Boys Football Back With a Bang!
This along awaited day finally arrived and like young calves being let out into the field for the first time our 5th and 6th boys took to the playing field of Emmet Park, Bray for their first Allianz Cumann na mBunscol outing in over 2 years.Such was the excitement of the children the bus trip to the Participation Day had a school tour like feel to it.
The North East section had 12 participating schools with 21 teams in all. Divided into 5 round robin groups each team played a minimum of 3 games. As ever, there were some excellent displays of skill and teamwork as well as the odd glimpse of individual brilliance.
The day couldn’t have run so smoothly without the help of Dave Barry and Willie Braine of Bray Emmets and the Young Whistlers from Coláiste Ráithín and Pres Bray who contributed hugely to the smooth running of the blitz.
Here’s hoping for another great day on Day 2, next Thursday5th May, where it’s hoped up to 30 teams will partake in the Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Participation Day.
