Athlone IT President To Discuss Next Step After Community Games Departure

Written 3 years ago by Newsroom


The President of Athlone IT says he’ll be discussing with colleagues later today their next step after the Community Games decided not to return next year.

The Community Games President says the decision was made after AIT signalled their intention to change to a strictly commercial arrangement.

AIT refutes that claim, and have expressed they’re disappointment that the Games will move elsewhere for the first time since 2008.

Professor Ciaran O’Cathain says he’s surprised by the decision, and would be happy to meet with the Community Games board.
