Athlone Drug Awareness Group celebrated their 21 year anniversary on 22nd November 2017. It was a great success. Along with guest speaker Irish Rugby star Robbie Henshaw, other highlights included the motivational talks from Carla McManus of Our Ladys Bower and Sean Conway of Athlone Community College.

Frankie Keena, Chairman of ADAG added ‘I would like to thank all who helped out with ADAG over the last 21 years. The voluntary support from its members and financial support from the business sectors and wider community is really appreciated. It was fantastic to have Robbie Henshaw in attendance, he is a genuine person and an excellent role model for everyone. The ongoing support from the schools is commendable and it was fantastic to see them represented at the event. The group has a great working relationship with the Gardai, HSE addiction services and Midlands Regional Drug and Alcohol Task Force’
