Raheny GAA All Stars and Raheny Golf Society
Hi all, (Stuart Baldwin)
As you may know, a portion of the golf entry fees was set aside this year from our Friday evening golf outings to put towards something worthwhile in the GAA club.

I'm delighted to say that we have been able to donate the 570 euro raised to the Raheny GAA All Stars team. This group is the special needs football team who take part in football training on the club astro every Friday with the help of volunteer coaches from the club. The money is being used to get Raheny jerseys and t-shirts for the children and coaches from the club shop and equipment.

Well done to you all for contributing and Maria was delighted to get the support for her new initiative in the club.

See below the email from Maria

I wanted to say thanks again to the all of the Golf Society for the funds towards the newly named Raheny All Stars.

We bought the children new hats and jerseys with their team name on front and training tops for the coaches.


Also a big thanks to John from Super Value for the selection boxes.

I've attached a photo of the group, we had our Christmas party last Friday in the club and presented everyone with their new gear.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

So thanks again, it was a great help in getting us started.

Happy Christmas & best wishes for the New Year,

Maria, Will and the Raheny All Stars


The U-7 Boys had a busy last week after hosting Clontarf GAA in challenge matches in hurling and football where they continued to make great progress in using all the skills covered during the coaching sessions of the last few months.

On Thursday the team were presented with their new jerseys by Cathal McHugh of McHughs Restaurant Raheny who has kindly sponsored the new set of jerseys.

Also along on the night was  "Sam Maguire" who made an appearance courtesy of Shane O'Hanlon ( Dublin selector) and Michael Savage ( Dublin & St.Vincent's goalkeeper).

Keep an eye out for our future stars in 14th December issue of the Northside People.

Finally as if that wasn't hectic enough, to round off the year the Boys (45+) and Mentors (15+) had a trip to the cinema on the Saturday followed by a surprise visit from Santa.

 The boys are a credit to themselves, their parents and the club and have a well earned rest until the 21st January 2017.

Results
Congratulations to the pride of the parish Brian Fenton on winning an All Star at the weekend.  

U12 Hurlers go to Division 1 as they beat Ballinteer in the top Division play off. Raheny 4-7 v 4-4 Ballinteer.  


Raheny 1-12 V Thomas Davis 2-07


A very strong performance from Raheny all over the pitch with everybody playing their part to set up a great win after extra time.

Thomas Davis led by 4 points at half time despite a strong defensive performance by Raheny.

Raheny came out strong in the second half and tied up the score before a well worked goal gave Thomas Davis a three point lead. However, Raheny chipped away and an Adam Codd goal brought Raheny back into the game. Thomas Davis scored a late point to take the lead before Liam Dunne levelled with the last kick of normal time. 
Thomas Davis roared into the lead in extra time with an unanswered goal and a point. But an excellent point from Adam Codd closed the gap. However the game was won in the second period of extra time with points from Eoin Bridgeman, Cuan Malone and Adam Codd building a three point lead that we never relinquished.

While this was a great team performance and everybody worked very hard for the win, there were stand out performances from Sean Lumley, Tom O'Donnell, Leon Coakley and Robert McGuirk who all defended superbly throughout.


Under 13 hurlers serve up a Classic

Raheny 1:17

St Judes 2:9


Pitch 10 was the venue for what turned out to be a cracking game of hurling between Raheny and St Judes.  After fourteen Division 2 matches it took this second place decider to separate Raheny from St Judes after each side ended the season on 20 points.  And as luck would have it, it also took extra time with each team vying for a bag of silver medals and a shot at Division 1 hurling.  St Judes were a big physical team and had good hurlers throughout the pitch.  This was going to be no easy task. 

From the moment the ball was thrown in Raheny set out their stall with each man working very hard –but none more so than Adam McAweeney  who (as usual) gave a demonstration of work rate at mid field for the 80 minutes and ensured no Judes man got a free shot with his courageous blocking and hooking. 

Joe Cooper led from the No. 1 spot, his puck outs, the best in Dublin, proving a welcome relief for the Raheny out field men.  In front of Joe, Colm Grogan and Ciaran Harnett  ensured nothing got by while Conal Devitt and Cian Mitchell picked the right time to have their games of the season, proving too much to handle for the Judes forwards.  On the half back line James Gleeson and Ruari Walsh cleanly caught and cleared a lot of ball and both have improved hugely during 2016.

Brian Dunne, with a deadly mix of skill and tenacity gave a masterclass at left half back emerging time and again from the rooks with ball in hand driving through the Judes crowd and belting the ball up field.

At mid field beside Adam McAweeney was Thomas Hurley. Thomas, even by his own high standards, was outstanding throughout from open play and in addition punished Judes every time they fouled nailing an incredible 13 frees and a point from play.  Exhibition stuff.

The forwards were up against a very difficult defence but Conor Baldwin, Cathal O’Grady, Andrew Geoghan, Mathew McGloin, Callum Grehan, Conor Aherne and Eoghan Cullen worked tirelessly and provided great ball to an in-form Daniel Broderick who finished the game with 1:2 and Charlie McHugh, most pundits player of the season, who popped over a vital point and had a super game breaking away from his man time and again.

In the end despite, the best efforts of an excellent Judes side, Raheny won on an impressive scoreline of 1:17 to 2:9 so it will be Raheny that will be collecting the bag of silver medals.  Just reward for a super season. 

Bring on 2017.

Raheny U11 Boys trip to Dungarvan



Raheny GAA under 11 boys team went on their first overnight trip last weekend to take part in a hurling blitz in Dungarvan. A group of over 60 comprising of parents, mentors and players travelled in convoy and took up residence in the lodges of the Gold Coast Hotel. Raheny took part in a blitz on Saturday afternoon hosted by Brickey Rangers GAA club. 

 

Raheny fielded 3 9-a-side teams and all teams played 3 matches each against local Waterford clubs. The effort and skill levels shown by the boys was fantastic.  Special mention must go to Jack Kirby and Kevin Kelly for doing everything and more that was asked of them. Aaron Miller made some of greatest saves seen this season while defending a full size goal. Ted Laput and Jack Beary demonstrated wonderful tackling, blocking and hooking skills throughout the day. Cormac O'Reilly and Shay Keogh weighed in with 5 goals between them. David Adams, Mark Farrelly and Cathal Baldwin worked incredibly hard across 3 matches and gave their opponents no time on the ball. Ryan McGuirk scored some fine points and Niall Cox displayed his full range of skills in an impressive midfield performance.

 

Afterwards the boys returned to the swimming pool in the hotel followed by a meal and a movie night. Everyone was up early on Sunday morning for a fun training session on the magnificent pitch owned by the hotel that Waterford senior hurlers and many other top teams train on. Special thanks to Ciaran McNally and Colm O'Reilly for all the work involved in organising this very successful trip.
