Hurling

Athenry Community Games Under-11 hurlers completed a fantastic year with the All-Ireland Community Games Silver medal. On Saturday the boys came back from the dead to beat Leinster Champions Shinrone Coolderry of Offaly by 2 points in the semi final. Our lads were well down at half time but battled back with great goals by Adam O’Halloran and 2 by Jason Rabbitte, while a great defensive display kept the Offaly side at bay in the second half.
In the final the Athenry lads started very well but they struggled against a very strong Glenmore-Tullogher-Rosbercon team from Kilkenny. Two goals by Enda Murphy kept Athenry in the game but the Kilkenny side pulled away in the last ten minutes. Led by team captain Stephen Feeney, Athenry won the Galway County title with great victories of Clarinbridge, Gort, Moycullen and Oranmore.

Health and Wellbeing Evening
Thank you very much to Iggy Clarke and Justin Campbell for the Health and Wellbeing evening last Friday 12 May in the Community Centre. It was great to see so many from the local community taking an interest in a very far-reaching talk, which covered a wide range of topics in relation to physical and mental health.  Some of the topics covered were obesity, smoking, alcohol and drug use, the impact of technology and positive mental health strategies.  The role of the Health and Wellbeing officer was explained and examples of the GAA's Healthy Club Project were discussed.  See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akhV-ylowyc for one great example. We hope that this will be the start of more Health and Wellbeing initiatives in St Mary's GAA Athenry. Feedback and suggestions for possible projects can be sent to the club secretary or the club's Health and Wellbeing Officer Mixie Donohue @ This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thanks

Many thanks to all helped make Athenry Enterprise Town a great success. Our young hurlers, footballers and camogie players enjoyed being in the company of Davy Fitzgerald , Tommy Walsh, Dervla Higgins,PJ Molloy and Tom Flynn for their blitz and the panel discussion which preceded it, all of the special guests were very generous with their time, signing autographs and posing for photos.

Congratulations to: Athenry Soccer Club on winning the Galway Premier League and to Athenry Camogie Club who won the Intermediate League Final.

Well done to Athenry U-16 hurlers who defeated Oranmore Maree tonight to top the U-16A Group. Athenry trailed by 0-03 to 1-04 at
half time but put in a serious shift in the second half with some lovely scores from Emmet Ruane, Conor Fahy and Brandon Lee to name a few. Athenry now look forward to a County A semifinal vs St Thomas.
Final score: Athenry 0-15 Oranmore/Maree 1-10 Scorers: Paddy Rabbitte 0-05 Conor Fahy 0-01 Donal Parr 0-02 Mark Hardiman 0-02 Brandon

Athenry and Craughwell under 14 hurlers shared the spoils in the U14A Championship match played in Carnaun. Playing with a strong breeze in the first half Athenry failed to capitalize and went into the second half trailing by 3 points to 1 point. Athenry improved in the second half and
were unlucky not to snatch a win. Final score Athenry 0-03 Craughwell 0-03. Scorers: Ben Haverty 0-01 Eanna Brady 0-02

Good luck to all involved in
