Well done to our U13′s on their win on Tuesday, they now play in the final against Kildangan this Saturday morning in Hawkfield  at 10:30 am.  It would be great to see as much support as possible there to cheer on the lads.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Unfortunately the football season is coming to an end for Athgarvan GAA club.

The last day of Saturday training for U6 to U11 FOOTBALL will be Saturday 1 October. We have an U7 hurling league on-going and will continue with Hurling until this league ends in October. The other leagues are finishing with their last matches next week. We will therefore finish up with football training on Saturdays after training on 1st Oct.

A big thank you and well done to all the players and parents for the their commitment and efforts during the year. The players from u6 to U11 really played well at all ages in the leagues and blitzs they contested. The U16s were successful U16 champions and the the U13 and U15 are still involved and will continue training until the end of their leagues.Best of luck to them in their upcoming games.
