St. Patrick's Day Parade
Well done to all the boys and girls who marched in the St. Patrick's Day Parade. On a beautiful spring morning we had our best turnout in many a year when over 80 children and many other “big” children marching.  It was wonderful to see the blue and white adorning the streets. Special thanks to our Smurf mascots and to our make-up artists Val, Kate, Geraldine & Lauryn and also our flag carriers.  A special word of thanks to our resident photographer Padraig Devaney, see parade photos on Athlone GAA Official FB. 

Underage football for boys and girls age 4-12 continues every Sunday at 11.30am.  New players are always welcome and never hesitate to bring a friend. Any queries, contact David O'Connell at 087 2397519.
