We fully appreciate the financial challenges facing our community at present but by supporting a successful Emmets Club, with players at all levels and ability, it will give the same community enormous pleasure now and in the years to come.

Thank you to all our club members and guests who came to the Social on Saturday February 9th at the Listowel Arms Hotel.

Chairman Kevin O’Sullivan outlined the achievements of the club and he commended both players and mentors for their vital part in the club’s success. His address gave prominence to the many new faces and initiatives that have invigorated the club in 2012. Centra Listowel, McGuires Pharmacy, Abbey Moulds and Christy’s “The Well” were thanked for their continuing financial support which assists in the running of the club. Kerry Ladies Football PRO, Imelda Roche commended the Emmets Ladies team spirit and sense of community that exists within the club which was evident from the atmosphere on the night. Tom Walsh representing the men’s club recognized the dynamism that Emmets Ladies have brought to the football club. On the night medals were presented to Junior and Senior players for their success at North Kerry and County level. Three players were honoured on the night for their performances and dedication to the club in 2012. Rebecca Horgan received the Young Player of the Year. Sarah O’Brien current U16 senior panel member received the award for most promising player while Senior Player of the Year, as chosen by the players was Miriam O’Keffe.
