- Sponsored by McMunns Bar & Restaurant Ballybunion -
Listowel Emmets 1-15 Knockngashel 0-12
Played in ideal conditions for this time of year in Duagh, this was an entertaining fixture pitting division 5 underdogs Knocknagashel against newly promoted division one outfit Listowel Emmets in this Senior North Kerry Champioship Quarter Final.
While Knocknagashel put up a good battle, Emmets always looked in control of the game with Conor Cox dominating in the forward line with 10 points, 5 coming from play.
Knocknagashel worryingly broke through the Emmets rear guard a number of times in the first half and kicked a number of impressive scores from centre forward and midfield but Emmets responded well with Conor Cox landing a couple of big scores off either foot.
Billy Doyle, Bryan Murphy and Aengus Fitzgerald all chipped in with well taken points in the 12th, 20th and 31st minutes respectively.
Emmets went in at half-time leading 0-10 to 0-07.
The second half saw a slightly more broken period of play with a number of short stoppages. Listowel maintained their lead with Cox again finding his range on the 44th minute.
The only goal of the game came at the 47th minute from the boot of Cormac Mulvihill and Noel Kennelly landed a massive point with his right in the 66th minute to all but finish the tie as a contest.
Emmets introduced Darragh Keane, Jake Moriarty and David Leahy in the second half to make their Senior North Kerry Championship debuts.
Listowel Emmets Scorers: C. Cox 0-10 (5f), C. Mulvihill 1-00, N. Kennelly 0-02 (0-01f), B. Doyle 0-01, A. Fitzgerald 0-01.

Well done to Saoirse Kennedy who represented Listowel Emmets in the Solo Singing Category last Friday night at the the North Kerry Semi Final in Knocknagashel.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be for Saoirse on the night even though she sang brilliantly. The standard in the solo singing was extremely high which is a testament to how strong traditional singing is in the county amongst our young people.

The Table Quiz is now a separate competition to be run under the Scór Banner. The Quiz will take place next Saturday night 30th November in the Intermediate School Killorglin at 8.00 P.M.  Best of luck to the Emmets Quiz team made up of Daniel Sheehan, Shawn Carey, Eddie Brown and Jack O Donovan and their mentor Mary Catherine Sheehan.
The winners on the night will go straight through to the All Ireland Final.
Listowel Emmets Monthly Draw:
The next draw will take place on Wednesday 27th November at the Clubhouse in Frank Sheehy Park.
Progressive 41 Card Drive: continues every Wednesday night in the Clubhouse at 9.00 P.M.
