Senior Camogie
had a 3 point loss on Tuesday to Na Fianna.



U12 Hurling. Raheny 4-4, Castleknock 0-4. Aided by a strong breeze in the first half Castleknock started off the brighter with two well taken points. Raheny then got to grips with the game and began a very fine passage of play which resulted in a goal for Raheny. Raheny despite playing against the breeze had the vast amount of play towards the end of the first half but were wasteful in front of goal. At half time Raheny lead by 1-2 to 2 points.  After a low scoring first half, Raheny, playing with the breeze, upped the ante in the second half to win this game by 4 goals. Overall the defence was excellent and was the platform on which the forwards and midfielders were able to get and control possession and take their scores. All of the team played well and showed a great hunger throughout the match not allowing Castleknock to settle on the ball. Scorers were Liam Dunne 3 goals, Alex Brae 1 goal, and points from Niall Walsh, Sean Farrelly, Luke Mitchell and Tom Keogh. This was a very much improved performance from the Clontarf match and well done to the whole team who raised their game. 


AHL2 - Many thanks to all who came out to support our senior hurlers on a chilly saturday evening. They had a great win over St Marks.  Raheny 8-10 v  St Marks 1-9.


Junior E Hurling Championship Group 2 - Raheny 0-3 Castleknock 4-8


Minor Football League Div 5 - Raheny 5-6 St Judes 0-7


U10 Football - A tough assignment for Raheny U10s in football last Sat at home against a strong Castleknock outfit.  Superior numbers on the day for Castleknock meant they had strong sub benches and it showed in the scoring.  Raheny started well and led their matches with some excellent point taking and defending but the second half told a tale.   A lack of tackles, missed passes and a lack of scoring opportunities meant Castleknock ran out comfortable winners.
No doubt there will be some fitness work to be done in the training sessions for the guys over the next few weeks and they will surely bounce back with a few more wins!!
Man of the match awards went to Matthew Lodge, Jamie Gilligan and Matthew Smyth with, Conor Baldwin, Michael Collins and Gary Davitt picking up the most improved player awards


Football Saturday 28th Vs Fingal Ravens St Annes Pitch 12a 
The CFF arrived with 14 but and were warming up with some much needed shooting practice before hand. Ravens arrived with 9ish and wanted to play with the 9 even though we offered to loan them some girls for the day just so as everybody played... ah well. A cliche I know but it was a game of 2 halves with the wind blowing a gale down the pitch and it made a huge difference. Raheny were under pressure from the off but soon adjusted to the high bouncing balls as they came in. A great battling display of  football took place from 10 mins into the first half right up to the final kick of the game where Shauna launched in a free and it found its way to the net...... a cracker to seal the victory. Special mention goes to to our injured hero Lauren who came off the worst for wear. 


Camogie Sunday 29th Vs Kilmacud away in Alaska 
The 2001 CFF ventured to Kilmacud on a freezing cold Sunday morning for the two team Camogie League fixture. Despite the Baltic conditions the girls gave their very best in both games with star performances from Aisling O'Grady, Orla Kelly and Mia Kirwan on Team Geoffrey and Jessica McGarry, Jenny O'Reilly and Ciara Storey on Team Eamonn. Great support from parents as usual - the local coffee shop did well in keeping them all warm throughout and the spoils were shared on the day. 


Following on from last weeks mail and subsequent advertising on the club website & newsletter we are now looking to get an idea of numbers for the Blitz & BBQ on Sunday 6th May.
