​​Well done to our instrumental group who captured the senior Scor county title last Friday evening in Ballinamuck. The team now go on to represent Emmet Og in the Leinster semi final in the Downs club, Mullingar on Sunday next, March 8th at 3pm. The group was made up of Dervla Murphy, Mary Walsh, Sean Mulroy, Jim McLoughlin and Gerry McKenna. We wish them every success in the semi final. All support would be appreciated.

Emmet Og GAA Club have signed up to the Topaz cash for clubs loyalty competition which Topaz are now running up to the 15th of May 2015. To support our club in this fundraiser, simply pick up a card at your local topaz service station. Every time you purchase fuel valued at €40 or over, you will receive a stamp on the card and upon completion of the card (5 stamps) simply return it to us. If we get 300 completed cards we are then entered into their draw for the following prizes.

  • 1 prize of €10,000,
  • 10 prizes of €5,000
  • 140 prizes of €1,000

Additionally all clubs entered who do not win will receive €250 from Topaz. This is an opportunity not to be missed. Simply fill up at your local TOPAZ service station, get your card and fill it with stamps (5) and return it to Thomas Quinn or any club member at Emmet Og. Perhaps if you don’t use that much fuel a few people could pool together to fill a card. Our registration code is 10481.

Well done to the Longford senior and under 21 teams on impressive wins last week. Great to see so many Killoe lads involved with both teams. Best wishes to the under 21 team against Louth this Wednesday evening.
