Our Senior footballers first Championship match ended in a draw against St Maurs in extra time. Nail bitting stuff. Rematch details will posted as soon as we known.


Senior 1 camogie had a tough couple of weeks but have the chance to bounce back on Tuesday evening away to Erins Isle. Key match for the team and all support greatly appreciated.


Senior 4 Camogie
Another great win for the Senior 4's V Erins Isle this Sunday. Raheny started the better side with plenty of chances up front. A tough Isles defense kept the scoring low in the first half with Raheny leading 1-4 to 0-1 at the break. Showing great team spirit and determination, Raheny took their chances in the second half and ensured there was no way back for Isles.  Final score Raheny 4-9 Isles 0-3. Scorers: E. Rheinisch 2-5, J. Dowling 1-1, E. Grenham 1-1, S. Curran 0-2


Under 9's Boys match report. The under 9 hurlers headed to a blustery and cold Na Fianna's grounds in Collinstown on Saturday. Na Fianna struggled a bit with numbers due to Holy Communion and our usual three match fixtures were reduced to two. Some Raheny lads were asked to 'play away' for the opposition and did so with no argument. Both teams were involved in low scoring matches - Team 1 with a win and Team 2's match ending in a draw. Excellent performances all round with midfield dynamo Daniel Broderick back to his best and Conor Ahearn with a great catch and Raheny's first skill point at this level. James O'Connell and Brian Purcell were the other stars when yet again there was an excellent turnout of players. Could we remind parents that shinguards needed for hurling for both training and matches.
Whites
The White team, playing in the 2 team hurling league, hosted O'Dwyers last Saturday. Strong performances from both Raheny sides resulted in a clean sweep of the matches with some excellent hurling on display. Team 1 showed great ground hurling skills and strong striking off both sides to keep their opponents on the back foot for long periods of the games. Micheal Quinn, Jack McCarthy and Jack Kirby put in battling performances and won a constant stream of ball, while Matteo Gela-Napoli and Ryan Markham stood out from our goal scorers. Great allround teamwork was underlined by goolkeeper John Broderick who memorably scored direct from a puckout !
Team 2, great team performance from all over the pitch, with players holding their positions on the park.  Up front, both Ted Laput and Adam Roberts scoring fine goals, with Adams getting two.
Shay Keogh, Mathew Sherlock, Paul Moriarity and Ryan McGuirk battled throughout providing the determination resulting in an fantastic team performance.  Keep it up
Maroons
Team 3 showed wonderful team work and great grit to win both games to overcome a skillful Naomh OP/ER side. Shay Keogh, Killian McGuirk and James Keating chased and won every ball. While Adam Flynn, John Broderick and Mark Farrelly got some great scores.


U9 Camogie
Well done to Raheny under 9's Camogie team for the tremendous effort they put in against St. Vincent's & Fingallians in their blitz on Sunday the 12th May.
Raheny had a great turn out on a particularly wet morning, so well done to all who turned up to brave the elements, you can definitely see the skill level of the team improving with each match so well done girls and mentors. Thanks also to Antoinette for continuing to provide the energy snacks after she had a slight set back a previous week when some of the team members turned there noses up at her jaffa cakes.
The jury is still out on the hot chocolate providers but i'm hoping to get some feed back from the team on how they feel they are doing at the next match.
Happy Birthday to Aoife Doherty who is nine and a belated 40th to Mentor Kevin.
Remember with the stretch in the evenings it's a great time to polish your skills with a few minutes of practice in the evenings when you get chance.


Raheny 2001 and 2001 girls maroon their opponents

The 2001 and 2002 girls took to the fields of St Annes this week end in the Clubs traditional maroon emblazoned with CFHopesource logo  and boy did they put on a show.
Saturday blew up a storm but the girls in maroon don't worry about wind and rain as they created a storm of their own.
In the blue league Raheny overcame Castleknock with some great points from Kate McHugh (on the run)  & Ciara Storey and a rasper of a goal from Jenny Davis
Hannah Moreau , Sophie O'Riordan were among many of the stars of the day.

In the Red League Megan O'Dare met her debut in the Maroon in some style by notching up three goals and 2 points.
Great scores from all the forwards including Jenny Burke,  and some great attacking  play from the twin engines of Nicole and Lauren who both got in on the scoring .
Laurens practise on 65s paid off with a great score.
Tigerish defending from all our backs made for a great performance in
the second half.
Well done Girls


On to Sunday Morning where it was the turn of our U11 team against a great Bray Emmets team who made the Journey to St Annes.
The girls in maroon started in style and kept it up throughout the game. Molly Dempsey led the team from the start and her dynamic warm up had the girls ready from the start Mia Kirwan and Mia
Coffey did the necessary by providing the goals. This was a team effort with fantastic performances throughout the team. Well done girls, keep up the practise.

On to Sunday at 5 PM and it was the turn of our Ladies Football team and off we trek to St Patricks Donabate and on a tight pitch the Girls turned in an impressive performance.
Muireann Spillane covered every blade of grass and was ably assisted by a very talented Becky McMullen. Some great play from Sinead Ahearn set up an attack involving lovely football from Ciara Stack and Carla
and finished wonderfully by Alla. Great team work and determination saw us notch up a score of 4 goals and nine points.
Wow!!!!!  What a weekend and mind the Jersys girls and wear them well.

Also on Friday evening Sinead Ahearn and Caoimhe played with the U14 girls football.
Also on Sunday a number of 2001 were needed again to play an away game with the under 13 camogie red side.
 


Football League. Division 10:
  • Raheny:      1gl 10pts.
  • St. Finbars: 2gls 7pts.
A very closely contested game from start to finish, with the game level at half time and finishing in a draw. A  League table point gained by the home side, but will probably feel   outright victory  was allowed slip from their grasp, playing with wind advantage in the second half.
