Seanie Maloney rock solid at the back, Liam Kenny, Brick Walsh, and Gearoid too hot to handle up front. There is no shortage of talent in this squad and picking a team for the semi-final is sure to give Mick and Pat a headache, if everyone is available. Philip Collins, Tim Devine both played their first game at this level and did well, Matt Thomson who was celebrating his 21st birthday on the night also made a good impression. At half time we lead 3.10 to 3 points and it was time to give some of the subs a run out, Brian Duggan was replaced by Paddy Lee, and Matt made way for Tim Devine.
Kilcoole did make a game of it in the second half, Ronan & Eoin Keddy winning the battle at mid-field and Ciaran Doyle doing well at number 6, however goals from Liam and Tim left the result in no doubt, Fintan Donnelly did fire two goals past Peter O’Reilly but it just brought respectability to the score line that finished 5.12 to 2.13. Mick Hagan was very complementary towards Bray, recognising the fact that we were unbeaten in the league, and to Kilcoole for a very sporting game, presented the cup to Darragh Maloney for the second year running. A special word for Jackie Napier who was unable to attend the game and missed the photo but I am sure he will be back on his feet in no time. Many thanks to Peter Walsh who took charge of the warm up, Cameron who got the boys strapped up and Colm McDonagh who once again had everything ready for the boys before the game, to Hendo, Ciano and Shane for the water and most of all to all the supporters who follow our teams with such great pride.
Team: Peter O’Reilly, Paul Barry, Sean Maloney, Ned Keating, Jordan Lee, Peter Conroy, Karl Lacey, Philip Collins, Darragh Maloney(capt)(1), Neil Doherty, Matt Thomson, Gearoid Murphy(2.8), Brian Duggan, Liam Kenny(2.1), Brick Walsh(2), Paddy Lee, Tim Devine(1.), Enda McHugh, Barry Cowan and Conor McNally.Unable to play on the night were, Ronan O’Brien, Willie Keane, Ben McCormack, Shane Lohan, Cathal Reddin, Liam Benville and Cathal Magee.

Bray Emmets: 5-07 - Carnew: 3-11
On the road again to Arklow , and this time it was Carnew, with two wins and a draw we look good for a semi-final spot again this year. As defending champions every match gets harder as other teams raise their game and set themselves targets, and beating us would certainly give them a fair idea of where they are in relation to winning the intermediate championship. We faced Carnew in many battles and last night was no different, our boys were well up for it and immediately went about their business, Brian Duggan, Liam Kenny and Michael (Brick) Walsh, causing the Carnew full back line all sorts of problems and Darragh Maloney was doing his normal trouble shooting and dropping back to help out our defence, although Cathal Reddin and Ronan O’Brien appear to be getting better with age gave a great performance on the night. We welcomed back Matt Thomson who had been away farming until all hours of the night and boy did he make his presence felt, giving Michael Collins the Carnew centre back a right roasting. Peter O’Reilly was landing the puck outs down on Matt and he managed to handle most of them, particularly in the second half when the pressure came on. We lead 3.5 to 1.6 at half time, Carnew scoring a goal and a point just before the break, very much keeping them in the game. Goals from Brick Walsh(2) and Duggs, points from Maloney, Lacey, Keating and Kenny who was providing a lot of the donkey work, lead to a good spread of scorers which is always good and we certainly had that in the first half. The second half and Carnew with a slight breeze in their backs, we would appear to have it all to do, Sean Maloney and Paul Barry were solid and although scores were scarce in this half we held our own and it was up to Carnew to come at us and to gain the momentum, Jordan Lee is another man that deserves a mention being his usual hard working and disciplined self, Duggs added his second goal, Benville fired over, Brick Walsh added two more and the score board was ticking over nicely, back came Carnew who had different ideas, Joe Hughes who moved to full forward banged in two goals and it was game on, and right down to the wire. Up pops super sub Conor McNally in an unfamiliar position of corner forward to let fly with a perfect ground stroke to the back of the Carnew net and we are back to three up going into injury time, the pressure was intense but Ciaran Manley finally blew the final whistle, after Dan Nolan had reduced it to two and we held on for a courageous win, the final score 5.7 to 3.11, well done to all.

