Athea GAA


Well the Athea U/14s had a great win over Foynes on Friday night last in Foynes, on a scoreline of (7-7) to (2-7). Indeed an impressive win. Well done, a great team effort.


The U/16s will be meeting Drom/Broadford in the Co. Final in a couple of weeks time. We wish them well and they will appreciate all support.

Páirc na nGael:

Well the Lippy-fencing is almost erected now and once again another step forward to getting the pitch to 100%. The back wall of the dug-out has been blocked and all hands are on deck to get as much work as possible completed before the winter months.


The next Intermediate championship match will be against Gerald Griffins on Sunday, August 20th at 7pm in Glin.

500 Draw:

With the next leg of the club draw coming up in the not too distant future – you can still buy a ticket for the remaining draws from any GAA member.


You are asked to “brainstorm” and come up with ideas for the winter months for another fund-raiser like last year’s Lip-Sync. Maybe a “Zumba night” – a “battle of the townlands”, a “country and western night” – get your ideas together.
