Emmets ladies

Congrats to Kerry U16 ladies county team especially Manager Graham Shine and Listowel Emmets Sophie Lynch on retaining the Munster under 16 championship title.

The Listowel U14 girls community games football team competed in the county competition on Monday May 2nd. The team consisted entirely of Emmets players who did themselves, their club and town immensely proud by capturing the U14 county title for 2016. The feat was all the more impressive as they beat highly fancied teams from South of the county along the way. First up was Rathmore/Gneeveguilla and what a game this turned out to be with Listowel battling every inch of the way to etch out a one point win. After an easy win in game two against Keel, next up was the semi final and a match against  Cahirciveen and some old foes from the Southern Gaels club. Again this was an epic encounter with the Listowel girls powering to a 2 point win and a place in the final against a Killorglin side who had brushed aside all opposition en route. Once again this was an epic encounter and when last year's All-Ireland U14 community games champions goaled to take the lead two minutes from time it looked to be all over for the team from North of the county. But the Listowel girls were having none of it and their response was swift and decisive, moving the ball up to the opponents inline before working across for a wonderful goal of their own. When the final whilstle blew, the Listowel girls were county champions with 2 points to spare. This was a truly magnificent campaign for this team who showed a steelie determination and no small amount of skill along the way.  They now go on to represent Kerry in Munster where hopefully their tough county campaign will stand to them. Well done to all involved and we wish them the best of luck for the remainder of the competition.

Coiste na nÓg

The Saturday Morning club for boys and girls  continues each Saturday morning from 10.30 until 12 in Frank Sheehy Park. The kids are having great fun while learning football skills and are also making new friends. New member are always welcome. 

Well done to both our under 12 teams who played great football on Sunday May 1st to defeat two Keel outfits comprehensively. This group of players are playing very well and are great prospects for the future. They have now won 4 games out of 4 in 3A and 3B of the county league and must play Moyvane in the last game which is yet to be fixed. Well done to both under 12 teams and management!

Our under 14s have recently completed their County league campaigns and are now training hard for North Kerry competitions. The boys played very well in the county league and have a lot of positives to carry into the rest of the season.

The under 16s are preparing for a North Kerry league final against Beale which promises to be a great game. Our boys went through the group stages undefeated but had a great battle with Beale in the league and narrowly came out on top so this game promises to be no different. 

Our annual awards night for the 2015 season is on Friday the 13th of May at 6.30 in the clubhouse. All are encouraged to attend. 

Finally a word of appreciation must given to Knocknagashal/Brosna Gaa clubs who hosted the launch of the John West feile competitions on Monday last in Brosna GAA grounds. The event was extremely well organised with both GAA President, Aoghán Ó Fearghail and LGFA President Marie Hickey in attendance. The John West Feile Peil na nÓg itself will take place between the 24th and 26th of June.