BUT after conceding 2 soft goals we showed we would not give in easy and with some fine points from enda ford, liam benville, daniel kennedy and conor o doherty we finished the game the strongest but was it not enough and carnew won 3;15 to 1;9 .....

|Intermediate Hurling Final|
17 October, 2015
Well it was all roads to Arklow on Saturday evening for intermediate hurling final against Arklow rocks. Could we emulate the seniors and bring home the Sean O'Farrell cup to Bray, making it a clean sweep of the top two hurling league and championships for 2015. Indeed we did just that, running out winners on a score line of 3.14 to 3.7. We started this game with a great point only seconds after the throw in from Liam Kenny, quickly followed by a free from Tom Cash, Paddy Mellon then added a point from a free for Arklow, Willie Keane, Barry Cunningham got off the mark with points from play, and were starting to run riot through the Arklow back line, Tom Cash was deadly on the frees and from play as we eased into a commanding lead of 8 points to 4, our backs were completely dominant and only for a few handy frees, it could have been a lot worse for Rocks who just couldn't make any head-way through the Bray half back line of Matt Thompson, Peter Conroy and Cathal Reddin, then just before half time Liam Kenny gathered the ball, ripped through the Arklow defence and blasted past Keith Barns in the Rocks goal, Lorcan Pratt finished the half with a lovely long range point to leave the half time score 1.9 to 5 and looking comfortable having played into the wind. We began the second half with a fine goal from Tom Cash, straight from the restart, before the Arklow mentors had even made it to the dug-out, Nikki Sweeney came on for Luke O'Reilly and before long it was 2.12 to 5 points, Shane Lohan came on for Ryan Tynan, however there was to be one last twist to this game and with ten minutes to go Ti Byrne Arklow's ace forward flicked the ball to the Bray net for a very good opportunist goal, this was quickly followed by another goal from the same player and the Rocks were ending with a great rally, meanwhile Seanie Maloney had to come off with a bad injury to his ankle and Matt. Thompson received a somewhat harsh red card. Ed Keating came on for Sean, Craig Brack Synnott for Peter Conroy, the game had suddenly become exciting, Dara Maloney "captain supreme" delivered a long puck out which Liam Kenny plucked for the air, handed it to Lorcan who handed it to Tom who blasted past Keith Barns yet again and this was surely game over but no! back came Arklow and that man again TJ Byrne caught another ball on the edge of the square and fired in another goal past Dara, Tom Cash added few points but it was too little too-late for Arklow, the final whistle blow and Bray were champions. Many thanks to all the supporters who travelled down, as we ended the year on a very good note, also many thanks to Brenda Maloney (nutritionist), Colm McDonagh (kit), Olan Savage (trainer), Cameron(Physio), Harry Stevenson(stats) Willie Cash(sel), Mick O'Byrne(sel), Jackie Napier (admin), all the hurley & water carriers, John and the senior management, our sponsors Matt Britton.

Bray Vs Glenealy
The intermediate hurlers have followed the seniors into another county final for the club. We travelled to Ballinakill last Tuesday to face Glenealy under lights in the semi- final of the intermediate hurling championship and what a match it was, tough, hard and noncompromising stuff, point for point and end to end. Tom Cash opened his account with a point from a free and this was quickly followed by a great point from Willie Keane.
John Keenan was kept busy for while at this stage and managed to keep order flashing a few yellow cards in the process, the Glenealy robust approach was not working and our lads matched them point for point, concentrating on the hurling and the ball, Darragh Maloney added a point and Tom again with two more, one from play and one from a free, while David Conyard and James Manley kept Glenealy in touch with some well taken scores from frees and play. Half time saw us level at 5 a piece and with us playing towards the clubhouse and a big Emmets support behind us, things looked good.
The whole of the senior team, who had a gym session up there before the match started to become vocal and encouraging the lads on. Shortly after the break a few changes were made, Willie Keane suffered a bad thumb injury, so Matt Thompson was introduced along with Luke O’Reilly and Nikki Sweeney, the game was still very even and no quarter given. Glenealy started to take a small grip on things and went ahead by a point but then came the purple patch from our lads lead by Enda McHugh who was immense at the back, midway through the second half Tom landed a monster from play, quickly followed by another from Nikki Sweeney, we then missed a few chances to pull away and drive on but back came Glenealy putting pressure on our goal time after time.
Cathal Reddin, Jordan Lee, and Luke O’Reilly cleared the world of ball in the last quarter and Mick Walsh even stopping one from going over the bar with Seanie Maloney getting her out of the danger zone, Liam Kenny with all his experience came out from full forward to get in a great hook and win possession flicking the ball to Ben McCormack who was fouled and Tom once again, for his tenth point of the game slotted her over the bar, Willie Keane had come back on at this stage after Cameron had worked a miracle on him, and was to be denied by the post with rocket of a shot in the dying minute, the ball was cleared out for a 65, which we failed to convert but Keenan sounded the final whisle after four minutes of injury time causing euphoria on the Bray touch line.
The result was a fair one, both teams gave there all, both teams had misses but overall we were the best team and deserved the win, final score 13 to 11. Many thanks for all the support , the history pages just might have another double written in this year.
Team: Michael Walsh, Sean Maloney, Enda McHugh, Jordan Lee, Barry Cunningham, Peter Conroy, Cathal Reddin, Lorcan Pratt, Ryan Tynan, Darragh Maloney(1), Willie Keane(1), Ben McCormack, Tom Cash(10) Liam Kenny and Brian Duggan, Matt Thompson, Nicholas Sweeney(1) Luke O’Reilly, Ed Keating, Shane Lohan, William Robinson....

