Feile 2017

Huge congratulations to our U14 Raheny B on winning Div10 Feile Final and also on making history playing in Tallaght Staduim, James Galvin scored the first point ever in the Stadium and Gav Browne got the first GAA goal. Both Raheny men !. Raheny A footballers didnt get out of their group, a lot of tough matches, but they did the club proud and played hard.  Thank you to all the supporters and to all who helped catering the Feile.

Feile Girls Report

U14 Ladies Football Feile

The U14 Ladies Football Feile took place over the weekend of the 1st /2nd April and we were delighted when the girls came second in their group beating Parnells and Fingal Ravens in two very exciting games. As runners up in the group we were off to Man O’ War to play Man O’ War.
With the effort put into getting out of the group and then traveling we couldn’t get past Man O’ War in the semi-final. Fantastic effort on the day from the whole squad including the girls who joined us from the U13’s.
We would like to sincerely thank all the parents and supporters who came out to Naomh Mearnog and Man O’ War to cheer on the girls, and a special word of thanks to Ronnie Norton who took brilliant photos of the squad.
