As we are heading back into September, could we please ask managers to nominate a mentor or parent to do a 1-2 line report and final scores on matches so we can include them in Club Notes each week, also if any of your players have represented the county could you please also keep us informed of this, not only do our members enjoy reading of our successes, so do all our friends abroad. Any information about upcoming matches would be welcome too, text if to 086-2909022. We know have a following of 466 on Twitter, everything that is twitted is also put on our facebook page and our website. Please help keep us all informed.


AFL 5 continued an unbeaten run in the Conlon Cup to win the final on home soil with a great performance against Ballyboden St Endas. The final score 1-10 to 0-09 and well deserved silver ware for the fitter and hungrier junior 1 side. Great performances all over the field from the Raheny lads with two exceptional saves from Niall Russell in goals. Well done to the AFL5 team who look forward to a championship semi final and their remaining must win league games.

On Friday last AFL5 held a table quiz fundraiser for their team. A great turn out made it a very successful and enjoyable night for all. Special thanks to all those who sponsored and donated prizes for the raffle. Thanks also to Danny Gaffney and others who did great work organising the night. Congrats to the winning team of brain boxes including Mick O'Keefe, Dave McGrath and Brian Curtis.

Congratulations to the U11 hurlers winning out their Camaint in Parnell park on Saturday and bringing home the cup for Raheny.

We had a convincing win in the semis against Fingallians 6-1 to 1 point. Diving saves from Karl Kavanagh kept Fingallians almost scoreless. For raheny scores came from all angles - Josh Lynch, Luke Moreau, Thomas Hurley, Sean Lumley and Liam Dunne. Daniel Kane and Jack Maguire were unlucky not to convert some other chances. So then to the finals where Raheny were the better hurlers but had tough competition in Crumlin.

Crumlins star goalie turned attack into defense in seconds and our defense Enda Owens, Adam Codd, mark Murphy, Anthony house and Eoin Connors had to work hard to keep Crumlin from scoring. Thomas Hurley scored our first point & then with great skill Sean Lumley finally beat their great goalie & scored a goal. Crumlin came back with a point but with great composure Luke Moreau scored a super point over the bar having received the perfect pass from Liam Dunnes indirect free. Points are scored at both ends. All looked well with 5 mins to go ahead 1-3 to 2 points Robert House and Eoin Bridgeman both almost scored and then Shock!. A fantastic goal is scored from a free by Crumlin and they are making one last grasp to score again but great Raheny defense clears the ball and the whistle blows RAHENY 1-3 V 1-2 CRUMLIN. Nail biting finish.

The Team and supporters had great celebrations both at the presentation in Parnell park and back at the club. WELL DONE LADS, this is a team to watch.