Bray Emmets Vs Gleanealy
1-14 to 1-7
The intermediate hurlers came up against Glenealy, the current champions, in Arklow on a very wet Sunday evening last. Our lads had played well in the opening two games but this would be a much tougher test, and it certainly didn’t disappoint.
Glenealy started well with a point from Jack Kavanagh from a free, Tom Cash then pointed from a free and Nikki Sweeney put us ahead with a point from play, Kavanagh levelled again with another free to make it two points each. We were just getting on top when Glenealy got a somewhat fortuitous goal from a free that went all the way to the net from out the field. This was a blow but the reaction was just what you would want to see, Ben McCormack who stepped into the goal for the injured Michael Walsh picked the ball out and sent it right back up the field where Willie Keane caught and fired over the bar to narrow the gap from 40 yards, Tom added another to end the half, with the bare minimum between the teams 1.2 to 4 with us very much in control.
No changes for the second half as we faced the town end goal fully focussed on the job ahead. We completely dominated this half. Liam Kenny gave the full back Tony Doyle of Glenealy a torried time, forcing him to foul on several occasions and no doubt Tom Cash was smiling every time as he kept tapping them over, midway through the half the move and score of the day came, Dara Maloney played a lovely low ball into Kenny who gathered and popped it out ahead of” Duggs” who with a great first touch collected and blasted with the boot past Cormac Geraghty in the Glenealy goal, Brian “Duggs” Duggan then added a bomb from the side line to net him 1.1.
Tom Cash also landed two monster points from play to bring his total to 10 points on the day. Jordan Lee replaced Luke O’Reilly with ten minutes to go and did well, over all our backs were very good but were guilty of giving away some easy frees which kept Glenealy in touch, the full back line lead by Enda Mchugh never took the eye off the ball, with Seanie Maloney and Ryan Tynan putting in a fair shift.
Deep into the second half Ben made a great save which really sucked the life out of the opposition and while Peter Conroy was missed at number 6 through injury, Matt Thompson handled the task admirably.
At the final whistle we edged it 1.14 to 1.7 (all frees), next up is Carnew and then semi-final open draw where we could easily have Glenealy again.
Many thanks to all the lads for the help on the night, especially the night that was in it, Ciano for the warm up, Michael Walsh and the boys on the water, hurlies and towels, Harry on the stats, Chris and Barry for umpiring and all the backroom team, Mick O’B & Willie Cash.
Team: Ben McCormack, Seanie Maloney, Enda McHugh, Ryan Tynan, Cathal Reddin, Matt Thompson, Barry Cunningham, Lorcan Pratt, Dara Malmoney(capt), Nicholas Sweeney, Willie Keane, Luke O’Reilly, Tom Cash, Liam Kenny, Brian Duggan, Ned Keating, Jordan Lee, Ishmal Mnesa, Shane Lohan, Cathal Magee and William Robinson....

31 July, 2015
Last Friday the 31st of July we played our second match in intermediate hurling championship against Barndarrig in Newcastle. We had the bare bones of a team going down as Matt, Lorcan, Jordan, were away Bracker, Harry, and Paul Barry injured, none the less we had fifteen or sixteen good hurlers on board and were ready to do battle, unfortunately Barndarrig were also without players and didn’t have the strength in depth that we had. The match was over by half time and proved only to be a run out for our lads, the final score was 9.22 to 3 points, our full forward line “went to town”, Tom Cash 4.7, Liam Kenny 2.3 and Brian Duggan 2.4 with some really well worked scores, great passing movements between them, others to shine were, Captain Daragh Maloney(2) who is in great form those days, Ben McCormack(4) one of our shinning lights for the future , Ryan Tynan(1.1) Luke O’Reilly(1) and a half back line rock solid of Cathal Reddin, Peter Conroy and Barry Cunningham. There is one thing for sure it is going to take a good team to beat us and places will be at a premium, there are a number of these players knocking on the door for a place on the senior team and we will do well to hold on to a few of them. I would like to thank all the members of the senior team for going down, helping and supporting us, Peter Walsh for the warm up, Diarmuid and Paddy on the water, Harry on the stats, Jackie on the list, and then we have the support within the club great to see ye all there, not sure when the next match is but training is tonight Tuesday at seven.

