Raheen GAA Club Notes


The numbers drawn in the Lotto draw which took place on TUESDAY 05 May 2015 were 02 14 26 29. There was No Jackpot Winner of €9,000 and No Match 3 Winner [Match 3 Prize Doubled to €400 on Monday 11 May] . Next week’s draw will take place in Hamilton’s, Geashill on Monday 18 May  2015.



Raheen were forced to postpone their Junior B Football Championship encounter against St Rynaghs last Friday night due to a waterlogged pitch in Geashill and the game will be re-fixed for a later date.



After a disappointing defeat in the opening round of the Junior B Championship Raheen Hurlers salvaged their season with a 2nd Rd win over Kilcormac / Killoughey last Sunday evening in Mountbolus on a scoreline of 1-10 to 0-09. Raheen playing against the strong breeze and driving rain in the first half were 4 points down before they got their first point in the 23rd min. Both sides added 3 more points apiece before the end of the half and so at the break K/K led 0-07 to 0-04. K/K were again first off the mark with a pointed free 2 mins into the second half but a min later Raheen were right back into it when Dylan Hyland’s shot for a point was knocked into his own net by the K/K keeper. 2 points for Raheen to K/K’s 1 had the sides level by the 10th min and this how it remained until the last 10 mins when a 4 point haul for Raheen without reply clinched the win.

RAHEEN: Eoghan Bolton, Craig O’Halloran, Fionan Direen, Sean Martin Pierce, Kevin Beirne, Paddy Rigney (0-01), Stephen Coughlan, Brian Corcoran, Brian Kennedy, Paddy Arnold, Jason Hassett (0-03), Ciaran Direen (0-01), Ian Buckley, Eanna Direen, Dylan Hyland (1-04).

SUBS: Ian O’Halloran (for Kevin Beirne), Dean Pierce (for Ian Buckley).
