Club shop is now open on Thursday evening 8-9 but will be CLOSED this saturday due to Bank Holiday.

Ogra is also NOT on due to Bank Holiday.

Congratulations to our Brian Fenton
and the Dublin Senior Footballers on a fantastic win over Cork on Sunday.

Thank you to Brian Fenton who came down to wish our Feile girls well as the two teams went their separate ways to the competitions. We would like to thank Man'o War and Westmanstown for being excellent hosts to our girls.
In the girls words.....

Team A
We said our goodbyes and good lucks to our B team and headed off to man'o war for our football feile, we knew it wasnt gonna be easy as the weather was not looking good. We played our first match in the rain and cold and failed to clock up a score, then it was straight in to the changing rooms to get warmed up and oooh was it cold. The food came out and some hot drinks and a lot of laughs, thats a great thing about our two teams is that win or lose we have a great laugh and enjoy it all. It is nicer if we win though. Our second match was a little better in that we clock up a few scores and our third game resulted in a loss as well and that meant we were finished in the competition but that didnt matter, we enjoyed playing and we gave it our all. We will remember having fun and getting seriously wet and cold when we think of the Dublin Feile 2015. Oh and the new gear we got too, now to concentrate on the league (well thats what the mentors want to here). Thank you to all the mums and dads who supported us and to Helens mam for the tent to keep us dry.

Team B

The day started with both teams meeting at the clubhouse at 9 o clock for pictures and good lucks.
Then we went our separate ways, one to Man O War and another to Westmanstown. When we arrived we were shown where everything was and we were offered hearty breakfast following this we were taken to our 5 five star dressing rooms and warmed up in the heated training warm up room. Due to the bad weather it was decided to close the roof of the stadium for our first game. In that game we played St. Mary's Saggart and with a fine squad performance we won by 4-3 to 1-1. The schedule had us play straight away against strong Naomh Olafs and despite a great second half performance we lost 5-0 to 1-8. At this point we were turned to a 5 star restaurant for our steak dinner followed by lashings of ice cream. Having completed our meal we returned to the pitch to face host club Westmenstown Gaels. Again this was a closely fought battle,the team losing narrowly again by 1-2 to 0-3. Special thanks to the the four u12 Moya,Isabel,Ellen and Francesca. And well done everyone who played and supported.

U12 FL Division 2 Naomh Olaf 0-5 Raheny 4-7
Raheny turned in an impressive display away to Naomh Olaf last Saturday. This was the boy’s first game in Division 2 and the pressure was on to get a good start. Playing with the aid of a strong breeze in the first half Raheny opened the scoring with a goal from Andrew Geoghegan. Olafs replied with a point but within a minute, the impressive Geoghegan netted again to lead after 10 minutes, 2-0 - 0-1. Raheny dominated the remainder of the half. Conor Baldwin controlled midfield scoring one of the points of the day. Adam McAweeney tormented the Olaf defence and scored a couple of outstanding points to give Raheny a 2-5 - 0-2 lead at half time. Against the wind, Raheny started well again. An early goal from Baldwin should have set Raheny on their way to a comfortable victory but credit to Olafs, they got to grips with the game and began to pile on the pressure. Raheny’s defence however stood up to the task. Colm Grogan and James Gleeson won plenty of possession along with Charlie McHugh and Ruari Walsh. Brian Dunne put in another superb performance with great fielding and clever distribution. Goal keeper Karl Cregan put in a solid performance in goal. The hard working Conal Devitt scored a goal at a time when a score was needed to leave the last minutes of the game comfortable for the boys from the parish.
Raheny: Karl Cregan, Colm Grogan, Cian Mitchell, Calum Grehan, Brian Dunne, Charlie McHugh, James Gleeson, Conor Baldwin, Ruari Walsh, Conal Devitt, Adam McAweeney, Jacob McConnell, Aaron Byrne, Daniel Hickey, Sam Whelan.

Well done to our Hurlers who clocked up a win IHC Raheny 1-08 v 0-10 Erins Isle. Our Minor footballers had a brilliant performance on Sunday morning against Crokes. Raheny 3-09 v 1-08 Kilmacud.

Great win for our Junior B hurlers i
n the championship Raheny 5-8 v 1-7 Whitehall.

Our U8 girls had a bit of a journey on Saturday where 20 of them travelled out to Rush, it was their second football match of the year and they played their socks off. They showed some fantastic skills on the pitch, with lots of smiles all round. Keep up the good work girls! We are always looking for new players to join and no experience is necessary. Any girls born in 2007 or 2008 and would like to join this wonderful bunch of girls to play either camogie or football or both please contact PRO Alison 086-2909022 for more details.
