The 2nd year of Craobh Chiaráin's Good Friday Hurling tournament took place over the weekend. This tournament is a great initiative by Craobh Chiaráin with teams playing for trophies named in honour of past members.

In the under 8 section Raheny, Craobh Chiaráin and Na Fianna faced off in a round robin series of matches.

In the 1st pair of matches, our lads put in great efforts to win both matches against Craobh Chiaráin. Daniel Broderick was on target several times in one of the games, while in the other game Karl English and Ruairi Kelly got the winning scores.

Our next encounters were against a very strong Na Fianna outfit. Na Fianna were too strong in one of the games winning 5-0, giving the boys a lesson in taking chances.

However in the second match our lads led by Eoghan Cullen and Conor Ahearne  defended like heroes to go in at half time with no score on the board. In the 2nd half we got a couple of quick goals and held off Na Fianna's comeback to win 2-1.

Well done to all 17 players who played their part for Raheny in this years competition. The tournament was decided on score difference and for the 2nd year running our boys lifted the winners trophy. Keep up the good work lads you are all improving by the week.

A big thank you to Phil Cullen and Craobh Chiaráin for our invitation to play again this year.

Hope to be back next year!
