Athea GAA


Well on Saturday last our neighbours St. Kieran’s met NewcastleWest here in our pitch in the West Senior Championship. There was a big crowd of supporters in attendance on the day, all being very complimentary of the beautiful pitch and track and with the sun shining on the day it was indeed an added bonus! St. Kieran’s came out winners by 3pts on a final scoreline of 2-7 to 0-10.


The Athea Intermediates meet Oola I Oola on Saturday next March 18th in their 1st Div 2 league match. Check again for time and details etc and your support would be greatly appreciated.

Wishing all the teams at all levels a successful 2017 season.

Upcoming Wedding

The club wishes all the best to Jamie Collins and his bride to be Siobhan who are getting married in Killarney this Thursday.


Registration will be collected at training over the coming weeks. Letters have been distributed with details.


I was up at the pitch on Sunday evening walking the track and I met a mother who had 6 kids with her and they all running around. The older ones kicking ball, improving their skills and the little ones just enjoying the freedom, get all the kids out and away from their electronic devices, TV etc– it’s great for their minds and bodies and parents sanity.
