On Sunday week, the club hosts the 30th annual AXA Raheny 5 road race and walk together with three juvenile races. This is the our biggest annual promotion and is a mammoth undertaking which requires months of planning. The club is fortunate that the other sporting and community organisations in the area, in particularly Raheny GAA club, Raheny United FC, the Cara Hall and Scoil Aine make their facilities available to us on race weekend.

It requires a minimum of 200 individuals to ensure the smooth and safe running of the event. The race does not belong to any one section of the club. Every club member benefits from the race and this is your opportunity to give something back to the club. Help is needed on Saturday from 1pm for the bag pack and then on Sunday from 8am through to 6.30pm.

Please do not leave it to other to shoulder all the responsibility. This year we are holding a special meeting for all those willing to help on next Thursday night (January 23rd) in the clubhouse at 8.30pm in order to co-ordinate everything. If you cannot make the meeting please contact Sean at 087 2248274 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  Thank you.

Ethan Bannon named as AAI Dublin Juvenile Star 2013 PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 17 January 2014 22:43

SIXTEEN year old Ethan Bannon (right & centre) has been named by AAI as their 2013 Dublin Juvenile star. This is a particularly prestigious award to win; particularly so for a Dublin based athlete as a significant percentage of the total number of juvenile athletes in the country are affiliated to Dublin based clubs.

Ethan's initial introduction to athletics came while he was in junior infants in St Andrew's primary school in Malahide. As part of the school's PE programme, athletics is provided weekly to students by Raheny Shamrock AC through our schools' athletics programme. By the time he was in fifth class Ethan had begun to display his athletic talents.

His first introduction to athletic competition came in the Cumann na mBunscoil primary school sports where he proudly represented St. Andrew’s in the various disciplines: sprints, hurdles, high jump, shot putt and relays, whilst also medalling in the various events.  Ethan is now a fourth year pupil in Belvedere College; he continues to represent his school at local and national level. He joined Raheny Shamrock AC three years ago and continues with intensive training in the various disciplines which form the Combined Events.

Raheny women to the fore at Dublin Masters CC PDF Print E-mail

ELISH Kelly made a memorable Masters debut when she secured a runaway win in today's Dublin Masters' cross country championships which attracted record fields. The rain stayed away and in surprisingly firm underfoot conditions Elish quickly established a big lead over veteran club mate Annette Kealy in the 3km race.A selection of the Raheny medal winners at today's Dublin Masters CC

Kelly won the race  to take gold in the U-35 category while Annette was second overall and first in the 0 45 category. The exploits of the two girls left the Raheny women in a strong position in the team event; backed up by excellent performances from Brid Ni Chonaill and Orla Gormley - who was third in the individual 045 category - the Raheny team captured the gold medal for the first time in these championships.

In the 050 individual category Fiona Kirwan was second overall while Bernie Manley was third but unfortunately there wasn't sufficient runners to make up a team. In the 0 65 individual category June Comiskey took the gold medal.

In the men's 6km race Brian Leahy led in the early stages of the four lap race but eventually had to be content with an individual bronze medal. There was a terrific battle for gold with John Dunne (Dunore Harriers) overtaking Paul Fleming (Rathfarnham) in the closing stages to take the win. The standard of racing was exceptional high and despite sterling performance from the home team they finished outside the medals.

Brian Kelly had a terrific battle thoughout the race with Paul Cowhie (Civil Service) for the gold medal in the 0 45 category but in the end Brian had to be content with the silver.

However, the men's 0 50 team created club history by winning silver - their first ever team medal in this category. Tom Loftus ran exceptionally well to lead home his team mates, John Freir, Martin Kelly and Seamus Rooney. Ray McCormack won an individual silver in the 0 65 category to bring his tally of championship medals to a remarkable 18.

This was the third year in a row that the club has hosted these championship; many thanks to St Anne's for providing such a wonderful facility and to the club members who built and later removed the course; stewarded the race and did the catering in Raheny GAA Club.

Eoin Fegan was on camera duty. This is his selection of pictures from the two races:
