Health and Well Being: As part of our Health and Well Being initiative Aughawillan GAA wish to offer EVERYONE in the community an opportunity to be tested for Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS). AMS provide a comprehensive, on-site Doctor-led Cardiac Screening service to clubs, schools & companies nationwide.
