Community Facebook Page

It’s a labour of love (most of the time!  ) where a few of us help out by sharing information that we think the town will find useful. We are people from Athenry and others that have moved into the town and the surrounding areas that wanted to help. If you’d like to get involved please get in contact. It’s super relaxed and there’s now over 1000 people following, so we must be doing something right! And if you have ideas or stuff you’d like to share, send it on! #community #Athenry

Contact them via their Facebook page – volunteers welcome.
