Minor Hurlers

Our minors hurlers won the last game of the league today (Sunday 15th July) against Kevins 2-14 to 3-06. Waterlogged St.Annes meant we had to play in Dolphins Park. The ball was thrown in at 12.30. There was a noticeable difference in our play today. The lads were fitter and the first touch was sharper. We ended the first half one point down 1-03 to 0-5. With superb performances from Liam O’Shea (captain), Lenny Tobin, Danny Ried, Robert Diffney, Eoghan Smith and Aidan Gaughan we scored 2-09 in the second half. Eoghan Smith (Dublin minor hurler) was mindful of picking up an injury so played a supporting role. Playing in the supporting role didn’t stop him scoring a cracker of a goal and some beautiful points. Liamo’s engine was fired up and he didn’t stop running, battling, clever passing and link up play earned him the man-of-the-match performance. James Carroll played well in goal. Sean in corner back stopped a few goal scoring runs and is one of our key defenders. We were missing our full back Luke Bennett (through sickness) and Aidan Gaughan filled the role with ease. Thanks to David Cleary, Declan Flemming & Mark Bosnet from the u16s – without whom we wouldn’t of had a team – these lads are gradually improving and are now firmly part of the squad. Frances Mullan, Conor Flaherty and Aido came back from a three week cursa Gaeilge in Arainn Mhoir (An Gaeltacht) agus tá sé iontach chun iad a fheiceáil ar ais. A special mention to Rahenys’ No.1 supporter, Christy O’Connell who cycled out to Dolphins Park – maith an fearr Christy.

AFL10 - All round not the most pleasant of outings. Victory would have compensated for exposure to an evening of persistant rain and being stuck in crawling Paul Simon traffic all the way across to Islandbridge.  But, alas, it was not to be. Up to half time we could blame ourselves. Despite an abundance of possession Raheny failed on a number of occasions to take advangtage in very scorable positions.  However, the team worked hard and thanks to 2points from Rob 'O Neill,  and one each from Seanie Carr and Liam 'Shea found themselves only one point behind at half time. The second half started promising enough,  and when David Heffernan took advantage of a well placed pass from Cian Daly to strike the ball nicely into the net to put Raheny 2 points up, things were looking up. However, failure to push ahead at this point allowed Finbars to gradually pile on the pressure and they ended up comfortable winners.

Peile Abu had to be moved to Dollymount Beach as there was less water on the strand then there is in the Park... Lads turned up and had a good session as always and thankfully not a pair of Speedos in sight.
