Castlegar A.C. have been relatively quiet in recent years, but have a strong and proud history. Long before Craughwell or Athenry A.C senior clubs existed these guys were winning medals at national level. Let's hope this reunion kick-starts another great era for this great Galway athletic club.

We are holding a club reunion on Saturday the 9th October, 2010 in the Clayton
Hotel, Galway, to commemorate, 35 years since the club was founded. We extend a warm welcome
to all former athletes of the club, their family and friends to this function.
Over 400 athletes have worn the club colours over the past 35 years and we look
forward to a large attendance on the night. It offers a once-off opportunity for all former athletes
to come together and reminisce and share memories of happy times past.
We have collected some old photographs and press cuttings which are currently
posted on our Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/people/Castlegar-Ac/100000948143526.
If you have any photographs or press cuttings, we would like to have them for our display board
on the night. Everything will be cared for and returned to you.
Music will be provided by “Face Value”, a very popular local band. We have also
invited a very well known Irish Olympic athlete, to be a guest of honour for the night.
Tickets for the function cost €35 and are available from any member of the
committee, listed below. Cheques should be made payable to Castlegar Athletic Club. The hotel
has placed an over all limit on the numbers it can cater for.
So to avoid disappointment it is important to place your order for tickets before Friday the 3rd of September 2010. Overnight
accommodation for those travelling will be available at the Clayton Hotel (091-721900 and
reference Castlegar Athletic Club) at a special rate of €99.00 per double/twin room bed and
