FIXTURES

RESULTS



U9's Trip to Croker
On Sunday our under 9 boys, with military precision, took over a small part of the Croke Park Davin Stand to cheer on the Dubs.  Although there to shout on the Raheny Brians (Fenton and Howard) it was also a way to celebrate a fantastic first half of the 2018 under 9 season in both football and hurling.  Our under 9’s are in the 3 team north side league this year and have performed magnificently right from the off.  The lads always show a fantastic appetite for hard work in games but of most satisfaction for the mentors involved, is the lads constant improvement in the skills of our games.  In both codes the progress that all the players have made since the start of the season has been incredible to witness.  Sunday was the perfect day for all the players and mentors to celebrate and of course the Dubs didn’t let us down!!!

Girls Class Blitz

Last Friday night, mentors from our go-games ladies teams got together and arranged a schools blitz for girls. 
Any girls were welcome to attend and were split into their class groups where they played both camogie and football matches. 110 girls participated and almost 20 of those are not currently club members. The hope is that some of these girls will decide to join up. The relevant mentors from each age group are following up with the girls parents.
As the weather was perfect on Friday night, the girls were very happy to get some very well earned refreshments at the end of their respective sessions.

Once all matches were concluded, many went back to the club for a BBQ hosted by the U11 team mentors. Chef John Corbett did such a great job that the food ran out and we had to send for more! Thanks to Fiona Lambert for the shopping and all of the BBQ prep work. And a big thanks to all of the mentors from U8 to U12 who helped on the evening.

Wednesday 30/5 AHL2 v Erin Isle away 7.30.

Sen Ladies footballers away v Cro Ro Naofa 7.30.


RESULTS

Hard luck to our ladies Footballers in their championship match v Castleknock. But what a wonderful advertisement for Ladies Championship football last week on pitch 10 against Castleknock, while our girls went down by a point in a never say die performance.  The skill, style of play, intensity and teamwork from both teams was a joy to watch.  Last year there would have been a three divisional gap between the teams which was not evident last Wednesday. Despite the defeat our ladies continue to go from strength to strength.
Also to both AFL2 and AFL4 who lost to Skerries Harps and St Vincent’s during the week.

The U-7's boys have been busy taking advantage of the sunny weather over the last number of weeks with home and away games in both hurling and football against Beann Éadair.

The boys have come on in leaps and bounds during the matches as the skills they have practiced in training have been put to good use. They are really enjoying pulling on the Raheny and taking part in the matches.

They are a credit to themselves, their parents and the Club, mol an óige agus tiocfaidh siad.

Also the U-7's would like to thank Andy Cunningham of AC Buiding ( www.acbuilding.ie, 086 684 5481 ) for sponsoring a batch of hurleys for the boys they have been put to good use already.

Lastly a big thank you to " Na Bainisteoirí" over the last few weeks Aislinn, Ciarán, Rich, Rory, Ivan, Eddie, Ken, Martin, Pádraig, Liam, Dave and Gavin

Feile 2018 - Football 

On Saturday we hosted the U-14 (Div.9)Football Feile at the club (Teams included Raheny(B),Ballyboden,Clontarf and St Vincents). 

The day started at 8 am with the assistance of our many volunteers out preparing pitches  9 &10 which looked in excellent condition for the day. The Raheny team met at  9.15 am at the club  and walked down to the pitches hoping to go one better on their good run in the Hurling Feile 2 weeks earlier. 

It was a great sight to see the four teams  led around the pitch by local Piper Noreen Gaughran in the morning sunshine.


First up for Raheny was Ballyboden and our boys got off to a flyer with early scores from Rueben Murphy, Jason Buckley and Declan Braden ensured we settled well and strong defensive led by Oisin Cummins we ran out comfortable winners 9:11 to 1-0.


The next match was against Clontarf following their win over St Vincents .This match was going to be a key match for us and how the day was going to be decided. Raheny got the first point of the match from the booth of Jason Buckley but Clontarf responded swiftly with a goal and 2 points.With both teams exchanging scores and Clontarf extending their lead to 5 points we were under pressure all around the pitch .This game changer for Raheny came with the introduction of John Mc Nally from the bench who made an immediate impact scoring 2 goals which settled our  boys. This was a competitive game of football, great displays from our defence from Cormac Lenihan (captain) in goals, Robert Moran, Sean O Grady, Johnny "Ever Running" Robinson, Shay Keogh in midfield and all the forward getting on the score sheet ensured Raheny ran out winners on a score line  of   5-8 to 2-5.


