Sponsorship: 2020 has been a tough year so far with Covid19 changing the world in which we live, work and play. The new ‘normal’ is being introduced gradually with the hope that the Coronavirus is under control but we must remain vigilant and adhere to the restrictions or we will end up back where we were in April etc. Training for football has begun again in a guarded manner and official fixtures will begin within the next week. However during the ‘Lockdown’ there was no activity in GAA circles but bills had to be paid and there are ongoing expenses that must be met. The difficulty was that there was nothing coming in to replace what had to go out. Emyvale Juveniles have been back in training and their first games coming up which means that the expenses go up as well. In recent years Emyvale juveniles have received excellent support from Glynn Williams from Emyvale Centra and he has come on board again for this year, which takes some of the financial pressure off the committee. He handed over the sponsorship to Shane McCormack, chairman of the Juvenile Committee, accompanied by two other members of the committee, Sharon McKenna and Ollie McKenna. Shane expressed the appreciation of the Club to Glynn and thanked him for his generosity and support.
The first presentation of funds raised by the Emyvale GAA players was held at the Clubhouse on July 15th when representatives of those involved handed over €5,605 to Pieta House and there to collect for them was Brian McEvoy. He expressed the thanks of Pieta House to the club for the great work they have done in raising the money and deciding to present it to Pieta House. Due to Covid19 Pieta House needed financial support more than ever to meet the demand on their services and this money would ensure that lives will be saved. Sen McKenna, organiser of Darkness into light in Monaghan, congratulated the Club for this marvellous contribution. Greg Devlin stated that the Club were very conscious of the work of Pieta House and that it was a unanimous decision to select it as a recipient and he thnaked all those who took part and a special thank you to the great generosity of the people who donated to the cause. Our picture shows Greg handing over the cheque to Brian. Also in picture are: Sean McKenna, Nicholas McMahon, Sean McMeel, Shane McCormack, Aaron Loughran and Mary McCaffrey.

Emyvale GFC:
Seniors – Last Sunday we were treated to an entertaining match where our Seniors came out on top in a local derby with Tyholland. Tyholland started the brighter and raced into a 2point lead within opening 5 minutes. Daniel settled our men with a nice point after 5 mins to get us off the mark. Tyholland responded with another two quick points and after 10mins we were 4points to 1 down. Niall struck a fine point and this was followed by Ryan and then Niall again. Entering the final 5 minutes of the first half the game was finely balanced. Emyvale then hit a purple patch with points from Niall, Stephen and Danny. David then got on the end of a pass from Niall to get the opening goal of the game. Tyholland chased a score with half time looming but a magnificent block from Ryan prevented this. Half time score 1.8 to 6pts. The start of the second half followed a similar pattern to that of the first where Tyholland added 2 quick points. These were cancelled out by Ryan with 2 points and a free from Conor. Then Tyholland were awarded a 14 yard free and quick thinking from Shane Treanor resulted in a goal for tyholland leaving just two points between the sides. Tyholland then got another goal shortly after but this was disallowed as the ball was deemed to have been carried over the line. This left a nervous 10mins as Tyholland chased the game however our lads responded brilliantly with two more points from Karl and Niall. Tyholland pulled one back leaving three points between the sides and with the final kick of the game, it was saved on the line by Stephen Askin. Final score 1.14 to 1.11. We are now sitting with two wins out of two which puts us in a good position with two games left.
