Hi Everyone,

Our area athletics finals will be on Sunday May 22nd at 6pm. Join us in Dunlavin GAA for single and relay races and the Púc Fada.

Races can be entered by girls or boys from under 6- under 16 with the first 3 from all individual races going through to the area finals in Shillelagh on June 25th. We also have a tiny tots race for anyone who wants to join in!

As this is an event that needs a lot of manpower, we would really appreciate some extra people to help on the day. If you can give an hour or two, please contact the Facebook page, thank you!
