Athea/Mountcollins Rangers who had their game cancelled on a couple of occasions eventually got to play it on Saturday last against St. Senan’s in Ballyhahill at 4pm. The second half of the game saw the combination making a good comeback ans at the whistle the score read (4-8) to (2.15) with Athea/Mountcollins winning by just a mere point. Well done lads.

Executive Meeting:

Many topics were up for discussion at our recent executive meeting. The AGM will be held in the next few weeks on a Sunday evening – more about that nearer the time. The gym is being used by the players to it’s full potential and is a great asset. Jamie Kelly attended the meeting and is doing great work looking back on all the archives and GAA news and matches etc from many years ago. Hopefully the booklet on all this will be put together in the not too distant future. Anyone out there who may have more information on past GAA news, is welcome to pass it on to Jamie.
