Under Under 14s reach Feile Final.
An exhibition of skill and determination was rewarded as the under 14 hurlers reach the Division 2 final in great style despite the conditions in a rain soaked Round Towers Clondalkin. As many Feile veterans know, tuas maith leath nah-oibre. Raheny met defending title holders Oliver Plunkettsin their opening game and came out convincing winners in a 3-14 to 1-7 result. Enda Owens was on top at midfield, Sean Lumley and Mark Murphy kept things tight at the back while Thomas Hurley, Liam Dunne and Tom Geary bagged the scores up front. The second match was a tougher affair as a very fancied hosts Round Towers appeared to have the game in the bag at half time leading Raheny by 3-2 to 1-2. But what a second half. Raheny dominated every position. JoeCrimmins bagged a poacher goal to settle the sideline nerves and the backs Josh Lynch, Robert McGuirk and Tom O Donnell were like a brick wall. With things all square and the time almost up the whistle blew, free to Raheny, Liam Dunne blasted it over and Raheny collected the points. The last group game was an easy win over Faughs. Sean Ryan, Luke Moreau, Scott Atkins and Robert and Anthony House had good games. Raheny topped the group setting up a semi final pairing with St Sylvesters. The semi final was an exhibition of hurling by the Raheny backs. Luke Fox was very effective in his man marking role while Sean Lumley, Adam Codd, Ben Roberts and Josh Lynch launched ball after ball into the forwards. Eoin Bridgeman hovered up a huge amount of ball at midfield. Tom Geary and Liam Dunnes first halfgoals gave a half time cushion of 2-4 to 0-3. Jack Maguire and Tadhg O Donoghue did well up front. Sylvesters had no answer to the Raheny men in the second half only managing to score two second half points, with Thomas Hurley keeping a clean sheet in goal. Feile Semi final Result Division 2. Raheny 2-7 St Sylvesters 0-5. The scheduled final versus Skerries has been postponed due to the waterlogged pitches. At time of writing no date or venue has been confirmed for the feile final. When it is we will need your support !14s reach Feile Final.

Thanks to Adrienne Atkins for the keeping us up to date with all the results and also to Seamus Dunne for the match report.

The final is now set for Saturday afternoon 3.30pm v Skerries on pitch 10 in St Annes. We are looking for a solid sideline for this match, the 16th man is essential. The very best of luck lads.


Senior Camogie 2 and 4
Another great week for the Adult Camogie Section this week with 2 away wins.
On Tuesday The Senior 2's had a 4.5. to 2.9 win over St Vincents B- the ladies got off to another slow start and were 5 points down after 5 minutes but recovered well and by half time led 3.4 to 2.4- the 2nd half Vincents which dominated scoring 5 points without reply after some great defending by the Raheny defence left Vinnies leading by 2 with 5 minutes to go.
But this year these Raheny ladies do not know when they are beaten and after a fine point from a Lorna Twohig free which was followed up nearly immediately with Sarah Caulfield fielding a high ball and with one swift movement burying the ball to the back of the net - time was up- a victory stole from the jaws of defeat - nothing sweeter.
On Thursday night the Senior 4's went out to Erin Isles with a squad of 16 players and played their hearts out- the Camogie may not have been the prettiest but the spirit , the determination an the belief the team could win against all the odds shone thru with Raheny coming out on the right side with a 1 point victory 2.5 to 1.7 with Trish Grehan scoring the winning point .
