Anyone who wishes to contribute, particularly former officers or managers, can email or contact Toirdealbhach (087) 6447603 or Mike (087) 2727173 for more details. The first article will be “The Harrington Era 1965-1969”, a personal account of the foundation of the club by Dan Harrington.

Best of luck:

The club wish the best of luck to senior player Brian O’Connor and his film crew who are up for “short film award” at the Cannes film festival.

Condolences: The club would like to extend its sympathy to the Foley family on their recent bereavement.


Under 12 League                 

Our under 12 played their last away game last Saturday at a windswept Mastergeeha. Athletic opened brightly and were unlucky not to be two goals up inside the first 10 minutes while playing some great football for a team that didn’t play for ages. Geehy scored against the run of play and held that lead until 10 minutes from time when they scored two late goals to take the points. Athletic can take heart from this game as this young team put in a great hour. The scoreline doesn’t do justice to their efforts.