Bray v Arklow Rocks
We kicked off the intermediate championship on Saturday evening in Dunbar Road Wicklow, against the Rocks.
We had two bad knocks at the start of this encounter, the first being Ben McCormack not fit to play thru injury and the second, two minutes into the game Paul Barry (Sparkey) being helped off with a bad knee injury, however he was replaced by Matt Thompson who went on to play a stormer. Liam Kenny lead the attack, with Tom Cash and Daragh Maloney having a big say on the result and contributing hugely to the game.
We led 7 points to 3 at the break and were it not for Keith Barnes making two great saves in the Arklow goal we would have been further ahead, Cathal Reddin was outstanding throughout with his vast experience orchestrating the whole back line, Lorcan Pratt who replaced Ben also went well, with Willie Keane causing all sorts of problems for the Rocks defence.
Michael Walsh looked as if he had played in goal all his life, keeping a clean sheet. So a good win and a great team performance running out easy winners in the end on a score line of 2.15 to 5 points.

The Junior hurlers played Kiltegan, on June 10th in Páirc Emmet Bhré. This was a clash against a side that has been topping the league, so Bray were up against it from the throw-in. However, the home side had not read the script. We got off to a great start. The full-back line lead by the experienced Enda McHugh performed very well, with Ed Keating and team captain, Enda Ó Maolmhuaidh superior in the halfback line.
In the second-half, John Ward, David Ebbs and Willie Robinson continued to provide vitals assists and grab hard-come scores. In the final 10 minutess, Bray took the game to Kiltegan and clawed back their advantage, earning a very satisfying draw on the last whistle.

Bray Emmets Vs Éire ÓgThe Junior hurlers had a really enjoyable, tightly fought encounter with Éire Óg, Wed 27 May. The game began with a minute’s silence for John Ward’s Mum who died recently. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.
The early exchanges involved the ever-improving Shane Anders, Colin Salmon doing the hard running and Danny Eglington in the busy half-back line. At the break, Bray trailed by 7 points.
The second-half saw an invigorated home side. Conor McNally kept a clean sheet and Daniel Kennedy’s work rate produced a fine point from a tricky angle. Paul O’Neill engaged tirelessly on his début, while Brian Duggan was a constant thorn in the opposition full-back line. However, despite the pitch of the battle, Éire Óg rightly celebrated their salty win. Bhain Uachtarán an chlub, Jackie Napier, an-taitneamh as an gcluiche.

Emmet Bhré 4-9, Carnew 0-9. The Junior hurlers travelled down to Carnew, Tuesday 8th July to face an uncompromising local team determined not to be beaten in their own backyard. The refereeing was lose and at times the players from both sides took the law into their own hands. Bray however, had more hurling in their arsenal and through Bill Moorehouse, Brian Duggan and goalkeeper Barry Cowan kept their mind on task.In the second-half, and throughout, defenders Michael Walsh and Cathal Reddin were impervious, with Jordan Lee and Paul Barry also giving very honest accounts of themselves. Finally, the game was capped as a contest when Shane Anders delivered Bray's fourth goal. He swiftly and skillfully lifted the sliotar, cooly dispatching to the roof of the 'Carn an Bhua' rigging.

Emmet Bhré 4-12, Glenealy 0-11. The Junior hurlers played Glenealy on Wed 11th June in Páirc Emmet Bhré. A beautiful evening for a game, this sporting encounter refereed by a Glenealy man, did not disappoint. Cathal Reddin and Seán Maloney were minding the house, but it was Ryan Tynan who was in Anthony Nash-form, thundering in two great penalties that put daylight between the two teams. Craig Brack-Sinnott and Colin Salmon worked hard in the engine room, along with strong tackling from David Ebbs. The main man upfront, stewarding and delivering a personal (1-3) was the influential Brian Duggan.

The Junior hurlers played Kilcoole, in their fourth league game on Wed 21st in Páirc Emmet Bhré. The early tempo was fast and furious. Kilcoole had come meaning business. Luke O'Reilly was quickest off the mark, followed by clever reading of the game from defenders Paul Barry and Billy Brazil. Robbie Mason's opportunist goal also helped settle home-team nerves.
However, the second-half offered little reassurance. This game was going in favour of the hungrier and more cohesive unit – Kilcoole. Bill Moorehouse's introduction provided much needed scores, but it was Tom Cash's accuracy and awareness that guided Bray to a share of the spoils. Barry Cowan and Enda McHugh also made significant contributions. Ar an líne, bhí ról tábhachtach á dhéanamh ag Pat Lee.

|Junior Hurlers through to Junior A semi-final|
15 July, 2013
The Junior Hurlers qualified for the Junior A semi-final after a strong league performance. With a mixture of youth and experience they faced Carnew at Arklow on Monday evening last. The game was competitive from the start. Bray dominated in the opening moments of the first half winning a lot of ball but did not convert all scoring chances. Carnew goaled at vital stages but Emmets never let up in the second half. Some hard work in the forwards from with Lennon and McCormack brought the gap back to three points however it was not enough and at the final whistle the gap of one goal remained.

