Fair play to Emmet on a great career in the kildare jersey...a fella who worked very hard for everything that came his way!! I couldn't believe he wasn't brought on towards the end of the armagh game...where we were crying out for his experience/leadership!

His score against Limerick to force extra-time in 2011 is top three I've ever seen from a Kildare player. Started on own 21 with game over and basically pure will saw him outlast every Limerick player, and finish a move he started for extra-time we won easy. Some warrior which we need but mixed it with quality.

Happy retirement Emmet. His group may not have won the silverware but by Jesus they sweated blood to put Kildare back on the map. Will never forget his goal against Meath 2011 which had me dancing around the place. Best wishes in the next chapter!

If you were in the trenches you would want him in beside you. One of Geezer's leaders who gave everything to the cause. As a supporter you can ask no more. As Tommy said the point v Limerick was pure guts, but he had the necessary skills and bottle to score with the last kick.

A great servant and player many thanks Emmet.

The best wing-back in the country at the height of his powers. A joy to watch. Best of luck to him.

Goal against Meath in Navan was hard to beat. Great career. Well done Emmets.

When you look back on it he dug us out last kick of game-mail to stay in Championship against Limerick. Same to beat Laois in league with goal in Portlaoise. 2-01 in a half against a highly rated Monaghand in last 12 and 1-02 in Navan that day. All critical times. Serious leadership from the left half back.

Our Lee Keegan. Couldn't pay him a bigger compliment. Alongside Rainbow as the best wing back I've seen play for us. Arguably better as he was a game changer as referenced above.

Great servant. He worked so hard from a young age to get onto the minor team and even harder to have the career he had. Well done Emmet.

I'm very disappointed to hear this as I'd have thought he still had a lot to offer. He's only 32 in November. It's rather a shame that inter county players in their mid 30s are a rare breed these days.

Nonetheless, should Emmett happen upon this comment, I wish him well and congratulate him on a fine inter county career.

A savage player, gave everything for the jersey. Love the comparison with Keegan two very similar players. Bolton scored some very important goals and points for us most notably against Meath, Monaghan, Limerick and Laois. Best of luck in your retirement Emmet.

Not forgetting league and championship titles with his club. He's won more silverware and individual honours than 95% of footballers in the county.
