Take the Challenge! The Emmets are seeking additional volunteers for the “Annual Christmas Day Swim” at Creevy! For over thirty years the club has been financially helping local charities through this worthy event; all monies raised go towards local groups or societies and will assist them greatly in their specific work! This is the ultimate “ice challenge” even if you can’t swim; for the sake of a few minutes; you can defy the elements for the benefit of a good cause. The swim is totally supervised by the local Sub-Aqua Recovery Unit! This is a special occasion for the young and old swimmers some of whom have been participating for many years! Brave men and women are invited to “take the plunge” and participate in the fun and excitement! Refreshments will be available with a little something to warm the cockles of the heart! Pass the word or share this message with someone who might be courageous enough to offer their “goodwill” on the Festive Day! More details next week!
Where there's a will there's a relative goes the old saying.Farney Players new production shows you just how far distant relatives will go to get their greedy hands on their dead ancestors money.This is an ingenious and wildly comic romp which enjoyed critically acclaimed reviews upon it's debut in the West End many years ago.
We wish to acknowledge the many players who returned their Gaelic Sunday Sponsorship Cards. We appreciate and value your efforts. We also ask that anybody who still has a sponsorship card (either filled or unfilled) to return it to the club at the next training session. Each player who raised money for the club was entered into a free draw. The winners of the three O'Neill's footballs were Patrick Larney, Oran Finnegan and Ella McMahon. Congratulations - The Gaelic Sunday Committee.
Vote of Sympathy! The Emmets wish to express their condolences to the Ross family of Mullinary on passing of Patrick Ross (Junior) who died recently after a short illness. Patrick (Paddy) was an avid Monaghan supporter and he loved to follow his native county all over the country; whenever and wherever they played. It was on one such journey that Patrick succumbed to his initial illness earlier this year when he was travelling home with his friends from a National League game between Monaghan and Donegal. Patrick always had time to talk and chat about the county team; how they were doing and where they were going; he also enjoyed other sports as well. His grandfather also named Patrick; was a top GAA official on the County Committee and a great former Emmet’s man; it was through his shop that the sound of radio commentary was brought to many young and old football enthusiasts of Carrickmacross town. Patrick suffered another misfortune with the passing of his father Patrick senior in late August which was a great family loss for his only son! To his loving mother Vera; we convey our sympathies at this particular tragic time for herself personally and her family; her good and likable young man will be remembered by those who knew him well! To Patrick’s cousin; Anne and her family; especially Aaron (Lynch) who is a playing member of our Intermediate team; we offer our commiserations on this very sad occasion!
Annual General Meeting! Each year the Emmets hold their Annual General Meeting. It is the most important meeting of the year and every eﬀort should be made to ensure that it is well attended by those who have the interest of the club at heart.
Congratulations! The Emmets send their whole hearted congratulations to Joseph Patton and his lovely bride Helen Howley on the occasion of their wedding; which they celebrated last week!