Early on, Barndarrig were reduced to 14 men but not until the introduction of bright young minor Ishmael Mnensa did Bray take advantage of that. Cian O'Byrne and Owen Brazil got good scores but the visitors were still leading at the break.

|Cash points the way for Junior Hurlers|
22 May, 2013
The Junior Hurlers faced Enniskerry in Páirc Emmet Bhré on Wednesday night. The first-half was an unconvincing display by Bray and they were behind at the break to a more feisty opposition.However, John Anders wisely opted to use 19 players over the course of the contest and that paid definite dividends in the final 20 minutes. Bray were more energetic and chances were made and taken by the elusive Tom Cash and a determined Peter O'Reilly. Half-back Michael Walsh also got a defining score.

The Junior Hurlers began their season on Wednesday, 24th April with a tie against Arklow Rock Parnells. Some early good work and fine scores from Nicky Sweeney and Dara Maloney didn’t prevent Arklow from being deserving half-time leaders with Bray seeming to struggle to shake off the winter cobwebs. The second-half was a very different tale. Liam Kenny entered the fray and gave Bray more strength in the middle. Luke O’Reilly battled hard and Tom Cash got the vital breaks he needed to ripple the opposition’s net.

|Jubilant Junior hurlers|
3 November, 2012
The jubilant Junior hurlers competed in the final of the B
championship Saturday afternoon against Eire Óg Greystones. This
was a very tightly contested fixture and went right down to the
wire. The Bray defence marshalled by the peerless Billy Brazil and
Michael Walsh had to work overtime clearing their lines. Luckily,
an accurate Cian O'Byrne kept the scoreboard ticking with a
succession of well-taken frees. At half-time though,
Eire Óg led deservedly by one point.A re-focused
Emmet Bhré emerged in the second-half. Tom Cash scored the first
point from play for his side. The same player got an equally sweet
second, followed quickly by Ben McCormack. Bray Emmets had gained
invaluable momentum. In a goal-mouth scramble, Lorcan Pratt managed
to emphatically rattle the opposition netting. Despite a Greystones
response, Bray Emmets, lead by Tadhg Ó Broin and Craig Brack-Synott
had enough in the tank to see the game over the line by 1-10 to
This was a very special victory, savoured in particular by John
Ward, Brian Lambe and Decy Glynn, players who are 10 and 12 years
on the Junior hurling road. It was another special occasion for the

13 June, 2012
The junior hurlers made the long journey down to Kiltegan
Wednesday night. Bray were missing some key spinal players through
exams and injury yet gave a full-effort nevertheless. The early
running was done by Bray and those breaks in play landed a point
for Brian Lambe. The high point of the half was an excellent
groundstroke from the lively Cathal Ó Dúlacháin finding its way
into the Kiltegan netting.
At midfield, Ryan Tynan and in the half-back line Jordan
Lee and Billy Brazil stood out. In the second-half, young Shane
Anders showed his quality along with the ever-green John Ward and
his ' C'mon, encourage eachother' mantra. Kiltegan had the better
of the second-half, having the fitness and player pedigree on the

matters. From there, a fine Decy Glynn ground stroke and another
thunder bolt from Willy Nolan meant Bray finished the first half
very comfortably. Once again, Jordan Lee and Michael Walsh were

The Junior hurlers suffered the narrowest of one
point defeats Wednesday last. Despite second-half goals from Craig
Brack, John Ward and Dara Maloney, Bray Emmets could not clinch the

|Junior A hurling final V Kiltegan|
4 March, 2012
The Junior A hurling final (2011) took place Sunday last
against Kiltegan in Blessington. The weather conditions were
perfect but the turf proved hard work for both sides. Kiltegan were
first out of the blocks but staunch defence from Billy Brazil and
Peter O'Reilly in nets kept Bray in touch. Down the other end, a
persistent Cathal Ó Dúlacháin found the net while Luke O'Reilly
scored a fine long-range point. In the second-half, Daire Lohan's
work rate was outstanding as was his overall selfless contribution.
Lorcan Pratt and Enda Ó Maolmhuaidh emptied the tank in the final
15 minutes, while Adam Conway's point was a fine individual effort.
In summary, while this game was full-blooded, the Kiltegan fitness
and team cohesion made them worthy winners. Comhghairdeas leo go

