To cap off a historic week for the club we received a phone call from Michael O'Grady of Friends of Dublin Hurling on Saturday morning that they were awarding the 2012 Dublin Adult Club of the Year to Raheny.
This is a real honour for the club and it is acknowledgement/recognition of what we have been attempting to to do over the years in the club.
We will be presented with the award in the Red Cow Hotel at Friends of Dublin Awards Dinner Dance on November 16th. Let's try and get a crowd out there and show our appreciation . The cost of a seat is 30 euros. Please contact me if interested in attending.
