Ladies and Gentlemen,

Raheny GAA Adult Camogie section are proud to introduce the first social event on the parish calender.
After a successful 'Mr and Mrs' fundraiser by the Ladies Footballers last year, the Camogie team realised the harsh reality that we don't have any Mr's. To remedy our relationship woes in time for Valentines Day and to raise much needed funds for the Camogie section, we give you:

With a number of eligible bachelors lined up to try and win the hearts of our Camogs, this event promises to be one to remember. Our MC's for this romantic night will be none other than aspiring hurler/vaper Fergal Smyth alongside Camog Trish Grehan (too 'untouchable' to actually partake).

Tickets are now on sale for €10. Follow the link below to the Raheny GAA Club Shop to get yours before they sell out:

And remember, NO LIKEY? NO LIGHTY!

First 30 people who buy tickets on line ("Club Shop" Click and collect) Will receive a glass of prosecco on the night.


Introducing 4 of Raheny Camogies finest: Niamh, Liz, Ciara and Aoife. 
All four well known for their scoring abilities, some on the pitch, some off the pitch.. but our sources tell us, one of these girls has attempted to shift 80% of the club male members, one has succeeded, one has never been kissed and one actually has a boyfriend but is still keen to get up on stage on Feb 10th.
