Athenry FC Archives 2012
Athenry senior team were extremley unlucky to lose 4-2 on penalties to Westport United in the Connacht cup final in their quest for 3 in a row. They would have been the first team to ever achieve this. The game was played in terrible windy conditions with few chances in normal and extra time wit a final score of 0-0. Athenry came closest through Conor Cannon and Gary Forde. Athenry defended very well against the wind in the second half with keeper John Grealish making some good saves and Ronan Kinneen and his back four in excellent form. John Grealish saved the first penalty for Athenry with Ray Moran and Stephen Rabbitte scoring 2 excellent penalties.