19 February, 2012
The Junior Hurlers had a 5 point cushion in this 'Junior A'
championship semi-final against Avondale Sunday last. This was a
pulsating and hard-fought contest for the winning Bray side.
In the first half, Paddy Lee who was tightly marked throughout
managed to slip between the defenders for his trademark goal.
Captain Willy Nolan also sliced the posts from distance while
Michael Walsh at centre back kept a steady flow of ball
In the second half, trojan work was done by Daire Lohan, Billy
Brazil and the peerless Luke O'Reilly. O'Reilly also scored a vital

|Junior Hurlers first outing|
10 February, 2012
The Junior Hurlers played their first game of 2012 Friday
last, a friendly against Na Fianna, Glasnevin. The game was played
on a fresh night, conditions leading themselves to a beneficial and
sporting outing for all involved. Owen
Brazil and the energetic Luke O'Reilly were the outstanding
front-runners for Bray, giving a spine to the team and feeding the
forward division. Paddy Lee's sweetly taken goal was one of the
high points of the first half, while Dara Maloney in goal gave 100%
concentration to his duties. Beidh muid ag imirt sna cluichú

|Junior Hurlers V Carnew Emmets|
6 July, 2011
Emmet Bhre 3-10 Carnew Emmets 2-12.
The junior hurlers faced Carnew two weeks ago in
their second last group game. With some mixed results to date this
was a crunch game. The game was fought with great intensity at Old
Connaught. Emmets went in at half time up by a slim margin
with a goal from Emmet Fitzgerald nearing the end of the first
half. After the break Carnew came back fighting and netted
twice and lead at times. Goals from Nolan and then
Gearoid Ó Murchú brought Bray back into it while the backs
continued to fight. Keeper Daragh Maloney made a fine save to keep
Bray within a few points. Ó Murchú took a brace of points and
the game was level in the dying minutes with and equalising point
from young Luke Maloney. Another point from Ó Murchú in the dying
seconds gave Bray a well deserved win.

|Junior Hurlers V Western Gaels|
15 June, 2011
Emmet Bhré 1 - 6
Western Gaels 2 - 9
The junior hurlers travelled to Blessington last Wednesday to
play our west Wicklow opposition. In the first-half, Liam McGraynor
and Billy Brazil were kept busy and acquitted themselves with equal
fortitude. Daire Lohan is growing in experience and the talented
young player brought mobility to the Emmet Bhré midfield. In the
second-half, Peter O'Reilly and Luke Maloney showed keenly.
However, despite a Brian Lambe goal, the Western Gaels' half-back
line proved the difference between the two sides. Beidh an chéad

Junior Hurlers v Carnew Emmets: 3-10 to
Quarter Final of Junior A Hurling C'ship in Arklow 7th
We faced Carnew Emmets in the quarter final of junior
championship last Sunday morning at Pearse Park, Arklow. After a
one point victory over them recently in Bray this was going to be a
tough encounter in the knock out stages of the A championship. A
great first half performance from all fifteen men on the field and
goals from Luke Maloney and Gearoid O Murchu meant we went in at
half time with a lead of 2-6 to 0-5. Carnew came back
stronger in second half but with Dara Maloney on song with frees
and a second goal from O Muruchu we held onto our team and it
finished 3:10 to 1:7. A great performance from all. Keep an eye on
fixtures list over next two weeks for semi-final. Thanks for Pat
Lee for taking the reins with Kieran and Brian working on their
tans somewhere sunny.

TheJunior hurlers played their Greystones neighbours Wednesday
last. It was aclosely contested game from the word go, with the two
young teams competinghungrily for every break. Cillian Ó
Maolmhuaidh led the Bray defence supportedup front by the
hard-running Brian McConnell. Paddy O'Toole scored anopportunistic
goal giving the local team the half-time nod.
Teammanager Kieran Delaney made two substitutions in the
second-half, Daire Lohanand Brian Lambe, which he felt gave Bray
that extra bite that sustained them tothe final whistle.

Avondale 2 -
12 Emmet Bhré1 - 7
The junior hurlers went down to Parnell-country last Wednesday.
On a wet evening the maximum was done to make this encounter
competitive and even. Bray, guided by the strength of Craig Brack,
kept cool heads in the first-half with the narrowest of margin
favouring Avondale at the break. In the second-half, Enda Ó
Maolmhuaidh continued to set the tone, capping his outstanding
performance by one wonderful solo point. Luke O'Reilly also had an
excellent and tireless game at midfield, supported higher up the
field by a determined PJ Farrell. Bray's final score came from an
instinctive catch from Elliot Douglas who finding himself in
precious space duly dispatched the sliotar to the back of the

|Junior hurlers V Barndarrig |
18 May, 2011
Emmet Bhré 0 - 15
Barndarrig 2 - 6
The Junior hurlers were playing Barndarrig Wednesday last. A hard
fought win was punctuated with bright spells. Paddy Lee scored a
brace of fine points which sustained Bray Emmets until the end.
Willy Nolan too was a pivotal midfield cog throughout. In the
second-half, Barndarrig took the lead scoring 2 fine goals, putting
extra pressure on the ever-alert Billy Brazil and the very solid
debutant Goal-keeper Luke O'Reilly. Hard graft at midfield by
Elliot Douglas and Michael Walsh pulled Emmet Bhré through the
final 10 minutes.

