Nora Cunningham and her sister Eileen Naughton at Margaret Costello’s get together in the Listowel Arms recently.


This week we send Happy Birthday Wishes to Teady Woulfe of School Road, Templeathea who celebrates his 90th birthday today Tuesday 17th. Wishing him many more years of Health and Happiness.

Wasn’t it wonderful to see our Healthy Athea on Operation Transformation last Wednesday night and despite not getting a lot of time coverage, it was brilliant to see how great the Walking Track is proving to be. From the point of losing weight or a few pounds, to the safety of being able to walk for everyone both young and old without the Fear of being Mowed down by cars etc flying off the road. And as I heard on Radio Kerry the other day and I quote 

There’s no such thing as Bad Weather it’s Bad Dressing. In other words dress for the Weather and just Get Out. It’s not only good for the Body but brilliant for the Mind.

Even for depression in London doctors are now advising patients to get a Bike and with Exercise being at crisis level  for even 9 year olds  parents are being advised to get children off their Phones and Tablets wrap up and get Fresh Air into their Lungs.

The death has taken place in Yorktown Heights, New York, of Mary A Quigley, formerly Murphy of Gortnagross, and last remaining of the Murphy Family. Sympathy is offered to family, relatives and friends of Mary. May she rest in peace.

A great crowd attended the A.G.M of Athea G.A.A at the Hall on Sunday night last. It was brilliant to see an increase in the number of young parents attending and young students also. The club has many units now including Athea Senior, Athea Ladies Footballers, Coiste, Hurling Club, Healthy Athea etc all with great volunteers who work so hard during the year, they must be complimented. And in the very near future Timmy Woulfe and Johnny Mullane will be recognised for their years of involvement in Athea GAA by being Life Time Presidents and a get together in the hall will mark their achievement. Also on Sunday night one of our Eldest parishioners in his 90s attended the meeting namely Patie O’Sullivan, well done to him and to Seanie Hanrahan another great GAA enthusiast.

Thanks was extended to all who become members of the club and you can still pay your membership through Club Force on line or to the Commitee. Here’s to theClub’s success in 2023.


Every Day Is A New Beginning. Take a Deep Breath and Start Afresh.
