Coiste na nÓg:


Thursday April 26:

Athea U12s played their first game away to St.Senans on Thursday evening April 26. We had fourteen players on the night, which was a good turnout. The first half score was St.Senans, 0-3 to Athea’s 0-2; both teams were very evenly matched. In the second half, St.Senans scored two goals to Athea’s one point; the score line did not reflect the game. Athea had great possession, but could not get the scores. Well done to both teams on the night.

Team: Tomás Ahern, Callum O’ Mahony, James Hunt, Callum Buckley, Sean Twomey, Evan Curry, Tadgh Ahern, Jamie Collins, Rory Cleary, Jim Ahern, Ciaran Hunt, Louis  O’ Sullivan, Jack Sexton and  Alex  Quinn.
