Raheny GAA U7s Boys..The Trip to Tallaght

Bright and early on a sunny Saturday morning the U7s Boys made the trip across to St.Marks GAA Tallaght, club of our former GPO David "Dotsy" O'Callaghan. As is always the case news has traveled fast of the hurling skills which our boys have fine tuned over the last number of years. We fielded three hurling teams and the boys played three matches of 15 minutes each. The boys played great hurling attacking and defending with great gusto. St. Marks were great competitors and Dotsy's influence on their striking, blocking, passing etc was there to see. All the players had great fun in the sunny weather and deserved the water and popcorn at the end. We look forward to welcoming St. Marks to Raheny in the near future as they were great hosts.
