The Raheny Allstars

The Raheny All Stars established in September 2016 at Raheny GAA Club. This very special initiative was set-up for children with special needs aged 9yrs -12yrs. 

Our main objective was to include children that could not take part in a typical team game, assisting them with ball skills, exercise and of course, fun and enjoyment in a safe environment. Another important goal for us was to promote the ethos of inclusion in the community and the club. 

We currently have fifteen children that turn up every Friday and play on the club Astro from 5pm – 5.45pm. They show up each week with a great attitude and full of enthusiasm. The children need 1:1 or 1:2 support and all of this is carried out with a fantastic group of coaches.  We have 5 adult coaches and 17 juvenile coaches. 

Our group is child centered with emphasis on keeping our children and young people safe when they come to our sessions. All our coaches adhere to best practice and are all Garda vetted have received Child Protection training and are working towards completing Disability Inclusion training.
