We played our last group game last Tuesday evening in Athea against St.Kieran’s. We had 24 players available for the match and again we were able to field two even teams Athea Maroon and Athea White.

We played two games each 12minutes a-side and played very well in all four matches. The large support from Athea had a lot to cheer about as Athea played some lovely football, kicking some great scores and defending heroically at times. Great credit is due to both teams for the high standard of football played. Training will continue on Friday evenings and we hope to organise a Parish league before the season ends.


Athea Maroon: Tony Ambrose, Liam Dalton, Eoin Ahern, Daniel Hunt, Tadhg Hunt, Loren Healy, Patrick Healy, Aaron Hunt, Tom Mullane, Eoin Kenrick, Cathal Fitzgerald and John Ahern

Athea White: Conor Leach, Aaron Broderick, Daniel Broderick, Daniel Weiland, Mark Ahern, Shea Ahern, Mark Collins, Paddy O’Connor, Oisin McCarthy, Liam Og Reidy, Shane Ahern and Jack Leahy

U13 Boys

The U13 boys footballers  are playing  Dromin/Athlacca/Banogue in the County Final on this Saturday morning Oct 2nd  at 10.45am in Mick Neville Park, Rathkeale. As with all finals, there will be a charge of €5 at the gate.The boys got a walkover from Bruff in the semifinal so they haven’t  played  a game in a while, but we have no doubt this young team  will give their all as they always do. The team is managed by Mike Flynn, with current U19 players, Luke Gleeson, Pierse O’Brien and T.J Hunt as coaches.

Junior A Men’s

We bowed out of the Junior A Championship on Friday evening after a brave display from our boys. It was a tough game of football, with both sides fighting hard for scores. The match finished on a scoreline of Athea 0-07, Mountcollins 0-08. We will remain in Junior A for another year, but the foundations set this year will pay off in time. Huge thanks to the team and management for their dedication over the last few months, and for providing some excellent thrilling games throughout the league and championship. Best of luck to Mountcollins Gaa in their remaining games in the Championship.

Junior Ladies

Our ladies were beaten by a good Galtee Gales side on Sunday last on a scoreline of 3-05 to 1-06. The team will play Groody Gales next on Sunday October 10th in a must win game .

Well done to our Junior ladies who beat Athea today on a score line of 3-5 to 1-6