The stage was set in glorious sunshine for Raheny's final game  in the group  against St Vincent's and a win would have secured a home semi final. However St Vincent's got off to the better start with Raheny struggling to keep up with the early exchanges - a few injuries  proving to be very costly for us and at half time we trailed by 5 points. Our boys  worked tirelessly through out the second half but failed to close the gap. St Vincents finished strongly with 3 goals and winning on a final score of 8-8 to 2-6 and topping the group on points difference, they went on to win the semi final against Cuala. Temoleogue Synge were the outright winners of the division.

While we were disappointed with our final match result, we are very proud of our boy's over all performance and the manner they represented our club.The day was a tremendous success and a credit to all who made it happen- Club volunteers, Sandwich makers, Fund raising committee, Team sponsors / Scouts who supplied tents and our great supporters on the sideline.

 
 
 
 


Thank You

Feile 2018 -  Camogie Report

2018 Camogie Feile Divisions 2 & 6 – Match Reports

 

Last Saturday morning the sun was splitting the skies, the 2004 girls team made up of 37 players (inc. five 2005 players) met at the clubhouse at 8:30am. There was plenty of excitement, photos & best wishes and we all set off from the Club at 8:45am to represent the parish in camogie.

 

Our division 2 team headed to Castleknock with our division 6 team playing in Ballyboden.

 

Division 2 Update

After a short journey along the M50 we arrived at Castleknock’s pitch just before 9:30am. The players were ready, mentors and supporters were all set and looking forward to seeing the great skills of the girls. Before the throw-in, all (8) teams participating in the division 2 feile competition, paraded around Castleknock’s pitch, lead by the piper. The crowds cheered and clapped all teams as the players walked past the supporters. The captain for the Feile competition was Shauna Dunne who led the team with pride and passion.

 

The first match, Castleknock Vs Raheny.. Castleknock were favorites as they beat us a couple of weeks ago and with home advantage they thought the two points were in the bag..  but no, the girls came out, in the true spirit that is Raheny GAA. With a couple of scores exchanged, we lost our goalkeeper Maria O’Connor to injury (arm) and our versatile corner back Aisling Brassil stepped up to the mark who played great between the sticks for the rest of the game.  A couple of the girls took knocks, and with the fantastic skills of all the players including Moya Harrison, Lili Ni Brádaigh, Carys Daly and Ava Peake the team drew the match. It was a great game of end to end camogie.

 

The second match, Raheny Vs Fingallians.. again another team that we played against previously (the last time was the Div 2 U13 Championship Final). This was going to be another cracking encounter and it certainly was. Clodagh McKeever, Sarah Brady and Emily Roberts in the full back line were sublime. The half back line of Katelyn Kelly, Cristina Tome and Kate McCullagh were rock solid and with the ‘faster than speed of light’ pace of Lucy McMullen and Shauna Dunne on display the team ran Fingallians to the wire. This match did not go our way and we were pipped by 2 points.

 

The third match, Raheny Vs St. Vincents.. this game was our final game of the day, Vinnies who won the the previous two games (against Castleknock and Fingallians) were through to the semi-finals. We knew this game would be a hard fought battle and that it was. At the end of the first half we were down by a point, it was a very close game and all girls played with so much heart, including outstanding performances from Kate Kelly, Sinead O’Hanlon, Jane Murphy, Sarah Kelly, Aisling Brassil & Maria O’Connor (who returned from injury).

 

The final whistle blew, the girls were gracious in defeat (we lost by a couple of points),  shook hands and congratulated the opposition & referee only to be cheered on by the so many supported who supported the team (including U15 girls team) the entire day.

 

(Note: St Vincent’s went on to win the Div 2 Feile Competition on Sunday.)

 

Division 6 Update

The Div 6 team set out in great hope last Saturday morning to the wilds of South Dublin to participate in the annual Feile festival of camogie. The venue was Ballyboden St. Enda’s and we were greeted with blue skies and a warm welcome from our hosts. The team were resplendent in their Raheny gear and looked the part as we set up camp on the freshly cut grass adjacent to pitch 1.

