    Club News

    30 June 2015

    Football
    Aodh Ruadh's winning run in division three was brought to an end in Father Tierney Park, after a powerful Milford side took the honours winning by four points. Aodh Ruadh lead by a point at the interval, but Milford were the more economical side in the second half and punished every Ballyshannon error. A disappointing 1-7 to 0-14 defeat for the hosts, but there were good performances from Johnny Gallagher at centre back where he got good defensive cover from Michael Ward and Callum O'Halloran. Meanwhile Diarmaid McInerney and Sticky Ward both worked hard front. There is a full report and pictures from the game upp on aodhruadh.org.

    There was better news for the reserves who easily disposed of the Milford challenge in the first game. They lead 2-7 to 1-2 at the turn-over and made light of the facing wind in the second half to leave the final scores Aodh Ruadh 7-12 Milford 2-5. Best for Aodh Ruadh were Matthew Maguire who impressed on his return to club colours. Ryan Patton and Darren Gethins also starred in the defence. At midfield Aidan Murray and Niall Thomas were totally dominant and the whole Aodh Ruadh attack with in fine form. We have a full report and pictures from the game up on aodhruadh.org.

    Aodh Ruadh's next round of fixtures will be on Wednesday 8th July when they travel to take on Naomh Bríd. The senior game throws in at 8pm and is preceded by the reserves at 6.30pm.

    Monday evening's minor championship game against Saint Naul's had to be abandoned after Philip Patton was taken to hospital with a suspected collapsed lung. All in the club wish Philip the very best for a speedy recovery.

    The under 14s will be travelling to a match in Grange this Wednesday 1st July. We will be looking for parents to assist with transport to this game. All players and parents/guardians able to help with transport are asked to assemble at Father Tierney Park for 6.15pm. Game at 7.30pm. This is an important game as it's our last before championship. Text John on 087-6431805 if help with transport is required. Training on Saturday at 11am.

    Aodh Ruadh take on Four Masters in the under 12 Southern Divisional Board League Final this Friday. The game is in Tír Chonaill Park, Donegal Town, with the throw-in at 7pm. Please come along and get behind our boys and help to support them. The more voices of encouragement they hear, the better their performance will be. The two sides played a very closely contested game in Father Tierney Park last Friday, so this entertaining game could go either way.

    Training continues this Friday for the under 8s and under 6s from the earlier time of 5.30pm to 6.30pm in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh. This is to give people a chance to attend the under 12 divisional final in Donegal town at 7pm.

    Euro-Shot Challenge
    Sheets will be going out over the next week to all underage players for Bord na nÓg's inaugural Euro-Shot Challenge. The concept is simple, points win prizes. The more points your team scores, the more chance they have of winning a special team prize. There are three prizes on offer. The under 8s and under 10s will be competing for a team trip to Castle Adventure Open Farm. The under 12s and under 14s will face off for a team outing to Bundoran Cineplex. Meanwhile the under 16s and under 18s are competing for a beach party and barbecue sponsored by Kernan's Spar. Shots are a €1 a go with the Euro-Shot Challenge taking place on Sunday 12th July in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh. The more lines you sell, the more shots you get. But the important thing is putting the shots over the bar, which makes this fund-raiser a great way to hone one of the most important aspects of our games. All players will have to take a minimum number of shots, so even if you only score one point, it could be the one that wins that wins your team the prize. There are individual prizes for the top scorers in each team, while the overall highest scoring team will take home the handsome Euro-Shot Challenge Plate. To make it easier to sell lines, there are also two tickets to the Ulster final up for grabs, with the winners being drawn on the day of the Euro-Shot Challenge, a week before the final. Our special thanks to Kernan's Spar, Eclipse Cinemas, Castle Adventure Open Farm and the Donegal Democrat for their sponsorship of this fund-raiser. Euro-Shot Challenge sheets can be downloaded directly from aodhruadh.org.

    Hurling
    The under 12 and under 16 leagues began last Thursday and both our teams were in action in Father Tierney Park. First up were the under 12s who took on near neighbours Four Masters. It was a young team that took to the field and despite the fact that a number of players were missing they put in a great performance. They showed great heart and discipline in what for many was their first competitive game. Every player played their part as they ran out narrow winners on a 1-3 to 1-0 score line. They are due to play Dungloe this Thursday evening in Dungloe. We have pictures from the under 12 match up on aodhruadh.org.

    The under 16s were up against Letterkenny Gaels in their opening game of the season. We were delighted to have 16 players togged out for the game. There was a very strong breeze and Letterkenny Gaels played with the aid of it and raced into an early lead with a goal. Our lads fought their way back into the game, displaying great hunger for the ball. We went in at half time leading 2-2 to 1-1. In the second half we were well on top and ran out convincing winners 4-9 to 1-1. It was a great team performance and it was very encouraging to see four under 14s make their debut at this level. This was a great start to the season for these very committed lads. It looked at one stage this year as though we wouldn't be able to field a team at this age group. We are due to play Dungloe over the weekend details to be confirmed.

    The minors face a very difficult trip to Burt on Thursday evening to play the home team in the championship semi-final.

    Best of luck to the Donegal under 21 Hurlers who play Longford in All-Ireland C quarter-final tomorrow night in Father Tierney Park. Throw in is at 8pm. There are five Aodh Ruadh lads on the panel Conor McNeely, Rory Cullen, Eddie Lynch, Ciaran Rami and Oisin Rooney. Kevin Loughlin is also involved in the back room team. Come up and support the lads as inter-county hurling returns to the Park.

    Training every Sunday at 12 noon for all underage groups. For any information required in relation to underage hurling please contact John Rooney 086-2587793.

    Ladies
    The Aodh Ruadh under 14s lost out in their A championship clash with Naomh Conaill last Tuesday. Aodh Ruadh started well, Cáit Gillespie striking the first goal of the game, but Naomh Conaill came back strongly and were winning at half-time. Aodh Ruadh made some positional switches at half time and they sparked a come-back. The hosts shot five goals to take themselves back into the lead, Eva Moore, Melissa McGowan and Cáit Gillespie among those finding the net. However Naomh Conaill finished the final quarter the stronger of the sides and went on to secure the win. Best for Aodh Ruadh on the day were Bridín Maguire who made a number of magnificent saves and used her kick outs well. Ella Clancy was superb at wing back, while Caoimhe Keon did very well in midfield and up front Shona Slevin put in a fine shift. The Aodh Ruadh team was: Bridín Maguire; Leah Travers, Alicia Clyne, Erin McGowan; Katherine McClay, Síofra Hughes, Ella Clancy; Leah O'Brien, Caoimhe Keon; Shona Slevin, Melissa McGowan, Roisín Daly; Alana Gallagher, Cait Gillespie, Dearbhla McGuckin. Substitutes: Eva Moore, Chloe Connolly. We have pictures from the game up on aodhruadh.org.

    The under 12 girls have a game this Thursday in Killybegs with the throw-in at 6.30pm. The team will leave the park at 5pm.

    This Wednesday the under 10 girls will be travelling to MacCumhaill Park, Ballybofey for a challenge match against MacCumhaill's. We will be leaving the Park at 5pm. Anyone who needs a lift should contact Gaby or Louise.
