Hard luck to our U13 Ladies football team who narrowly lost their first Shield Final on Saturday to St Peregrines 7-08 v 8-07 it was a nail biting game right to the bitter end.  A special word of thanks to all the parents, grandparents, friends and supporters who came along on the day to support the girls and to Siobhan Woods who spoke to the girls beforehand. The team are also competing in their first Div 3 Camogie Shield final against Round Tower (Clondalkin) on Sunday 23rd October.

Congratulations to our U15a ladies footballers team who won their shield final on Saturday. 

Hard luck to our U15b ladies who were runners up in their championship final on Saturday.

Under 15 hurlers take Division 2 title.

Raheny 4:14

Faughs 0:4

If Carlsberg did farewell matches this could have been it as the Under 15 manager of 8 years Áine Williams bowed out in style. Her input over the years reflected on the field of play on Sunday morning. Thanks Aine and best of luck with the studies from all the parents and your assistant mentors.'

An outstanding first half display against a gale force wind laid the foundation for a comprehensive win for our Under 15 hurlers in Tymon north on Sunday morning to be crowned Dublin Under 15 Division 2 league champs.  Goals from Liam Dunne (1:4) and Tom Geary (2:2) and a man of the match performance from the particularly mobile and astute centre back Rob McGuirk ensured a hard fought half time score of 2:4 to 0:2 would be unassailable for the hosts facing the second half wind.  And so it was as Raheny ran out comfortable winners. 

Adam Codd kept a clear sheet in goal well minded by Josh Lynch, Sean Lumley, Tom O Donnell and Mathew Lodge.  The centre back line was like a brick wall allowing nothing past with Leon Coakley, Darragh O Grady and Sean Ryan winning all the rooks on the half back line.  As ever Mark Muphy (0:1) and Eoin Bridgeman at midfield gave master classes in the art of work rate and never allowed the Faughs midfield to settle for the entire 60 minutes.  Up front a hard working Tadhg O Donnell, Anthony House, Thomas Moriarty did well while Ben Roberts (0:1) and Thomas Hurley (1:2) struck some lovely scores including an outrageous point from the sideline from Enda Owens (0:3).  Cheer of the match went out for a lovely bit of team work that ended in a great point by Luke Moreau.  Well done also to Joe Crimmins, Robert House, Luke Fox, Jamie Herbert and Daniel Kane, who played so well during the long league campaign and unfortunately didn’t get a run out on Sunday morning

Our Intermediate Hurlers were knocked out of the championship by St Judes in Blakestown on Saturday after a hard fought game by just one point.

Scoil Reachrann played their first ever camogie match and walked away with a win, Maith sibh Cailini. They had 7 girls from Raheny which included 2 sets of sisters...can you spot them??

Well done to one of our Feeder school St Brigid's boys who are through  to the football Final in Croke Park.
