Easter Camp for children aged 4-7yrs from -25th.-28th March.

First hurling match of new year for u9 hurlers on Saturday morning.

We lined out against Skerries Harps who were short of players on the day.
Despite this we enjoyed 3 good games with our white and orange teams faring best. For our green team Sean Reilly and Ciaran Harnett showed great tenacity battling away until the final whistle.
Many thanks to our 3 new referees who will have long careers on the whistle ahead of them if Saturdays displays are anything to go by.
Thanks to all our players, parents and mentors. Remember boys to practice your catching at home everyday for minimum of 15 minutes.
Gaelic football training Tuesday at Alfie Byrne 5.50, Wednesday on club astro at 6pm. New/returning players very welcome.

U16s Camogie
Erins Isle 1-4 Raheny 3-1. The U16s got their league off to a great start in Finglas on Saturday. Down by 3 points to no score at half time they charged back with a powerful second half display which resulted in a 3 point win.

U13 red team Nh Mearnog 3-5 Raheny 4-1. Terrific game, Raheny winning all the way through but Mearnogs got the last score in the final minute to win by a point.
U13 blue team Ballinteer St Johns 2-1 Raheny 0=0

20 goals for Under 7 hurlers in Gormanstown
Well done to the Raheny Under 7 hurlers who finished Gormanstown on a high with 20 goals over three matches on Sunday and a big clean sheet. What an improvement week after week these guys have made over the last 6 weeks. Watch out for these hurlers in Feile 2020 !
Raheny A had an emphatic 11 – 0 win over Skerries Harps. Matthew Grant was unstoppable with 4 goals. Cormac Baldwin got his usual hat trick while Finn Brassil got two great goals. Michael CVlarke and Ultan Fitzpatrick finished the job with a goal each. Joseph Doherty was great in mid field with some great big strikes keeping the forwards busy.
Raheny B finished up the Gormanston Tournament with an impressive 5 - 0 win over O’Dwyers of Balbriggan. Goals from Dan O’Grady, Rian Priseman (man of the match) and John Broderick were telling. Great midfield performances also, breaking up play and passing the sliotar forward, by Ciaran Kerrisk and Conor Watters. Overall, Raheny B won 3 of their 5 games and only lost two, in which they were unlucky not to get something out of the games, by one goal each time( 1-2, 0-1. All the lads are to be congratulated, great to see all the boys improving each week and more importantly, really enjoying their hurling. Well done lads.’
Raheny C completed their unbeaten run in Gormanston with a well deserved 4 - 0 win over Ratoath. The final game of the tournament saw Raheny take control of the match from the start and remain dominant throughout. Raheny's defence and goalkeeper were rarely threatened as the forwards kept the pressure on at the other end. The Raheny goals were scored by John Broderick and Rian Priseman but all of the Raheny C lads can be proud of their impressive performance during the tournament

Both Senior Camogie teams won challenge games v St.Brigids.

U14s lost to Good Counsel. Well done to Emily Rheinish,Aishling Mc Donald and Ciara Manley who featured with Dublin Minor camogie team v Offaly last Sat.
