Athea GAA

Club Membership:

For those who have not yet become members of Athea GAA Club they can still do so. This is a great way of supporting the Club at only a cost of €20 for the year. The GAA has the largest membership of any sports organisation in Ireland. When one becomes a member of a GAA club, they become part of the GAA family and part of a great community based organisation that continues to enhance the lives of so many people both young and old.

2014 Calendar:

Our 2014 Calendars are on sale at Rose’s shop, Paul Collins shop or from any of our coaches. The cost of the calendar is €5, it is full of team and action shot photographs which were taking through out the year of all our underage teams. It would make a great present for both here or abroad and everyone can have fun with the quiz on the back page.
