Listowel Emmets Ladies
Following a short break the senior team have resumed training in preparation for the finals of the North Kerry League and County League and for the County Championship. The County League final against Southern Gaels is provisionally fixed for Sunday June 30th and the first round of the County Championship against Scartaglen / Duagh fixed for Sunday July 7th. No date fixed for North Kerry League Final.
The under 16’s played Southern Gaels in Fossa last Friday. It was a tough game for the Emmets with a lot of the team unavailable to play. A big thank you to the girls from the under 14’s who stepped up and played in order for the game to go ahead. Training continues on Wednesdays at 7.00pm in the cow’s lawn. Matches will resume at the end of June after the exams.
The  under 12’s captained by Sally O’Flynn  played Fossa in Frank Sheehy park on Friday evening. It was a brilliant game played in fantastic sunshine. Both teams were very evenly matched with play going up and down the field and it was score for score with Listowel ahead at half time by 1 point. The  excellent play continued in the 2nd half with great football being played by both teams. With 10 minutes to go Fossa found that extra surge and went away with the win. The girls are away to Cromare next weekend in round 3 of the County League. 
It was a very excited group of under 10 girls who left Listowel on Saturday morning to make the trip to Killarney to play Legion. A thrilling experience for these young girls to participate in competitive matches. Thank you to all the coaches and parents for providing support, transport and refreshments. Training continues every week at the Saturday Morning Club in Frank Sheehy park from 10.30 am to 12.00 pm.  All girls under 8/10 are invited to come along and new players are always welcome. Meanwhile the Junior John B. Keane League continues on Mondays at 6.45pm.
