In the midst of our Community Fun Day celebrations on Saturday last a special presentation was made to our groundsman of 25 years, the great Martin Scanlon. Our Field Committee Chairman Tadhg Moriarty gave a rousing speech in appreciation of a man who has given everything to Emmets over the years and has put his heart and soul into our field and club facilities. Martin was joined on the day by his family and close friends and by the men that have soldiered with him over the years. He has taken a step back from his role in recent times but as Tadhg mentioned he still has a key so I’m sure he will be keeping a close eye on proceedings to make sure we are all working hard!
Thanks for all of your hard work Martin and best wishes to you and your family going forward. You have been a huge part of Emmets and you always will be.
