Emmett Lenehan RIP 

It was with great sadness that the club learned of the passing of one of our greats from our team of the ‘50s, Emmett Lenehan, last weekend in England. Emmett was another classy player, from the famed Lenehan football family of Gaigue, who could play in any position. He started his career with the county minors in 1950 at corner back and also played at wing forward and midfield where he displayed his “great catch and powerful kick”. He won a senior championship in 1951 where he was at corner back and throughout the year he displayed his “good hands and long clearance”. In the 4-3 to 1-8 final win over Mullinalaghta he was “in the thick of things right through”. He added another senior championship and senior league in 1953 and in the championship final himself and brother Frank contributed greatly to the victory over Colmcille. During this time, prior to the era of an U-21 grade, he also distinguished himself with the county juniors. The club added another title in 1955 with brothers Seán and Frank very much to the fore, while emigration had deprived Emmett of another medal. His skilful presence was sorely missed on the pitch in the following lean years. Our thoughts and prayers are with Emmett’s family and friends at this time. Solas na bhFlaitheas air
