U14B's won Shield final beating Clontarf 4-10 to 4-08 in an exciting game played in sunshine on Saturday. The game looked like it was over at half time as Raheny had a very commanding lead thanks to some great team play, with the likes of Andrew MCCann, Sean Barrett, Jordan Manning, Liam O'Shea and Kevin Doyle outstanding. Clontarf came at Raheny in the 2nd half and with minutes to go, the gap was reduced to a kick of the ball, however great work from Brian Rodgers in goal and the hard working Raheny midfield partnership of Michael Grenham and Ciaran Sutton, kept Raheny in the game. Late points from Lennie Tobin and Luke Kennedy got the Raheny lads across the line. A great performance from both team, in a thoroughly enjoyable and sporting game.

U14A's won the Championship Final beating Ballymun Kickams 4-18 to 3-06. Raheny choose to play against the wind in the 1st half. The Raheny boys got out of the block very fast and it was obvious to the large crowd, that both teams were really up for this game. With John Sullivan's running and passing causing problems for the Ballymun defence, the scoring was left to the likes of Kevin Reid's 1-1 and Gavin Ivory's 1-2, topped up with 3 points from Eoin Gillen and Daniel Byrne. With Andu O'Brien and Eoin Archibald working ahrd for Ballymun, they got 2 goals on the break to stay in touch. Raheny went in at h/t 5 points up, 2-07 to 2-02 Playing with the wind after the break, Raheny produced some fanatastic football and soon took a commanding lead, which they never surrendered. With John Sullivan, Simon Deighnan, Eoin Gillen, Shane Homan and Liam O'Dywer all getting onto the scoreboard. Man of the Match award went to Raheny's Rutherson Real for an outstanding game at full back.
