The club Management has initiated the development of a 3-5 year plans for Hurling, Football and
Ladies Football. This work is ongoing. One of the early outcomes from this process is the need to
widen the coaching and management skills within the club. It has accordingly been decided that
wherever possible the managers of the adult teams will be selected from within the club. While this
may not always be possible, we are in the position where well-qualified internal club members have
agreed to take on the management of the Senior Hurling and Senior Football teams.
The new manager of the Football team is John Walsh, while John Henderson takes over the Hurling.
Last year’s senior football manager, Jack Sheedy, has taken up the post of Manager of the Longford
Senior Football team. We thank Jack for his efforts during the year and wish him well in his new post.
We were delighted to have had Shane OBrien, as coach to the senior hurling team in 2012 and
manager this year. The club would like to thank Shane and his very professional management team
for the wonderful work that they carried out. The team made major progress under his direction
and brought great joy to all club members in bringing Bray Emmets to the County Final for the
first time in 61 years. In a tightly fought match, Glenealy came through in the end by 3 points thus
demonstrating the progress made by Bray in the past few years. We sincerely wish Shane the very
best of luck in the future.
