The U12 Ladies Team are organising a 'Dip for Blossom'.  Together with parents, family and friends (and some special guests!!), yes you got it, the team are dipping into the sea at Dollymount Strand (wooden bridge end) @ 12 noon on Tuesday 27th December. 
Last year we had great support from players, parents, family, friends of our team (and club), and we are looking for your support again !!!  Please come join us and support this fantastic charity.

After the Dip, we are hoping that all families will return to the GAA Club for something to warm you up (and for some live music).  

This is the second year that the Dip for Blossom will be taking place and we are aiming for at least 200 people to participate - we intend to build on this in the years to come with members of Raheny GAA Club playing a pivotal role. 

This promises to be a great day for family and friends to get together so please support Blossom Ireland & Raheny GAA.
