Athea GAA

Once again there was a large crowd at our card game in Brown Joe’s bar on Monday night last. The winners with fourteen games were. Many thanks to all those who supported our card game and we would be hoping to see you all again next week at the Top of the town Bar 9pm sharp. All card players are more than welcome and we will hopefully see a few new faces. This is part of the clubs fundraising for the pitch development which to date has cost €130,000. All monies raised will go towards reducing the debt of the pitch development.

Club Draw:

Our next Club Draw will be held at the Top of the Town Bar this Saturday night November 12 at 11.30pm. All are welcome to attend. A big thank you to all those who have supported our draw again this year.

Lip Sync Battle:

Plans are at an advanced stage for our ‘Lip Sync Battle’ Fundraiser on February 4th at Devon Inn Hotel. Many acts have now confirmed their participation – a decision they most definitely will not regret. We are now appealing to the generous business community or indeed any generous individuals of West Limerick /North Kerry to act as main sponsors for the event. In return for €1000 in sponsorship we will offer:

Your business logo placed on all posters (100), tickets (600), roadside posters (10) & sponsorship cards (55)
Your business logo will also appear on all YouTube clips which will be published online throughout the rehearsal process and post-performance.

Your business will be mentioned on all press releases and will also be prominently displayed on the night.
Your business will also be frequently mentioned on our facebook page ‘Athea Gaa Lip Sync Fundraiser’ which currently has 1875 friends and continues to receives friend requests daily.
Our twitter page @AtheaGAA which currently has 440 followers will feature your business name
Our new look website will feature your business name and
A DVD will also be recorded on the night which all main sponsors will feature in. This will ensure that long after the event is over, your business will continue to be advertised.
We very much hope to make our main sponsors a part of the event on the night so as an added bonus; we will also offer a VIP package which will include two complimentary tickets, front row seating and a complimentary DVD of the night.

As we prepare to enter the following phases of our development project, which includes the erection of a fence, flood lighting and a walking track, we are now offering an exciting and very new sponsorship opportunity.

Please send us a message on this or contact any member of the committee for more information

Parish League:

Our Parish League took place on Sunday last for our U10s, U8s and U6s. This was great day for all the players, parents and Grandparents as they were served up a fantastic feast of football from all who took part on a fine sunny day. All the players got medals for their enormous efforts on the new field and everyone were served light refreshments afterwards in the clubhouse. A big thank you to our referees, Derek Byrne and Tommy Denihan and to all those helped out on the day and brought treats for all to enjoy. It is greatly appreciated by the club.
