 Fixtures & Results:

Emmets Sat Morning Club:

a great few days of excitement were had at Frank Sheehy park over last weekend, where we hosted Duagh U8's on Saturday morning last where we played a number of friendly games and on Sunday we hosted the 7th annual Jim Corridan Tournament. This year we had 8 teams taking part with 3 from Listowel Emmets, One of which was Emmets U10's Ladies team which took part in the tournament for the first time. Legion of Killarney and Canovee of Cork also travelled as well as Ballyduff, St. Senan's and Ballydonoghue. All 8 teams enjoyed some fiercely fought battles in the opening rounds to see Canovee and Legion take part in the A final, Ballydonoghue and St. Senan's in the B Final with Ballyduff and Emmets U9s in the C Final while Emmets U10's met with Emmets Girls U10's in the D Final. Well done to Canovee who out the tournament while Ballydonoghue, Ballyduff and Emmets U10's were also victories in their sections. A huge thank you must go to our referees Sean Moriarty, Niall Browne, Mark Loughnane and Liam Walsh it is without doubt the toughest job on the day and we thank you for your hard work. The Jim Corridan Tournament is kindly sponsored by Senator Ned O'Sullivan we are indebted to him for his support and we look forward to many more years of friendship and support. Finally a huge thank you to Patsy McCarthy for organising the Tournament which despite the odd heavy shower was a tremendous success.

This Saturday morning sees Frank Sheehy Park hosting the Jim Corridan Junior Tournament for U8's and U7's throw in is at 10am. Training will continue for Emmets U9's and U10's at the usual time from 10.30am - 12 noon.

Emmets Ladies U16's:

Listowel Emmet’s captured the Kellihers Toyota Tralee U16 Division 1 County title in a wonderful game of football defeating Chorca Duibhne at Ballymac on Monday night last in which Savanah McCarthy and Ailish Kavangh went head to head in a tremendous duel of forward play. This victory came to Emmet’s after 3 final losses in previous years and a new rivalry was sparked as Chorca Duibhne pushed them all the way to the end, in a game that swung back and forth right up to the final whistle. Lauren Flavin graciously accepted the trophy on behalf of Emmets. Emmets Scorers: Savannah McCarthy 3-8, Aoife Shine 1-2,Rebecca Horgan0-1,Megan O’Connor 0-1.


Emmets U-21's had a good win over St. Senan's in the 2010 North Kerry Championship quarter final in Finuge on Monday evening last. Emmets inspired by Micheal Lynch, Conor Cox and Bryan Murphy ensured victory with Emmets 2-7 to 1-4 up at half time. Senan's got more into the game in the second half but the Listowel side had done enough in the first half to hold onto victory, final score Emmets 2-11 St. Senan's 1-11.


Emmets seniors had a great win over Skellig Rangers in Portmagee on Sunday last in far from idyllic conditions Emmets were two points up at the break with Shane Quinn, Jack McGuire and John Heaphy impressive. With scores hard to come by after the break both teams were guilty of ugly play but the home team got more into it and snatched a tie but thanks to Conor Cox Emmets found the front and stayed there. Well done to all involved in a well deserved victory. Emmets next meet Glenflesk away on the weekend of 25th September, this is another must win game for Emmets if they wish to stay in Division two.
