Congratulations to our neighbours St Vincents on winning the Dublin County Championship, and the best of luck going forward.

Congrats to U16s on a fantastic effort in championship final losing by 2pts after extra time

U21 championship season has started and our footballers got a pass into the second round. Our Hurlers are up next Saturday at 2.30 at home v Setanta. Best of luck to both teams.

Our Seniors played their last game of the season against Parnells, a close game but Raheny came out on top with a score of 1.11 v 0.12. Well done lads and unfortunately it was their last season under the management of one of our club hero's, Ciaran Whelan, He announced he was stepping down directly after the match. Thank you for all your hard work with the lads and the club.

Minor Camogie.
The minor camogie team played their final championship game of the year last Sunday morning and for stalwarts and Aisling Gillen, Emily Rheinish, Ciara Manley and Alana Broderick  it was their last game in the minor grade. Unfortunately there is only a development minor camogie league in Dublin and as a result the under 18s are often forgotten about in some Clubs. Thankfully we are very lucky to have Roisín Gillen and it is to her credit that she didn't forget about these girls. A battling win against St Brigids was followed by losses to Na Fianna, Ballinteer St Johns and St Oliver Plunketts. The results on paper do not however tell the whole story.
This team has battled and scrapped with tremendous honesty and their skills have really developed and with a number of u16s in the side this improvement will continue.
The minor team is an essential developmental conduit in a club and hopefully this team will be continued next year and it will help these girls fulfil their obvious potential by playing within their age.
Our u16s make the trip southside to play Kilmacud Crokes on Saturday next with several minors on board. The best of luck girls.
The minor squad now turn their attention to Carlingford Advenure centre for some fun in the muck. No bother to them.

U12 Camogie and Football
U12s represent the parish in style.Our under 12  team brought the curtain down on their 2013season in fantastic style last Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday St Anne's was the venue for our blitz with St Jude's, Skerries Harps and St Vincents whilst Whitehall Colmcille hosted Ourselves,Faughs and Lucan. Our girls emerged victorious in all our contests. In both venues we were delighted to receive complimentary remarks from our opponent mentors and parents alike about our children's level of skill and sportsmanship. This is encouraging and worthy praise.
We wrapped up our football campaign with a convincing victory against Naomh Mearnog on a chilly Sunday afternoon in St Anne's.
2013 was another great year and we can look back on 40 u12 camogie matches and 20 under 12 football games and over 66 training sessions. Some of our girls have supported our under 14 footballers and even helping them to a Feile Final. Some girls have played on our league and championship winning under 13 A and B teams and along with this a number of our girls had a fantastic adventure in the Cumann na Bunscoil competition and they played in Croke Park.We had a  Trip to Harps in Laois and Moyne Templetuohy in Tipperary and on our way home we even cheered the Dubs as they beat the Kilkenny Cats on a warm and sunny Saturday evening in June. The great Paudie Butler visited us in February and again in October and he continues to inspire and coach us as parents and coaches.
Linda Hogan continued our education when she spoke to us about a healthy diet and nutrition and hydration.
As a group ,children,coaches/parents we have learned a lot but we know that we have a lot more to learn.
The commitment within our group from parents coaches and children is amazing and we thank our parents  for their trust and support and we can all be very proud of our daughters. We also thank our club Committee and Staff for their support and in particular Greg Brough and Ronan Leech deserve a special mention for their help throughout  the   year.
2014 will bring new challenges and we look forward to the year ahead.
Our children inspire us to be the best coaches we can be and we will continue to upskill as coaches during the
winter months and the 2001/2002 group will emerge i  n the spring and they will be raring to go.
They deserve the best so we had better be ready.
