A few pieces from last week to begin with

Our Raheny Feile Finalist
Raheny U14b team took part in Feile Div.4 in Round Towers, Clondalkin where it rained incessantly for the entire day. They got off to a flying start against Maurs but then lost their next 3 matches by one score in each match. They can hold their heads up high as 2013 League & Championship winners. These are certainly glory days for Raheny Camogie as we embark on the next chapter with our U14a team at National Feile in June.

U14b panel: Dearbhla O'Gorman, Aoife Lawlor, Sophie Beady, Aisling Bell, Lucy McHugh, Laura Cox, Sinead Doherty, Ciara Gallagher, Keelin Lambert, Stephanie Russell, Molly Gaffey, Niamh McCormick, Isobel McConnell, Aifric O'Connor, Aoife Baldwin, Catriona Marsh, Kate McHugh Eilish McGloin

U10s Boys
After the short Easter break it was back to hurling action at our home away from home venue at Alfie Byrne Road against Clontarf
A mixed bag of results saw 1 emphatic win, a heavy loss and a 1 point loss
Our white team proved much too strong for their opponents with excellent performances from Aaron fitzsimons, Ciaran Hartnett, Andrew o'Shaughnessy and James O'connell.
The orange team came up against a much stronger outfit and were unfortunately no match for Clontarf. However there were string battling performances from Sean Dowd, Cormac Lenehan and Scott Dennis.
The green team were involved in the proverbial game of two halves. Heavily down at half time a superb second half rally saw them lose by just 1 point. Man of the match for Raheny was Ruairi Kelly. Other strong performances came from Sean Reilly and Eoghan Cullen.

U9 Boys

Under 9 Boys Hurling report

The U9 boys team had an away hurling fixture in Malahide on Saturday 26th April vs St Sylvestors. The 3 teams were evenly matched with Raheny winning one, drawing one and narrowly losing one. The Green Team had the narrowest of victories 3-1 to 2-1 in a very hard fought match. Sylvestors shaded possession in the first half with both sides having to contend with a hard slog of ground hurling in long grass. Raheny weren't found wanting though and threw their bodies into every ruck with great strength and bravery. Thanks to an outstanding point from the hand by John McNally Raheny went in at the break with a narrow lead. The second half was an extremely close and exciting game with neither team prepared to back down. With David Adams, Mark Farrelly and Conor Nugent winning the midfield battle Raheny ensured the game was played in the opponents half. When Sylvestors did manage to break out they couldn't get past Alex Lynch and Michael Quinn in our defence. Aaron Miller and Jamie Kearns seemed to win every tackle and challenge and sent a steady stream of ball back into the forward line, where Niall Cox caught the eye with some excellent attacking play. In the end it was Shay Keogh who was the hero of the day with two expertly taken goals to seal a very hard fought win.
The Orange team performed heroically and battled right to the end in a narrow defeat. All the boys can be proud of their work rate and tackling. Patrick Bishop won nearly tackle throughout the game. Ciaran Durnford also played very well and he set up Jack Kirby for a great goal with a fantastic pass along the ground.
Our White team brave defended bravely during the first half of their match. The long grass made ground hurling very tough. Raheny fought back brilliantly in the second half to secure a well deserved draw. Persistent marking from our defenders and passing between the midfield and forwards throughout the second half paid dividends with a super score coming out of midfield at long range from Cathal Baldwin to tie up the match.


First big news was Siobhan Woods being named of Captain of the U21 Ladies Football team.

We have never had some many like of a picture on facebook, at the moment Siobhans has 150 and coming a very close 2nd is the Winning football feile team. Whichever picture gets the most likes on facebook between on and Friday will get pride of place on our notice board. Also when you are on facebook make sure you "like" our page.

Staying on the Theme of U21s, Dublin won the All Ireland Final with 4 of our players on the squad, Paddy O Higgins, Brian Fenton, Gavin Ivory and Rutherson Real.

Hard luck to Dublin Premier Camogie today who lost out to a determined Westmeath team.
Dublin were unlucky in the first half with two soft Westmeath goals. One was an unfortunate deflection of a Dublin hurley.
Westmeath hunted in packs throughout the game and their hunger was on full show.
Dublin started the second half six points down, battled hard and reduced the defect to three points.
Dublin let vital chances slip with eight wides in the second half (four from frees).
Second half substitute, Jacqueline Elebert played fantastic - maybe her impact would have been better suited from the start?
However well done to both Raheny players (Jacqueline and Ciara) in yet another final for Dublin.
Final score Westmeath 3-07, Dublin 1-05. Complacency looses matches, this should be the wake-up call to spur Dublin into action for the Championship.
Áth Cliath agus Rath Éanna Abú.

Well done to Aoife Stack who played mid-field for Dublin U16s in the Leinster final last weekend.


Congratulations to Feile A Team who won the Division 2 Football final today in Parnell Park. All Weekend the lads never gave up, after losing the first game against St Maurs there was no room for error and they grew with every game. Self belief was the key to this victory. All players deserve great credit. Thanks to all parents, Conor Lee, Maeve Keogh, Louise Shanley, Colin McMahon and Evan Comiskey and most of all the players who gave everything, they have and deserve this cup.
