2013 North Kerry Minor Football Championship Final
Listowel Emmets 3-09 Ballydonoghue 2-06
Emmets and Ballydonoghue played out a very entertaining North Kerry Minor Championship final in good underfoot conditions in O'Sullivan Park, Finuge on Saturday last, despite the inclement weather. The weather certainly put the crowds off from attending but those that braved the elements were treated to a great game of football with both teams a credit to their clubs in how they played. Great credit is due to the Finuge club for having their pitch in great condition for the match also. It was the Listowel side that got off to the better playing against the wind where David Keane converted to open the scoring this was quickly followed by another converted free. The young Bryan Sweeney playing at centre field got a fine fetch and found the waiting Michéal Stack who turned well and sent the ball low to the back of the Ballydonoghue net and with eleven minutes gone in the clock Emmets led by 1-02 to 0-01. Ballydonoghue however, responded brilliantly with an excellently executed goal to leave the bare minimum between the sides, it looked like Ballydonoghue would get the upper hand as they went one in front again the marks man of the day Micháal Stack linked well with David Keane to send his second of the day to back of the Ballydonogue net leaving the half time score Emmets 2-03 Ballydonoghue 1-05
Emmets started the Second half as they did the first with a fine point from play aided by the breeze from David Keane. Ballydonoghue found their feet at midfield and began to dominate but were unable to convert from their possession, David Keane again for the Listowel side converted a free from a foul on Micheal Stack. Ballydonoghue built from the back finding Jack Foley again who passed on to Paudie Lyons who inched past Paul Kennedy to leave the sides 2-05 to 2-06 in favour of Emmets.
It was Emmets David Keane again to the fore as he sent over two unanswered points one a converted free. As Emmets intercepted a Ballydonoghue Kick out David Keane shot for point again the ball hit the upright to the waiting Bryan Sweeney who shot low to the back of the Ballydonoghue net as Emmets led with 3 minutes to go by 3-08 to 2-06. From the kick out John Keane linked well with Jake Moriarty to sending over another point to leave the full time score Emmets 3-09 Ballydonoghue 2-06. As stated previously this was a great game to watch and highly entertaining. These two teams had met in the North Kerry Minor League final where Ballydonoghue thought them a lot of lessons in football and its great to see that the Emmets boys learned from that and put on such a magnificent display. Mike Flavin Secretary of the North Kerry Board presented the Jotty Holly Memorial Shield to an elated Listowel Emmets Darragh Leahy.

2013 New York Senior Football Championship:
Congratulations to former Listowel Emmets player Kieran O’Connor who played a major role in helping Kerry win the 2013 New York Senior Football Championship. They beat Leitrim in the Final 0-14 to 1-07 to win the title for the 26th time. Kerry went into the game as rank outsiders as Leitrim were going for their 4th title in a row. Kieran who is a former Kerry Minor and U-21 played a brilliant game at full back. He was tough to get past all through out the game and he won the ball on numerous occasions to turn defence into attack. When Kieran left for America he was a major loss to Listowel Emmets but it’s great to see him doing so well and we wish him all the best for the future.
