Athea GAA

Well Done:

I’m sure there were many happy ‘Mayo’ and ‘Kerry’ supporters in our parish and beyond when both teams won their respective games over the weekend. Hopefully “they will go all the way now” . Who knows there could be a ‘Mayo v Kerry’ All-Ireland and wouldn’t that be fun!

500 Draw:

Well, the tickets are going well for the forthcoming annual fund-raising Club Draw. Following an executive Club meeting on Monday last it was hoped that most households will have now purchased a ticket. Seeing as many ages both male and female use the pitch along with the youth of our parish – it’s vital that everyone supports the club by buying a ticket – as the giant advertising poster says –

 “We are fit – we are healthy

Join our Club Draw

And you could be wealthy”

It’s great to see the poster depicting all those groups using the pitch.

Incidentally if you need a ticket you can get one from any of the committee or phone me Kathleen on 087-1233361.


Training continues for the Intermediates as they prepare for their West Final game against Rathkeale in the near future – time and date has yet to be decided. We wish them well.
