The Annual ICA Wexford Federation 'Special Occasion' competition, sponsored by Wexford Creamery, was hosted by Bree ICA guild on the 7th June in the Community centre. Twenty guilds competed for individual category awards and the overall winner's trophy. The theme of this year's event was "Recycling". This involved competitions in baking, flower arranging, photography, sewing and crafts.
The competition attracted local and regional interest and the Bree guild catered for a full capacity crowd. While the judging was taking place, entertainment was provided by the pupils of Colaiste Brid, Enniscorthy and some local entertainers. The judges reported great difficulty in reaching a final decision due to high standards of work in each category.
Winners on the night included Maudlins Bree, Oylegate, Davidstown for individual awards. The overall winner of the "Gorey Trophy" was Oylegate, with Adamstown guild a very close second, followed by Bree guild.
