Féile Peil na nÓg 2014
Listowel Emmets Coiste-na nÓg respect the right of the County Coiste-na-nOg CCC to issue a fixture but not the circumstances which led to, and the manner in which the CCC fixed a play-off of 5mins a half between Emmets U-14s and Austin Stacks U-14s on Saturday last 19th April. We reported in our notes last week,in good faith,that we had been deemed qualified for the knock-out stages of the Feile Peil na nOg and thus qualified for a regional final in the Feile at the least but that changed during the week.The matter is in hand but we were unable to sort it prior to last Saturday.Our U-14s put in a spirited performance in John Mitchels GAA grounds against Austin Stacks and the clock ran out for them as they lost 1-02 to 0-03. As the players and mentors left the field of play, it was to the unscripted,spontaneous applause from their many supporters, in what must be said was a special moment.The officers of our club are very proud of these players and mentors and thank them for their resilience,spirit and pride in an extremely difficult time.We will do our best to right the wrong imposed on these players and in the meantime urge ye all to keep training and playing with the same determination and skill shown in abundance thus far.Well done all.
Group Stage: Listowel Emmets went to Caherslee pitch on Saturday for the group stages of the Féile.
Our first game was against Cordal/Scartaglin where we had a great start to the day with a 5- 4 to 3 points victory. Our next opponents were Laune Rangers who had already beaten the favourites for the competition, Austin Stacks. Playing against a strong wind in the first half we were only 3 points down at half time. But as we did not take our chances in the second half we narrowly lost out 1-6 to 3-2 in a great game.
Now it was down to the last game against Austin Stacks. Knowing we had a better score difference we knew a draw would do us to see us through. It was a close game from start to finish and with only minutes left in the clock we equalized with a goal. We had chances to win it but settled for the draw to see us through to next Saturday’s semi féile finals.
All roads will lead back to Tralee next Saturday to see if we can we go one step further and win the Kerry Féile for the first time.
