U9 HURLERS
The U9 boys team had a tricky away hurling match vs Skerries Harps on Saturday April 5th. The boys took up where they left off against Scoil Ui Chonail last week and put in a tremendous performance

Well done to our U9 Group Gold team who played an away hurling fixture against Skerries Harps on Saturday. Throughout the game the team showed great determination and fighting spirit.  Every ball was chased and fought for during each half.  The Gold team welcomed a new player Tommy Coakley and he played great in his first Raheny game, even after taking an early knock, he got straight back into playing!   Jamie Lambert played fantastic in defence during the first half with great marking and fearless tackling and played in midfield in the second half providing great support to the defence and pushed forward when needed and helped to secure Raheny's scores.  There was some nice passing play between James Keating and Killian McGuirk in the first half with Killian on the scoring sheet.  Adam Loscher was on the scoring sheet in the second half with great assistance provided by Michael Quinn who seemed to be everywhere and fought with great determination for every ball.  Jack O'Leary played in goal in the second half and provided some great saves from shots at close range.  Cathal Moran and Patrick Bishop where brilliant in midfield and they followed up with every strike and tackle to support both the defence and supply the forwards.  Harry Keegan and Jack Beary were solid in defence and struck some nice balls out to supply their Raheny midfielders and forwards.  Ryan Kerrisk was great up front and chased ever ball.  Well done to all the lads, they played very well and never gave up and secured a well deserved drawn.
The  U9 'White Team' ran out winners on a scoreline of 6-5 to 4-2 against a useful Harps team. The first half saw Raheny dominate their opponents but a combination of not taking their chances and some good saves by the Skerries goalkeeper meant Raheny led by the narrowest of margins 3-1 to 2-1 at the break. Jack McCarthy, Jack Kirby and Ted Laput caught the eye with some excellent technique and committed hurling in the opening period. Raheny had to weather an early storm from Skerries in the 2nd half but took firm control of the game when the hugely influential Aaron Miller and Paul Moriarty scored two points a piece with outstanding strikes from the hand over the bar. Despite their healthy lead Raheny never let up and great goalkeeping by Adam Flynn, and later Shay Keogh, and brave defending and ball winning by Padraig Reilly and Kevin Kelly saw Raheny over the line. This was an excellent performance by the boys with both skill and grit on show in equal measure.
The U9 Green team were also very impressive in their win with Ryan Markham pulling off a miracle save that Gary Maguire (Dublin goalkeeper) would have been proud of! Great determination and ball winning from all of the boys ensured they came out on top. The  boys are starting to learn the importance of working together as a team and supporting each other on the field and that is to be encouraged by all.


U9 Camogie
Another fantastic display of skills by the under nines Camogie team.
With a fantastic two wins and two draws away to Skerries on Sunday the girls are showing a real energy and ability towards lifting the ball in the second half and they seem more then ready to take it on. Well done!



U10 Camogie
Like all good teams the real proof of the pudding is when they are tested to there max, the girls showed tremendous determination under pressure from st. Vincent's and Fingallians on Saturday they battled and battled and battled some more even with a couple of injures they never quit well done in a big effort.
Even Sinead on crutches couldn't be kept away from the side lines to cheer on her team mates. What a team!


Hard luck to our U16s footballers who lost by a point to our neighbours Naomh Barrog.


Fundraising was the theme in the club this weekend, with bag packing in Dunnes Stores for our U13 girls and in Supervalu Raheny for our Feile boys followed on sunday by a car wash outside the club, rumours have it that a photo exists of a former senior manager with a  scrubing brush....