|Junior Hurling V Arklow Rocks|
11 May, 2011
Emmet Bhré 1 - 16,
Arklow Rocks2 - 9,
The junior hurlers recorded their much-welcomed first win of
this campaign against an eager and capable Arklow side. Bray
fielded a young, yet strong 15 many of whom have hurled together
from an early age. Cathal Wogan steadied the ship in the opening
quarter with a very cleanly taken goal. Further points followed
from Willy Nolan and the pacy Nicky Sweeney in midfield. In the
second-half, defence was high priority. Goal-keeper Peter O'Reilly
and John Ward were rocklike in that regard. However, it was a
man-of-match performance ultimately from Dara Maloney, scoring from
the ground and open play that was the difference between these two
evenly balanced teams.

|Junior hurlers V Glenealy|
4 May, 2011
The Junior hurlers faced a young mobile Glenealy side Wednesday
last. From the throw-in, Bray players Paul Barry and Elliot Douglas
showed they had the ability to win ball and feed their forward
line. In goal, Dara Maloney was commanding throughout, saving
bravely and anticipating. In the second half, Harry Stephenson made
a strong impact while Pádraig Reynolds showed admirable feisty
qualities against the water-tight Glenealy back line. A special
word of thanks to Pat Lee for helping organise players.

|Junior Hurlers V Kiltegan|
27 April, 2011
The Junior Hurlers had their first competitive outing of the
year against Kiltegan Wednesday last. A hardy core of men embarked
on the 3 hour round-trip. While Bray were out-hurled by a stronger
Kiltegan, elements of the Bray play gave plenty of reasons for
optimism. The half-back line of Enda Ó Maolmhuaidh and Liam
McGraynor gave 100% to the cause. Equally, Tadhg Ó Broin and Paul
O'Connell skillfully cleared their lines time after time. Michael
Walsh got a number of fine scores from frees and Cathal Wogan
showed intelligently for many different moves throughout the

A Junior hurling selection played Ballyboden Sunday morning.
Weather conditions were excellent for a sporting and competitive
fixture against the aristocratic Firhouse Hurling club. Cillian Ó
Maolmhuaidh defended laudably while Eoin Mason got some top-drawer
scores. In the second half, Dara Maloney's strength and Paddy
O'Toole's tenacity made the difference. Sweet scores came from Enda
(0-1) and Cillian (1-0) Ó Maolmhuaidh, while John Ward distributed

16 February, 2011
A junior hurling selection played a challenge match, Wednesday
last, on the All-weather pitch against near neighbours Cuala.
Despite the rain, both teams enjoyed the run-out, Bray being
treated to the fluid, fast-moving skills of the young Dalkey side.
Gearóid Ó Murchú was competitive and unerringly accurate from dead
ball. In goal, Eoin Mason caught the eye of the opposition while
Emmet Fitzgerald and Ed Keating worked tirelessly to the end.

Enniskerry/Kilmac 2 - 11
0 - 11
The junior hurlers played their championship semi-final last
Tuesday in Eire Og. The game got off to a brisk start with the
spine of the Bray team, Tadhg O Broin and Danny Eglington having to
use experience and strength. Cillian O Maolmhuaidh showed well and
target-man Collie Browne got the early vital scores. At half-time,
the two sides were level. However, 10 minutes in to the second
half, the game was decided by 2 well-taken Enniskerry goals.
Despite shots on goal by Nicky Sweeney, the dye had been cast.
Enniskerry remained strong to the final whistle. The Junior players
would like to thank our manager, Kieran Delaney, for his generosity
and loyalty to the team this season. Tá súil againn go mbeidh sé

Bray Emmets 5- 13
This was the juniors second game in five days and the aim was to
kick on from a hard fought one point win away to Avondale last
This was definitely a game of two halves with Bray not
performing to their potential in the first half and they trailed 1
-2 to 3-4 at half time.
Following a tough team talk Bray came out determinedly in the
second half. The solid defence was complemented by the hunger and
hard work of the forwards resulting in Barndarrig not scoring in
the second half. Great scores from Aaron Murphy, Mick Byrne, Colm O
Keeffe and midfielder Collie Browne turned the match around while
captain Danny Eglington also contributed with a fine score. John
Ward and PJ Farrell scored the crucial goals.

