U8 Report hurling v Whitehall
Great mornings hurling verus Whitehall Colmcilles. Pitch 12a in lovely condition. Good work from all the boys. We played half ground hurling and half from the hand. Joshua and Aaron did well. Ruairi got a lovely free from the sideline. Top marks to Conor Ahearne though, as he bagged a hat trick of goals.
Sam and Brian did well for Ciaran and Richards team winning both games.
We are contiuning to work on our Respect Campaign. Remember boys always shake hands with the opposition and referee to thank them for a good game. And most importantly always keep STRONG HAND ON TOP OF THE HURL.
Weekend off for Raheny 2 no game last week.
Extra Sunday Morning training started up on Pitch 1 (opposite Texaco Garage on Howth Road) this week. Smallish numbers but we got some good coaching done. Same again next week.
Hurling training at 10am pitch 1.


Match Report U14 Div3:
Raheny Vs Templeogue 29/09/2012 15:30 Bushy Park
The Raheny U14 Footballers were back in action last Saturday when they traveled to Bushy Park to face Templeogue Synge Street. With the Singers languishing at the bottom of the Division 3 League Table the Raheny lads perhaps underestimated the challenge that these southsiders were likely to pose. As a result Raheny had a slow and cumbersome start and consequently at half time found themselves trailing the opposition by a deficit of 8 points. Much of the damage was being dealt to Raheny in the midfield area. Acting as a third midfielder, Templeogue's No. 10 was insuring their dominance in the middle of the park. Having identified the root cause of the problem Raheny management sprang Ciaran Dunne from the bench as an impact sub. Charged with the specific duty of targeting Singers No. 10, Dunner performed his role to perfection, freeing up the rest of his teammates to get on with the business of turning the game around. What followed was a revival of Ryder Cup proportions. With devastating precision and ruthless efficiency Raheny rattled the Templeogue net no less than 4 times in the second half. The goals from Ciaran White, Mark Williams (2) and Stephen Allen, coupled with long range points from Shane Leahy and Fiachra O'Flynn, ensured that Raheny were right back in contention. Thanks to some quality defending overall as well as a couple of goal line clearances by Cian Storey Templeogue only managed a tally of four points over the entire second half. However, with only a minute or two on the clock and trailing by three points, Templeogue won a late free which they elected to drop from high onto the Raheny square. With the goal mouth crowded with both Templeogue and Raheny players it was a tense few moments for the Raheny side-line. However, it was young James Crehan who emerged, ball in hand, from the melee. With two Singers in hot pursuit James took the wise decision to clear the ball outfield, picking out Fiachra O'Flynn in the middle of the park. However, Raheny's counter attack was halted as the final whistle was blown heralding the end of the match and crowning Raheny eventual winners on a score line of 5-7 (22) to Templeogue's 2-13 (19).
