Club Notes October 15th 2012

On Sunday morning, Raheny supporters made there way out to the Phoenix Park to cheer on Senior 4 Camogie in the Championship against St.Oliver Plunketts/Eoghan Rua in the Pheonix Park. Raheny was slow to start and at Half time they were down with a score line of 0-2 to 0-5. It all changed in the second half the girls played their hearts out. Ending with a score of 2-7 to 0-7. It would be impossible to choose a Player of the Match as everyone, including subs gave their all. Special mention to Eadaoin Mulcahy who last won this title way back in 1994. Well done to Mentors Eugene Larmon, Niall Dunne and Enda Mulcahy.
It was also fantastic to see a full sideline of supporters.

To celebrate 21 years of AIB’s sponsorship of the GAA Club Championships, we are launching a competition for GAA clubs and communities around Ireland to win a "GAA Skills Day" in their club with AIB's GAA Stars (Colm Cooper, Brendan Cummins, Michael Walsh & Colm O'Neill).
To enter the competition fans should log on to the AIB GAA facebook page www.facebook/clubisfamily and vote for their club I would encourage all staff to promote this competition in your community amongst your customers, friends and GAA supporters.
The Championships offer AIB the opportunity to connect and to communicate with all GAA clubs in Ireland, to strengthen our community brand. Our GAA website acts as a central hub for our programme activities and offers GAA enthusiasts around the country the opportunity to access the most up-to-date GAA club news, fixtures, results and much more.

The 2001 CFF once again fielded teams on both Saturday and Sunday this weekend. On Saturday the girls were beaten in football by a very strong Naomh Barrog team with Kate McHugh, Aoife O'Donovan and Helen Brayden amongst the scorers.

On Sunday the Camogie teams travelled up to the mighty St Vincents and gave two brilliant performances. Nicole Crowley, Ciara Storey and Niamh McCormack were the pick of Eamonns team while the highlight of this game was a brilliant catch by Eilish McGloin. Molly Dempsey, Lauran Robinson and Jessica McGarry played well in what was a great team performance on Geoffreys team.

U11 Raheny 6-2 v 3-5 St Maurs
Well done to U11 hurlers finishing top of their league. At half time Raheny were behind by 4 points but super free taking and tireless battling Raheny denied St Maurs the title.

Minor footballers scored a last gasp goal to draw with St Peters.

Rounding off their league campaign in style Raheny U14 footballers made it twelve wins from fourteen games. This result sees the U14 footballers finishing the Division 3 League in joint first place. From the start Raheny displayed a high work rate and, with a score tally in the first half of a goal and six points, got off to a strong start. However, one area causing concern for Raheny management was in the full back line which, over the course of the first half, appeared to be caught napping. A key consequence of the uncharacteristic lack of focus in this area was that Raheny conceded two relatively soft goals in the first half. Thus, whereas they could have held Whitehall scoreless up to that point, the reality was that, at the break, Raheny were grasping the lead by the precarious margin of only 3 points. This necessitated a dose of tough love at the half time team talk and, following a frank overview of where improvements were required, Raheny proceeded to stamp their authority on the game as the second half unfolded. Over the course of the half Whitehall managed only 4 points (only 1 of which was from play) and a single goal. However, with points being scored by no less than eight individuals and goals from Aran Kelly (2) and Conor Duffy (1) Raheny ultimately sealed victory by the comfortably margin of 13 points (Raheny 4-14, Whitehall 3-4). Special mention goes to Aran Kelly (for his hat-trick), Andy Carroll, Shane Leahy and Darragh Keogh (for their inspiring work rate) and Oisin Kelly (who, despite sporting a broken finger, insisted on playing his traditional role in centre half-back). The U14 footballers now enjoy home advantage for their semi-final contest vs. Round Towers (Clondalkin) which is fixed for Saturday 3rd November 2012 at 15:00. At stake is a place in the Division 3 final and promotion to Division 2!
