Raheny Coaching Conference
We held our first club coaching conference on Saturday 10th December. We had a great turn out of
60+ coaches from Raheny plus a number of coaches from outside the club who were invited.
 
Thanks to all involved in organising, feeding the masses and to all the teams that took part as well. A special mention to TY students who gave up their time to help with registration, serving food and cleaning up.

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.

Results

Hard luck to our U13 Ladies football team who narrowly lost their first Shield Final on Saturday to St Peregrines 7-08 v 8-07 it was a nail biting game right to the bitter end.  A special word of thanks to all the parents, grandparents, friends and supporters who came along on the day to support the girls and to Siobhan Woods who spoke to the girls beforehand. The team are also competing in their first Div 3 Camogie Shield final against Round Tower (Clondalkin) on Sunday 23rd October.



Congratulations to our U15a ladies footballers team who won their shield final on Saturday. 














Hard luck to our U15b ladies who were runners up in their championship final on Saturday.


Under 15 hurlers take Division 2 title.

Raheny 4:14

Faughs 0:4

If Carlsberg did farewell matches this could have been it as the Under 15 manager of 8 years Áine Williams bowed out in style. Her input over the years reflected on the field of play on Sunday morning. Thanks Aine and best of luck with the studies from all the parents and your assistant mentors.'

An outstanding first half display against a gale force wind laid the foundation for a comprehensive win for our Under 15 hurlers in Tymon north on Sunday morning to be crowned Dublin Under 15 Division 2 league champs.  Goals from Liam Dunne (1:4) and Tom Geary (2:2) and a man of the match performance from the particularly mobile and astute centre back Rob McGuirk ensured a hard fought half time score of 2:4 to 0:2 would be unassailable for the hosts facing the second half wind.  And so it was as Raheny ran out comfortable winners. 

Adam Codd kept a clear sheet in goal well minded by Josh Lynch, Sean Lumley, Tom O Donnell and Mathew Lodge.  The centre back line was like a brick wall allowing nothing past with Leon Coakley, Darragh O Grady and Sean Ryan winning all the rooks on the half back line.  As ever Mark Muphy (0:1) and Eoin Bridgeman at midfield gave master classes in the art of work rate and never allowed the Faughs midfield to settle for the entire 60 minutes.  Up front a hard working Tadhg O Donnell, Anthony House, Thomas Moriarty did well while Ben Roberts (0:1) and Thomas Hurley (1:2) struck some lovely scores including an outrageous point from the sideline from Enda Owens (0:3).  Cheer of the match went out for a lovely bit of team work that ended in a great point by Luke Moreau.  Well done also to Joe Crimmins, Robert House, Luke Fox, Jamie Herbert and Daniel Kane, who played so well during the long league campaign and unfortunately didn’t get a run out on Sunday morning


Our Intermediate Hurlers were knocked out of the championship by St Judes in Blakestown on Saturday after a hard fought game by just one point.


Scoil Reachrann played their first ever camogie match and walked away with a win, Maith sibh Cailini. They had 7 girls from Raheny which included 2 sets of sisters...can you spot them??



Well done to one of our Feeder school St Brigid's boys who are through  to the football Final in Croke Park.

ALL IRELAND FOOTBALL FINAL Replay Tickets

As the Dublin GAA Club total ticket allocations for the All Ireland Football Final Replay will remain the same as the total allocation received by clubs for the Final on 18th September, this means that Raheny GAA will receive a very similar amount to the first game.

I know it was announced that The Dublin County Board would receive a limited number of family tickets, these tickets have been allocated as a priority to the Dublin Senior Football Team and their families.

Date and time for draw will be announced at a later date so keep an eye on social media.


All Ireland Replay Ticket Raffle

Hi all,
We are running another raffle for tickets for next Saturday's match.

Tickets are priced at €10 each and we have 2 sets of tickets up for grabs (1) 2 stand tickets

Raheny Under 7’s (born 2009) v Naomh Barrog, Saturday September 17

Last Saturday (September 17) the Raheny under 7's made the pleasantly short journey (through the trees) to pitch 14 to take on our local rivals Naomh Barrog. The Raheny contingent travelled in great form, the weather was fantastic, player numbers were good and the mentors knew they didn't need to set up any pitches!!

The format was simple: 7 a side games, a goalkeeper, 2 defenders, 2 midfielders and 2 forwards. Pitches are divided into two zones, defenders must stay in the defence zone, forwards in the forward zone and midfielders have the freedom of the park. Matches are 10 to 12 minutes long and all players get to play 2 hurling and 2 football games. We travelled with 5 teams to take on Barrogs 4. 

First up on pitch 1 was our blue team led ably by man of the match Alex Daly. The blue team played some brilliant football and especially hurling throughout the hour. Christopher Barry and Ruadhan Fidgeon demonstrated all the skills, while Keith Burke and Alex Kennedy never stopped tackling and passing. Naoise Heaney keeps on improving and Louis O'Leary manages to transfer the skills learned on the training pitch to a match situation effortlessly. 

Next up the green team: Alex and Archie Champ are busy lads, they seem to be playing some sport every day but there was no hint of tiredness as they both gave huge performances. New recruit Isaac Ryan earned man of match for the green team with some super work and John Nangle showed so much skill that we have him ear marked as a star of the future. As always Harry Duffitt was superb and managed to put in possibly the best block of the day. Gav Dufficy showed his normal tenacity working tirelessly for the team.

The orange team were relentless throughout.  Luke Kinsella was a power house in the middle of the park, ably assisted by the silky skills of Conor Harrington and Aaron Buckley.  Joshua Gallagher (cheered on by his granddad, Raheny legend Tosh) put in a great performance.  Mark O’Mahony gave a master class and was rewarded with the man of the match gong.  However he had stiff competition from Christopher Howell (what a tackle!!), Dara Flynn and Conor Beaddie who were fantastic throughout.      

The teamwork of our red team was a joy to behold.  Cathal O’Braoin scored two memorable goals, one in hurling and a belter in football (a dual star!!). Save of the day went to Joshua Frier who deservedly received man of the match for his efforts throughout.  Joe Murphy never ever stops working for the team and Sam O’Brien as always demonstrated his superb striking skills.  Jack Hamill has developed a side step to be proud of and Zach Ramsey is without doubt a star in the making.  Last but certainly not least was Bill Beary who like his team mates was superb all day.

We knew our white team was good but even we were shocked with how well they played on the day.  In saying that there’s no surprise with how well Patrick Devitt played, he always does.  Another one of the Gallaghers, Charlie this time, also put in a powerful performance.  Conor Murphy demonstrated superbly his new found love of hurling, while Jamie Kelly, Daniel Payton and Eoghan Savage all super players gave brilliant performances.  A special mention for Ciaran Reilly who just keeps getting better and better.  Man of the match for the white team went to the unstoppable Leo Vaughan, a real diamond.

This group of players are a gifted bunch with a great ‘never give up’ attitude.  We train on Thursday evenings at 18.30 (moving indoors to Manor House hall from October 6) and on Saturday mornings in St Anne’s Park at 10am on pitch 3 (just off All Saints Road).  The ethos is one of fun, effort and participation and we’d be delighted to welcome any new players.
