There was a very good turnout in Geashill on St Stephens Day for the annual festive football challenge with a “Married” V “”Singles” selection of Raheen players past and present both young and old. Having had to be postponed for the previous 2 years due to the bad weather there was no such disappointment this time round.In the end it was the “Married” Selection that were able to claim the bragging rights as they came out on top on a scoreline of 4-10 to 2-12 showing that all their many years of experience was more than a match for the youth and pace of the “Singles” selection.


“Married” Selection: Pauric Pierce, Paul Garry, Brian Kehoe, Sean Gorman, Des Byrne, Niall Leavy, Shane Carroll, Garrett Garry, Noel Gorman, John Kirwan, Eddie Kaye, Pat Reynolds, Owenie “Bomber” O’Connor.

“Singles” Selection: Damien Arnold, Cathal Maher, Tommy Spollen, Paddy Rigney, John McEvoy, Liam Boland, Niall Dempsey, Richie Reynolds, Paddy Arnold, Padraig Bracken, Danny McEvoy, Willie Stynes, Keith Quinn, Matthew O’Byrne
