Listowel Emmets Ladies

This week the North Kerry league kicked off with both adult teams in action away from home. Placed in division one Listowel B are always going to find this years’ competition tough. This proved to be the case on Saturday when Kerins O’Rahilly’s ran out convincing winners. On a positive note newcomers to the adult set up, Ciara Gallagher and Sarah O’Brien didn’t look out of place for their young years. On Sunday last, the A team travelled to Castlegregory and won comprehensively. Lead by captain Miriam O’Keeffe all forwards featured strongly on the score sheet. However the team will face a much tougher challenge next weekend when they open their county league campaign in Kilorgan against Laune Rangers.

Under 12’s & 14’s

Both teams are up and running and are training indoors for the first few weeks. All you need are runners, tracksuit and 2 Euros for rent of hall.

Under 12: Scoil Realta na Maidine ( Boys School ) Hall from 7 to 8pm on Wednesdays

Under 14: You will find us in St Senans from 6 to 7 pm on Wednesdays.

The underage Awards Night was held on Sunday, February 19 at the Listowel Emmets Clubhouse with a packed house there to recognise the achievements of the players and coaches of 2011. Special guest of the night was Senior Kerry player Breda Lane who presented medals to girls in all groups ages under 8 to under 16. Thank you to Dominic Scanlon for an excellent job as host on the night. Participatory medals were presented to the Under 8’s and Under 10’s. The Under 12’s were presented with County League Division 3 medals. The Under 14’s were victorious in the North Kerry Shield and the Under 15 ‘s in the county championship.

The performance of the Under 16 ‘s in the County League final in 2011 was one to remember for all and the girls received their medals on Sunday night, a first at this age group for the club.
