Congratulations to the County Under 13 C1 Hurling Champions
The Club is upgrading its facilities with three new pitches, a ballwall, and a walking path.
The Club recently received planning permission for two new grass pitches, and all weather astro-turf pitch, ballwall, walking path, and associated site works.
In May the County Council asked the Club to revise the positioning of the all weather pitch so that they were not on top of the percolation area and stormwater soakway for the approved dressing room building.
Only one submission was made to the council concerning this project from the Department of Culture, Heritage, and the Gaeltacht noting that the development is in close proximity to a historical ringfort.
The department said that “Given the scale, extent, and location of the proposed development it is possible that subsurface archaeological remains could be encountered during the construction phases that involve ground disturbance”.
It recommended that archaeological monitoring should take place during construction work at the club.
Galway county council granted planning permission with seven conditions attached, including a stipulation that the all weather pitch shall not be used an later than 10pm.
25th Anniversary County Senior Hurling Final 1994
Playing with grit and determination against double All-Ireland club champions Sarsfields, Athenry raised their commitment to new heights to win the county senior hurling title at Duggan Park, Ballinasloe on the 30th of October. Coming so close on a number of occasions since their first victory, it was easy to see the relief and satisfaction among players and supporters when team captain Pat Higgins received the County Cup. Having enjoyed tremendous success at all under age levels during that period and a lot of talented young players coming through to the senior ranks winning the title had become the main objective of the club.
The team produced a superb team effort to dethrone Sarsfields who for the previous two years were unbeaten in club hurling. It was another wonderful day for the club and brought back memories of the unprecedented scenes of celebration that gripped the parish when P.J. Molloy and company won in 1987.
The winning Athenry team will be guests of honour at this year's County Hurling Final at Pearse Stadium
