Intermediates: Emyvale played Toome on Sunday last in Tully in the relegation semifinal play off and came out winners by an 8-point margin 2 – 16 to 14 points. Emyvale dominated the game for large periods and kept a 5 or 6 point margin between themselves and Toome for most of the game. However, there was a stage early in the second half where Toome reduced the lead to 3 points but a few composed heads on the home side helped by another master class in free kick taking by Conor Forde pushed out the lead again and killed off the Toome resistance. This completes the IFL for this season and now it’s all eyes on the championship which starts on the 1st weekend in August. Well done on a solid performance lads.

U13’s: The much-awaited Shield final V Inniskeen was played on Tuesday evening, and what a game it was. Emyvale started poorly with a sharp Inniskeen side aided by a strong breeze scoring 1:03 in the early minutes of the first half before Emyvale responded with a point. However, this trend continued to half time break which saw Emyvale trail by 13pts at the midway point. This team showed amazing self-belief to come out and turn things around in the second half. Some fine scores were taken and Emyvale fought their way back into the game and had a 6-point lead with two minutes to go. Inniskeen were not for letting it go however, and rattled in two goals to tie the contest up. Extra time was played and Emyvale took the lead and saw the duel out to lift the cup on a final score Emyvale 5:14 – 7:06 Inniskeen. Well done lads.
U11’s: training Monday and Thursday from 6:45 to 8pm in Tully.

Cul Camp: A very successful and enjoyable Cul camp was held in Emyvale GAA Grounds last week. A very large attendance – thanks to all for a very well-organized event.
Charity Event: Shane Mc Carron is a well and respected Emyvale GAA member and he is holding a fundraising event on 23rd of July for Various Charities with a few friends. Some details for the reason behind the fundraising are: On the 12th of April 2021 our little girl/sister couldn’t wait any longer and came hurtling into the world at 11.23am a full three months early. Evie weighed 2lbs 7oz and faced a tough road to get herself home.
The Neo Natal Unit in Drogheda became our second home but after 100 days Evie finally made it home. We had many ups and downs while in NICU but the care we and Evie got was second to none.
We as a family are forever indebted to the staff of the NICU for the expertise, compassion and care they gave Evie during her stay. For that reason, Shane (along with help from a few others) will be undertaking an 100km Duathlon to raise much needed funds for the unit. Two local charities will benefit too, Errigal Truagh Special Needs & Alzhemiers Monaghan. Please share and donate if possible! The link is : https://gf.me/u/3c2xib . Emyvale GAA would like to wish Shane and Friends all the best with the Duathlon Event this Saturday
Lads&Dads: The Emyvale lads & Dads had another super evening of footie away to Killyclogher GAA last Saturday. They played 4 by 15 min quarter. Emyvale hammered home 5-5 in the first quarter with Shane mc Cormack finding the net a few times. Killyclogher got the better of Emyvale in the 2nd Quarter, but Emyvale extended their lead in the 3rd Quarter and 4th Quarter was pretty even. In the end Emyvale won the game by about 10 points, super performances from Stephen Mc Aree in Goals, the defense was made up of Enda O Brien, Glynn Williams, Brendan Keenan, Keith murphy and Brendan Stewart. The midfield duo were Paul Bogue and Carl Murphy. The forwards on the day and all got on the scoreboard were Seamus Fields, Shane Mc Cormack, Gerard Mc Caffrey, Barry Mohan and Marty McAree. Some super points scored on the day but in particular Gerard Mc Caffrey and Barry Mohan fired home some fine scores from the Left and right half forward line. Many thanks to Killylough for the refreshments after the match – much needed after a tough 60 minutes on the pitch. Thanks to the traveling support and a great day was had by all.