 

The first match was scheduled for 10.40am against Castleknock. This was a tough game and Raheny were on the back foot early on and conceded 2 quick goals. The team battled hard to get back into the match and scored a point through the determined work of Abi Kelly in midfield with Katelyn Moran getting the score. Castleknock fought back to get another goal and a point before half time despite the brave efforts of Aisling Griffin and Laura Nolan in the back line. The second half was a more even affair and Raheny were unlucky not to score with some great work down the left wing by Mia Dodd causing panic in the Castleknock defence on more than one occasion. The Raheny team were greatly supported by the players from the U13 squad and in the second half Caoilinn Hayden was a threat every time she got on the ball. Castleknock stole in for a goal and a point late on to leave the score line 0-01 to 4-03. This was not the start the team had hoped for but was always likely to be the most difficult game and this proved to be the case.

 

Our second match was against Ballinteer St. John’s who we had met the previous week. That game resulted in a narrow defeat for Raheny and the team were determined to come out on top this time. Ballinteer got off to a quick start and raced into a 2 goal lead before some great forward play from Terri Fuller and Aoife Doherty resulted in a goal by Katelyn Moran. Raheny continued to pile on the pressure through Nicola Cotter and Laoise Kellett but some heroic defending by Ballinteer meant the team went in a goal down at half time. The second half was mainly played in the Ballinteer half and any threat at the other end was snuffed out by the superb goalkeeping of Charley Reynolds. The pressure on the Ballinteer defence finally told and Katelyn Moran cracked in another great goal to set up a grandstand finish. Unfortunately the clock was not on our side and despite relentless pressure on the Ballinteer goal the game finished in a draw 2-00 to 2-00.

 

Results in other games meant that our final game against the hosts was a winner takes all affair. Despite this being our third game and the inevitable physical strain that had on the players, they rose to the occasion and played their best game of the day. They were fired up from the first whistle and tackled with great determination and intensity and no shortage of skill. After 5 minutes the ball was launched into the forward line and following some brave tackling from Eimear McGlinchy the ball fell to Eve O’ Grady who gave the team a great start with a goal. The pressure was intense as the Ballyboden players fought tooth and nail to get back into the game. Aoibhe Marjoram was immense and defended as if her life depended on it and Laura Kelly and Katie Kent used their fitness and strength to put up a roadblock in front of Charley’s goal. The pressure finally told and Ballyboden scored a goal and a point from a free just before half time. The Raheny team put in a valiant effort in the second half and the skilful play of Clodagh Callanan and Lauren Murphy created chances that on another day would have produced a score. However, despite the courageous effort by the players in the second half the match finished in a narrow win for Ballyboden on a score line of 1-02 to 1-00.

 

The team narrowly missed out on a place in the final but it was inspirational to see the effort that they put in over the 3 games. The Mentors would like to thank them for representing Raheny and their families so well.

 

A huge thanks to the families and friends who travelled out with the team and provided massive support and encouragement throughout the day.

A heartfelt thanks to the U13 players who joined us on the day. They integrated really well with the group and were superb team players over the 3 games.

The players would not have performed as well as they did without the cool head and steady hand of Tony O’Grady and the motivational skills of John Nolan who also doubled as Water Boy for the day. Operations Manager Gar McKeever ensured there was a plentiful supply of food and drink for the squad throughout the day and as Umpire he stood his ground when a disputed ‘point’ for Ballyboden was correctly signalled as a wide. A special mention goes to Ciara Manley who provided great support and encouragement to the team and is a great role model for the players.

 

Finally

After the great displays of the entire squad (div 2 & div 6), we all headed back to the club for refreshments. Pizza and chips were in great demand and the girls started and ended the day with big smiles.

 

We would like to thank the ambassadors that are our players, the five U13 team players, parents and supporters who made this day an enjoyable experience for the girls. Roll on the football feile on 19 / 20 May.

 

The 2004 Ladies Team Mentors - Antoinette, Kevin, Anthony, Tony, Patrick, Gareth, Ciara & John.

RESULTS

Well done to our footballers on Sunday morning in the Junior football Championship. Raheny 1-13 to St Vincents 1-10.
A great fighting performance from Raheny to overcome a tough St Vincents team.  Raheny found themselves trailing 1-1 to 0-1 early on but rallied to lead 1-6 to 1-4 at half time thanks to a great team goal scored by John Ryan.  The second half was a tense affair with points being exchanged all though, but Rahenys spirit kept them ahead to win by 3 points in the end.  Great defence by Gavin Beaddie and big performances from Cian Storey, Niall Stack and Rory Boyle.  Scorers were John Ryan 1-2, Jack Lyons 0-2, Donal Ryan 0-2, Eoin Gillen 0-2, Danny Reid 0-1, Joe O Reilly 0-1, Eoin Kirwan 0-1 and Colly Hanley 0-1.  Next Championship match for these lads is September.
