áthas is a noun - as with many such expressions of emotional or physical state, we say that the emotion or experience (a noun) is on us - brón, ocras, tart, etc.
áthasach is an adjective - it is not normally used as a predicative adjective ("I am happy"), but only as an attributive adjective: lá áthásach a bhí ann - "it was a happy/joyful day"
