Athea G.A.A.

Our Junior Ladies Team played their first game of the championship on Sunday last in Monaleen against a strong Groody Gaels side. Athea led for much of the first half with Groody Gaels gradually building up their scores to finish with a draw – 2.10 to 2.10. The next day out for the ladies will be on August 30th against Ahane which will be played in Athea. Many thanks to all who travelled to Monaleen on Sunday last to support our ladies.
