Athea GAA

GAA History:

Jamie Kelly of Clash has agreed to interview people and put together a booklet on the history of Athea GAA as its coming up to the anniversary of the club. There are many knowledgeable individuals in the parish who know so much about past matches, players, incidents that occurred and so much more. If anyone out there wouldn’t mind doing a short interview with Jamie they might let  Chairman Paul Curry know or indeed any of the committee.

As it would be lovely to have this keepsake in years to come names that have been mentioned with an abundance of past GAA knowledge in Athea are Johnny and Conor Mullane, Billy Collins, Sean Hanrahan, Seanie Connors, Tom O’Keeffe, Timmy Woulfe. If anyone can think of anyone else who might give a few minutes of their time to help Jamie in his search for information you might come forward, it would be great.

Championship:

Athea will have their 1st Championship game against Castlemahon at the end of next week. The date and time has still to be confirmed. We wish them well in this first game.

Sympathy:

Sympathy is extended by the club to Margaret O’Connor, Upper Athea and Jerry Brouder of Templeathea on the death in England of their sister.

U14s:

Congrats and well done to the Athea U14s boys who played against Shannon Gaels on Monday evening last in Ballyhahill. They had an outstanding game and the scoreline of 6-10 to 1-2 showed this.

Team: Gearóid O’Sullivan, Pierse O’Brien, James Lee, Cillian O’Connor, Dermot Pierse, Andrew O’Riordan, Eoin O’Shea, Brandon Finucane, Conor Mullane, Daire O’Shea, Michael Walsh, Callum Buckley, Gavin Ambrose, T.J. Hunt, Evan Curry, James Broderick.

Cards:

The final card game of the season took place at the Top of the Town on Monday night last. The club extends a sincere thanks to everyone who supported the games during October until now. Hopefully the cards will be back again in the Autumn – see you then.

Athea GAA

West Intermediate Championship:

Our intermediate team were victorious over Abbeyfeale Intermediates in a thrilling game which produced a very positive performance. It was great to see such a great deal of support with cars parked for a great distance on both sides of the pitch. Patrick Aherne and Kevin Murphy scored the goals for the home side, while the points were shared between Michael Reidy, Mark Reidy, Pa Ahern and Kevin Murphy.

Team: Ger Collins, Padraig Reidy, Matthew Tierney, Ray Brouder, Tommy Quaid, Denis Greaney, Shane Tierney, Michael Reidy, Jason Kelly, Darren Murphy, Pa Ahern, Neilo Keane, Kevin Murphy, Mark Reidy, James Ryan. Subs used: Sean Ryan, Padraig Walsh & William Mullane.

Improvements:

At a recent committee meeting several suggestions were made with regard to the pitch and surrounding area. It is hoped now with the weather improving that a good deal of work will be accomplished. The dug-outs, it is hoped, will be the next thing on the horizon, also the area outside the dressing rooms and kitchen, which is very wet always, will in the not too distant future be covered in ready-mix concrete. Lights on the running track also are an idea waiting to be sorted. In all the pitch and track are constantly being improved and will be one of the best in the area when completed and a great asset especially to our youth.

Under Age:

Have all underage players been registered ? It’s €30 for the whole season for 1 child, €50 for a family and €20 for any newcomers (bring birth cert). This is a small amount really for a whole season of fun-filled football, training and matches – making good friendships, taking discipline orders and much more and it keeps the young people off the streets and maybe getting into trouble and as well as all that getting fit is a vital element now, with all the obesity etc that’s being recognised in young kids.

Cards:

The final GAA card game for this season is on at the Top of the Town on Monday next, April 10th at 9pm. with some extra prizes on offer.

There were joint winners of the card game at the Top of the Town on Monday night April 3rd with 13 games. Christina O’Donoghue, Paddy Enright and John Scanlon tied with Patsy Hartnett, Ger Murphy and Eileen Murphy. The table prize winners were Mike O’Connor and John Hunt. Raffle winners were Mary Holland, Siobhán Barrett.

A big thank you to all those who supported it since we started back in October, hopefully you all enjoyed the games, especially the nights you got good cards.

U14:

The U14 footballers had a good game against Shannon Gaels (Glin/Gerald Griffins) in Glin on Friday night last. Both teams served up a very exciting game for their supporters, made up mainly of parents and girlfriends who did lots of cheering

Team: Daire O’Shea, Fergal Pierse, Pierce O’Brien, Cillian O’Connor, Dermot Pierse, Michael Tierney, Gavin Ambrose, Andrew O’Riordan, Eoin O’Shea, James Lee, T.J. Hunt, Michael Walsh, James Broderick, Brandon Finucane, Gavin Mulvihill and Evan Curry.
