Athea GAA Club Notes:
Step to the Beat:
Step to the Beat continues on Thursday evening from 7pm – 8pm. During this hour, music will play over our speaker system and those who attend will be free to walk/jog on our track with music playing in the background as a motivational factor and to beat the winter blues! Split the bucket entries can also be purchased during this hour. Looking forward to seeing you then.
Our Annual General Meeting will take place on Sunday January 14th at 7.30pm at Con Colbert Memorial Hall. All members are invited to attend.
