There will 2 draws made on this date. January and February's Draws will be drawn together on the night. The cost of the draw will be €5 per month which is less than the cost of a weekly Lottery Quickpick. The organising committee is currently selling tickets and we are encouraging people to sign up for a yearly ticket for €60 that will also include you in a special draw for 2 prizes of €100 each that will take place on the night of our first draw.
The annual prize fund will be €10,000 and there will be 8 guaranteed winners each month.
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. We would like to acknowledge your support in the past and hope you will be equally generous again in supporting our club.

The clubhouse of Frank Sheehy Park was a wash with colour on Wednesday night last with Emmets juvenile teams from U6s to U16s awarded for their commitment to the black and amber in 2012.

Jamie McVeigh was award the U11 player of the year while Sean Keane received the U12 player of the year.

Emmets U14s had a great year not alone with their club but also with Feale Rangers who were defeated in the final of the County Championship. At Club level, this team excelled at all levels competing in the County League Division 1, Féile Peil na nÓg competition and at both league and championship in North Kerry. The team were awarded for their dedication and hard work throughout the year, they dug deep and were unlucky not to come away with more silverware during the year. Tadhg presented the team with their North Kerry League medals with Sheldon Neill receiving the U13 Player of the Year and Niall Collins received the U14 Player of the year. Jack Wall and Stephen Kelly received the U15 and U16 Player of the year award respectively.

It was then to the Saturday Morning Club and to Patsy McCarthy co-ordiantor, he thanked everyone for their hard work throughout and in particular to the parents who drive kids to the games and participate and help out at all times when needed. The U10 player of the year was Mark Foley it was highlighted that Mark had a great year with Emmets and has taken to football like a duck to water, well done to Mark.

That concluded the 2012 Coiste na nÓg awards, Sean Moriarty thanked everyone for their contribution throughout the year and highlighted that our club would not be the club it is today without the contribution, honest effort and hard work that coaches, managers, parents and players put in during the year, he wished each and everyone a great season in the year ahead.
