Newbridge St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Athgarvan GAA are going to take part in
the Newbridge St. Patrick’s Day parade. We are meeting in the Tesco Car park at 11:15am. Parade starts at 12 noon.
Our creative directors have suggested a ‘Braveheart’ theme for this years parade.The link with the movie filmed on the Curragh and the club colours makes it ideal.
All you need are club colours (if you have club jerseys please wear them). Anyone wishing to wear blue and white face paint please do- see images below for inspiration. Can children bring along any plastic swords and shields, fancy dress with a Braveheart theme etc that they may have.
Please join us at Tesco Car Park from 11:15 am on Friday morning for this years parade, We have two trophies to showcase so come along for a fun event for the club.
We are delighted to announce that the club were recently awarded a development grant by Leinster G.A.A. We are constantly striving to improve our facilities and make sure we can offer the best to our community, and this grant will help with that. Many thanks to Leinster G.A.A and to Colm Farrell Development Officer of Kildare G.A.A for his help and assistance in the application process.
