2012 North Kerry Senior Football Championship Final & Replay:
Listowel Emmets GAA would like to thank everybody who helped the Club host the 2012 North Kerry Senior Football Championship Final and Replay. With over 3,000 patrons in attendance on both days a lot of organising had to be done. We would like to thank Martin Scanlon our grounds man who done an amazing job in having the pitch in pristine condition, The Gardaí who were very helpful with logistics and traffic, Dr. Noel Galvin for providing medical assistance, Radio Kerry and the Press for their very kind comments, St. Michaels College for the use of their facilities and Charlie Cantillon from the Topaz/Centra Service Station for wonderful food he provided.
The Club would also like to thank the many volunteers that gave so generously of their time. Volunteers who helped with stewarding, making tea and sandwiches and many other duties, Eircom for providing communications assistance, Tom Kelly Scaffolding and anybody else who helped out in any way. Both days were brilliant occasions that will live long in the memory.
2012 North Kerry U-21 Championship 1st Round:
Listowel Emmets 1-17 Beale/Ballylongford/Asdee 3-08
By virtue of a 3 point victory in a most enjoyable encounter Listowel Emmets playing at home qualified for a semi final tilt against another combination side of Moyvane/Tarbert/Clounmacon after a convincing win over a fancied Beale/Ballylongford/Asdee combination side who in fairness were always playing catch-up football against a much more focused, slicker and certainly much more determined Listowel Emmets side who were full value for their win. Inspired by some magnificent individual performances from Conor Cox, Brian Murphy, and Eddie Joe Walsh to mention a few they led by example and in fairness did the most damage to the combinations side aspirations of victory scoring 1-11 of their sides tally between them. The game was barely a minute old when Eddie Joe Walsh showed his skill kicking a difficult angled point that was quickly answered by a lovely combination side move and finished expertly to the net by Ian Mannix. However by the 8th minute it was the home side who hit the front again. Jake Moriarty did the spade work and Conor Cox with still plenty to do weaved his way past defenders and smashed a rocket to the back of the net. Further points from some lovely passages of football had Listowel Emmets well ahead coming up to the break and leading 1-09 to 1-02. However the visitors finished the half with a flourish and a David Culhane delivery was flicked to the net by Jermiah Tydings in the 29th minute followed by a point from the visitors best attacker Tom Joy left the half time score 1-10 to 2-04 in Listowel Emmets favour.
On resumption Beale/Bally/Asdee came out with all guns blazing with David Culhane, Tom Joy, Ian Mannix and Cormac Walsh to the fore and having most of the play for the opening 5 minutes but the wides were totting up from good scoreable positions. Finally in the 7th minute it was Tom Joy who collected a poor kick-out cut his way through and finished in style to the net to tie up the scores 1-10 to 3-04. Game on or so we thought but the home side had other ideas and after soaking up that early second half pressure they set about to get back on track and once again it was Conor Cox and Brian Murphy as they did in the opening half led the way and with Davy Keane from corner forward scoring excellent points held a commanding 6 point lead by the 24th minute. Late points from David Culhane, (45), and Tom Joy (2) finished the scoring and even though only 3pts was to separate the sides at the final whistle it was the home side who were fully deserving victors.
