Athea

Athea is a village in west Co Limerick. Athea is situated on the river Galey and the crossroads of the R523 (Reens - Listowel) and R524 (Glin - Abbeyfeale) regional roads. It is a 3km east of the Limerick/Kerry border in the rolling hills of west Limerick and is one of the highest settlements in the county. Its highest point is in the Parkanna townland where, at 220m above sea level, surrounding towns and counties can be seen. The river Galey is a tributary to the larger River Cashen. There are two bridges across the river - the R523/R524 intersection bridge just east of the village and Barry's Bridge, 2 km northwest of the village. Local amenities include a church, primary school, two medical clinics, shops, pubs, two beauty salons, a pharmacy and post office and the Con Colbert Memorial Hall, which hosts a range of events in its status as a community centre. A Limerick-Tralee bus service operates via Athea every Wednesday. There are many local Hackney services available especially at weekends.