Bray Emmets 1 - 7
Glenealy 2 - 17
This junior hurling championship match was competitive and sore
on the knuckles. A youthful and hungry Glenealy led from the
off. Full-back Dara Wade's return was a baptism of manic
defence. The full-back line and Goalkeeper, Mark Cowley worked like
ants. Up front, Mick Byrne provided scores which were hard come
by. In the second half, Bray settled, consolidated at
midfield and took the game to their Glenealy neighbours. A point
from new-man Peter O'Reilly plus a deserved penalty confidently
drilled home by Colie Browne saw out the evening.

15 June, 2009
This junior hurling fixture was a tightly contested
first-half duel, with the Enniskerry outfit doing the early
running, scoring from play and finding the net. Without the
industry of Billy Brazil and Danny Eglinton and the spirit of the
evergreen Mick Byrne, the game would have been well out of sight by
tea break. Enter Kieran Delaney, with the wisdom of the ages. The
effects were immediate. Bray played a far tidier second-half style,
limiting the impact of the influential Snowy and allowing the
talented Paddy Lee find the net 3 times. Pádraig Nolan, Tommy
Hamill and Declan Glynn also contributed important scores of their
own. The displays of young players, Harry Stephenson and Aaron
Murphy were equally worthy of mention. Manager Dan Phelan highly
complimented the graft of all 19 players, as did the gracious
Enniskerry Manager, Mick Priest Senior.

Bray Emmets 0 - 14 Vs Carnew 7 - 12
This Junior Hurling fixture would not have been fulfilled
without the obliging Christy Maloney taking the whistle at very
late notice. A fairly contested but robust encounter saw Bray
stretched to the limit by a Carnew team containing many players
with genuine Intermediate potential. The first half saw three fine
Mick Byrne points, complimented by another stylish score from Danny
Eglinton. The Carnew juggernaut, despite the full-blooded efforts
of Billy Brazil and Darragh Maloney never eased up.
The second half was again evenly contested in many parts of the
field. Diarmaid O Murchú made his presence felt in the half-back
line, and Pádraig Nolan stole back two fine points. Colie Browne,
despite an unsightly hand-injury and Jordan Lee worked tirelessly

Bray Emmets 3-5
Player-managerDan Phelan and experienced co-selector
Kieran Delaney were happy with the first outing of this new
campaign. A very wet, heavy evening made the going tough but the
industrious defence led by Billy Brazil and Danny Eglington worked
hard. As the half went on, the Bray midfield assisted by Tommy
Hammill came more into the fray. Good individual goals by Colm
O'Keefe and Hammond kept the Bray side competitive.
Visibility becameso poor in the 2ndhalf
that the Referee had to abandon the game 20 mins from time.
Unfinished business, but a useful outing for both teams.
Ona different note, the long-serving Junior players would
like to wish Goalkeeper and former manager, Mick Priest, the very
best with his latest endeavour with Enniskerry, and to thank him
for his outstanding service to our cause over the years. Our

Following an away defeat to Glenealy last week, Bray's junior
hurlers got their campaign back on track with a hard fought win
against ARP in Old Conna last Wednesday.
The first half saw the teams evenly matched as they traded
points with the pick of the Bray scores coming from Mick Byrne and
Brain McConnell. A well taken goal from Brain Lambe just before
half time sent Bray in with a two point lead. The second half saw a
great fight back from the rocks. Buoyed on by their backs Emmets
dug deep and responded with points from Colm Browne and Craig
Brack. With less than tens minutes to go Rocks were awarded a
penalty and when the ball was fired over the bar the game was
level. When experience was called for Mick Byrne supplied a sublime
pass for Dan Phelan to score and put Bray ahead.
Captain Colm Salmon rounded off a fine performance with a fine
point giving Emmet's a deserved two point win 1-9 to 0-10.

Emmets Junior hurlers had another fine win last recently in Old
Conna against Avondale. The excellent weather and pitch conditions
allowed a fine free flowing game. Emmets got off to a great start
with a goal from Declan Glynn in the first five minutes, followed
by points from Collie Browne and Brian McConnell. Avondale hit back
with two quick points but Emmets got stronger and a Jordan Lee goal
gave them a half time lead of 2-4 to 0-3.
A resurgent Avondale dominated the first fifteen mins of the 2nd
half scoring 1-2 leaving only two points between the team before
the Bray backs got a grip on the game with some great performances
by John Ward, Craig Brack and debutants Owen Brazil and Goalie Mark
From there, Bray stifled the youthful Avondale side and put the
game out of reach with well taken goals by sub Colm O Keeffe and
again from Glynn and points from Elliot Douglas and Mick Byrne,
resulting in a final score of 4-8 to 1-8 in Brays favour.
