Emmets Notes 21st July 2014

posted 28 Jul 2014, 07:33 by Listowel Emmets

Sympathy: Listowel Emmets would like to extend their deepest sympathies to the Fitzgerald Family Church St Listowel on the recent death of Tom. Tom was an avid GAA man and was involved in all aspects of our club, and at the time of his death served as President of Coiste na nOg and as Vice President of Craobh Cumann Emmet. Not alone did Tom serve the Emmets club with great distinction he also was Secretary of the North Kerry Football Board for an astonishing 25 years, his efficiency and diligence endeared him to all. Tom also had a very decorated football career as a player and coach and it is safe to say that the majority of kids and footballers within North Kerry had Tom coaching them at one stage or other over the past 50yrs. Since his retirement Tom was involved in Cumann na mbunscoil competitions, and his last involvement with Listowel Emmets saw his charges win the County Minor League Division Two which included players Brian McGuire, Kieran O'Connor and Conor Cox, that year they also won out their district league and championship.
Tom also trained many Feale Rangers teams including the infamous double U-21 Champions of '97 and '98 included on this panel were the Kennelly brothers Noel and Tadhg, Eamonn Fitzmaurice, Paul Galvin, Brian Scanlan to name but a few. He also trained Shannon Rangers and Finuge teams during this time. Tom Fitzgerald leaves behind him a deep legacy of GAA involvement and participation, we send our deepest sympathies to Marie his wife, to his children Jerry, Judith, Paul and Anne-Marie, his many grandchildren and his extended family. Solas na bhFlaitheas ar a anam uasal.

Listowel Emmets would like to also extend their deepest sympathies to the family of the late Garda Michael Ryan, Ballygologue Pk.
