Kilmacanogue – Carnew Emmets Match Prediction | 28-09-2019 09:00

The annual GAA convention took place in Aughrim tonight (Monday 10th) with a look back on the year gone by and forward to 2019. With the main duties of roles within the county board up for renewal and change. The major change is Bridget Kenny taking up the reigns as PRO succeeding Kieron Kenny. The seat at the top table remains unchanged with Annacurras Martin Fitzgerald seeing a second year of his term unopposed.

However the home side could not shake off a resilient Kilmac side with the O'Callaghan brothers and Simon Doyle to the fore. Eire Og were on the rocks now, Kilmac added a brace of points before in the latter moments, they won a 14m free. Josh O'Callaghan fired over a point. Simon Doyle again, finished to the net in a flash, but the free was called back, as you can't take a quick 14m free. Sub Willie O'Hagan should have fired home Greystones 4th major, but was bundled down in the box, Advantage was played, Cranley and Woods were in like a light and Danny Woods is credited with putting the ball over the goal line. Eire Og's, Gavan O'Shea fired home a rasper of a goal, as they upped the ante in the 50th minute. Eire Og were coming out the field in possession, however they played a back pass to their goalie from nearly 50m out the field, the alert Simon Doyle read the back pass and tore through and intercepted the ball and rounded the keeper to fire home a major, to give Kilmac a lifeline. Each side traded a number of scores as the game ebbed and flowed up and down the park. However Kilmac were far from done.

Despite, the blow for the visitors, Bray continued their attacking football and rattled off 6 further points to close out the opening half which were equally shared between McGraynor and Kelly. As the half time whistle blew, it was hard to see how Kilmac were going to deal with the Bray threat in the second half with the score line reading 1-3 to 0-11. Another Kelly free and a fine score from McGraynor appeared to push the momentum in the direction of the Bray side who were beginning to attack in waves from their half back line. Kilmac were fighting for possession and attacks in this little period and on the quarter hour mark, Michael Whelans low shot across goal could only be helped into the net by a Bray boot. Anyone in the area of Sugarloaf must have heard Trooper bellowing in the northerly breeze on Sunday with the Bray Emmets number 5 covering so much ground in the opening half, his absence in the second half was a blow for Bray. A pulsating opening ten minutes seen both sides trade scores with Des Kelly (2) and Masterson chipping in for Bray while Aaron Creavin (2) and Michael Whelan firing over for Kilmacanogue.

Wicklow GAA

Along with it being the first North Wicklow derby between these sides in a number of years, it also was a derby of huge proportions in the Masterson house. Micheal lined out corner back for Kilmacanogue while Diarmid lined out corner forward for Bray. The old saying a game of two halves was very much evident in Kilmacanogue on Sunday morning. An opening 30 minutes of attacking football from the away side was impressive on the eye. Would they be marking each other in this battle? The lead up to the game was a unique one. The answer was no but they did happen upon each other a little over the course of battle. The scores from Bray were mainly due to the prowess of Des Kelly and Niall McGraynor from frees while Kilmacanogue who faced into a breeze in the opening half would rely on the lethal Aaron Creavin.
