The B Final saw Darragh Lynch & Kaci Jo Nolan's Listowel Independents take on Ava Grimes & Sean Healy's Boro team in a closely fought final the Boro came out on top this time. The eagerly awaited A Final saw An Ghleann captained by Saibh O'Callaghan & Cillian Rodriquez and the Rural Rangers captained by Gearoid Stack and Cliona Pierse lived up to all expectations and a great game of football played out which was a joy to behold. The Rural Rangers were victorious with Aoife Horgan awarded the player of the tournament. A huge thank you to all who took part in the 9th running of the John B Keane League. This year saw our games referred by Kenneath Kelliher, Eimhin O'Brien, Darragh Leahy, Jake Moriarty and Davy Keane, all of whom had battled it out in the early years of the John B Keane League. A huge thank you also to Mary Keane and the Keane Family who kindly sponsor the League, we are very fortunate to have them as our supporters.

Emmets Ladies


The U8/10’s played Abbeydorney in Frank Sheehy Park on Saturday last, where a large crowd were entertained by some great displays by both sides. It is fantastic to see the great improvement in the skill levels and the sporting manner in which everyone approached the event.


The U12’s were away to Dingle on Tuesday last in the County League where they were unfortunate to lose on a scoreline of 1-10 to 1-04. Thank you to all parents that drove down to Dingle and for providing the sandwiches.The girls will next play Laune Rangers on Monday 11th June at 7pm in Frank Sheehy Park.


The U14’s had a rare loss when they travelled to Killarney last Tuesday to play Dr Crokes. Travelling with the bare minimum they were then very unfortunate to lose Cianna Guiney to injury in the third minute. Playing against a full Dr Crokes team the girls managed to play a dominant game of football. They were ahead for the majority of the game before losing on a scoreline of 3-5 to 1-7, with Dr Crokes scoring two goals in the latter part of the game.


continues to gain momentum. The group are travelling to the Munster Blitz on Saturday next in Mourneabbey, Co Cork. They will participate alongside 15 other clubs from Munster in a fun filled day of activity. Husbands, partners and kids all welcome on the day.

Training continues every Thursday from 8 to 9pm at St Michael’s College
