Well what a year it has been again for our Gaelic 4 Mothers & Others team.  The final event on the G4M&O calendar is the National Blitz organised by the LGFA and hosted by Naomh Mearnog, Portmarnock, with over 2000 Ladies in attendance from clubs all over Ireland.  We only had one team available to travel this year, but the Ladies that did, made sure to represent our full squad with the same determination and fun as we did every other year!  Athlone played teams from Clare, Sligo, Roscommon, Tyrone and Antrim with Athlone running out winners in 3 out of our 5 games!  We were once again presented with "winners" medals and the now infamous Colander Cup.  The Blitz finished with an invitation to the Athlone G4M&O team from 2FM  to conduct a live radio interview following our historic back to back "victories"! Athlone G4M&O now takes a break for the Winter, training resumes in the Spring.  See Athlone Gaelic 4 Mothers & Others on Facebook for more photos and info.
