Last weekend was a busy one again for the club, thanks again to Ronan Leech for solving our pitch problems and a big thank you to Craogh Chiarain who allowed us the use of Pitch 6 for Sunday morning at very short notice.

AFL2 continued their impressive start to the season with a well deserved 0.19Pts to 1.07 over Fingallians in St Anne's Park on saturday. Midfielders Ciaran Murphy and Paddy Reid dominating, upfront some fantastic point scoring from all the forwards including 6 points from Eoin Delaney and 5 points from Gavin Ivory, and the defence all well on top. Paddy O Higgins made his Club Senior Football Debut. Team has won both league games to date.

AFL5 Raheny 5-13 v Na Fianna 3-7. With Donal Ryan, Simon Deignan, Ciaran Heapes and the whole team outstanding on the day.

AFL8 Raheny 2-09 Lucan 1-06. Two taken goals from Eoin Mullen and Brendan Whyte were the difference in a very tight game. Raheny defended well through out and took our chances well with big performances from Matt Bennett, the three Fitzsimons brothers and Stephen O Brien.

AFL10 Raheny 1-6 Naomh Barrog 2-4. Junior c footballers suffered defeat by the narrowest of margins in this local league derby game -. Perhaps a better use of available possession opportunities at various stages of the game would have resulted in a more favourable outcome. Impressive performances from, in particular, Gareth Manley; Brian Malone; Brian Talty; Jack Dempsey; Seanie Carr and Philip Kane.

U15 Div 1 v Na Fianna. An injury stricken Raheny took to the field against division toppers Na Fianna and suffered as a result. Na Fianna were hungrier and sharper to the breaking ball. Some positives can be taken from the game. Na Fianna 5-14 v Raheny 1-8.

U14 Footballers had a walk over against St Monica's which places them very nicely on the league tables.

Minor Hurlers Raheny 1-09 Setanta 1-10. Full match report on Hurling Section.

U12 Hurling Team got their campaign off to a winning start against St.Jude's on Sat, winning a very tight match 5-01 to 4-02. Raheny started slowly and were 1 -02 down before they got their first score. Raheny were four points up at half time but a very determined St. Jude's got back into the match in the second half with two quick goals. Raheny fought hard all the way through the game and were one point down with five minutes to go. A late goal from Liam Dunne sealed the victory but either side could have come away with the win. The lads showed great heart throughout the game to come back on 2 occasions to win at the death. The whole team fought hard but there were also some great individual performances particularly from Sean Farrelly and Adam McCormack. Liam Dunne also contributed three vital Goals.
While it was great to get the season off to a winning start there is a lot of hard work to be done on the training ground to maintain the progress the lads have made from last season.
Maith sibh, leann leis an obair mhaith.

Senior Camogie got off to a bad start conceding 4 goals in the first half giving ourselves a mountain to climb. The girls raised their game in the second half and had majority of possession and scoring opportunities but could only pull the score back to a final score of 5-4 to 1-8 against us. Notable performances were from Lorna Twohig (0-4 points) and Jacqueline Elebert (Defence).
Next match is in 3 weeks time away to Ballyboden St Endas.

U15 Camogie team continues their good form with a comprehensive win over Bray Emmets in St Anne's Park on Sunday. Next game is away to St Johns Ballinteer on 25th March. Raheny 8-2 Bray Emmets 1-4. Abbey Connelly had a great game in defence and Rebecca Barrett was on fire throughout the game. We wish Sadbh a speedy recovery with her arm injury.

Camogie/Hurling Mentors with some of our players took a trip to Tipp to visit our pal Paudie Butler
We had a huge response to the request for mentors and their families to take a day out of their busy schedules to visit Paudi Butler in his home town of Drom an Inch. We had -25 adults/mentors and 28 children/willing volunteers with ages ranging from U8's to U14's took to the coach on Saturday morning at 10:30 ('ish). We also had 3 car loads driving down to meet us down there bringing the total to 35 children and 25 adults. A brilliant hurling demonstration took place on the huge hurling wall where the time just flew by. The outcomes from the session will mean that the mentors will now be taking a saw to their own hurls and making them 20 inches long and never shall there be a 36 inch hurl brought to a juvenile training session. A huge rethink in how we should be training the children has taken place over the last 12 months where the children will be taught to hurl from the hand rather than from the ground up.

Check out tomorrow's edition of the Northside People for an article on Raheny GAA and more on the mini leagues.

D'imir Ráth Éanna in aghaidh Ballyboden St Enda's ar lá deas ar páirc 12. Thosaigh Ballyboden go han láidir le imreoraí maithe agus bhí Ráth Éanna faoi brú an luath sa cluiche. Ag leath-áma níor raibh aon rud idir na dhá fhoireann fíu le an taithí a bhí ag Ballyboden ag an aois-ghrúpa seo. Thosaigh an dara leath agus bhí sé fós daighean idir na dhá fhoireann, mar gheall ar an cinneadh a bhí ag Ráth Éanna.Mar shample Ciara Storey a chaith í féin isteach agus rinne sí blocáil iontach. Ghoirtigh sí í féin ag deánamh é. Tar éis cupla ionadaí agus athrú áiteanna ar an páirc taispeann taithí Ballyboden. Sa deireadh ciall Ráth Éanna an cluiche, ach níor stop Ráth Éanna ag deánamh iarracht. Ag deireadh an cluiche dúradh leo fíuan gur cialladar rinne gach duine an iarracht tríd an cluiche ar fad. Sin gach rud a bhfuil Báineastóir in ann cuir céist le haghaidh. Bhí muid an bróduil don fhoireann ar fad. Mo bhuíochas don fhoireann ar fad!!!!!!!!!
