Listowel has a very long tradition of GAA involvement and achievement since June 1885 when Listowel GAA (The Feale Amateurs) was established as a GAA branch. In 1956 Emmets GAA Club was formed and in the following year the senior, intermediate and minor North Kerry League titles were won.
Success and high achievement in one form or another have been a constant presence since.
Frank Sheehy Park, the home of Listowel Emmets GAA Football Club, was re-opened in 1981 after substantial redevelopment and named in honour of the former Chairman to the County Board. The ground boasts a superb playing surface, a fine clubhouse and all-round excellent facilities.
Football training happens weekday evenings and weekends at Frank Sheehy Park or in the Town Park.
Listowel Emmets field male and female teams at Senior, Under 21, Minor and Under-Age levels. The Under-Age clubs cater for boys and girls from Under 6 through to Under 16.
Teams compete in the Kerry County and North Kerry Leagues, the Kerry Intermediate Championship and there is the opportunity to play Senior County Football with Feale Rangers.
