Football
Aodh Ruadh came off second best in their under 21 county quarter-final against Saint Eunan's in Convoy on Sunday afternoon. The concession of two early goals were heavy blows, and any thoughts there may have been of an upset against a side liberally manned with senior panellists was snuffed out with those concessions. Aodh Ruadh found themselves 4-5 to 0-2 adrift at the break Dylan Gallagher and Cian Rooney with the points. The Ernesiders went a considerable stretch of the second half without troubling the score board while Saint Eunan's steadily extended their lead. When Cian Rooney managed to clip over some nice points in the final quarter it was just a case of playing out time, Eunan's progressing on a scoreline of 4-10 to 0-5. Colm McGloin was his side's man of the match, with a courageous display around the half back line. A good display from Aaron Cullen helped keep mitigate the scoring damage wrought by the lively Letterkenny attack, while up front Cian Rooney did well with the very limited ball which came his way.

The coming weekend will see the conclusion of the 2021 edition of the Bakery Cup competition. The Cup finals will see James Monaghan's side taking on Eoghan Doogan's outfit. Meanwhile the Shield final between Morgan McNamee and Caolan McCauley promises to be a close fought contest. Keep an eye on the club's social media output this week for fixture details and build up ahead of finals day.

Coaching Girls in Sport
The Coaching Girls in Sport workshop has been developed by Sport Ireland Coaching to provide a professional development opportunity for coaches working in the area of sport and physical activity, and is specifically aimed at those coaching girls aged between 12 and 17. This workshop series is aimed at coaches working in the area of children and youth sport. Although the workshops have been specifically designed for those working with 12 to 17-year-old females, coaches working younger girls may also benefit from attendance. Previous coaching experience is required and candidates must have a foundation level qualification at the very least to attend the course. Sport Ireland Coaching strongly recommends that candidates complete the relevant National Governing Body (NGB) qualification before they start coaching in the field. Go to the Eventbrite website and click on the green 'Tickets' button to register for these workshops. The cost of the programme is €5 plus fees. The workshops take place on Tuesday 30th November and Thursday 2nd December from 7pm to 8.30pm. Participants must attend both workshops in order to gain certification from Sport Ireland Coaching.

Sports nutrition presentation

The working group is as follows: Sabrina Brosnan, Michael Daly, Sarah Daly, Tom Daly, William Doogan, Gerard Ferguson, Conal Gallagher, Johnny ‘Mannix’ Gallagher, Paul Gillespie, Jim Kane, Donagh Keon, Diarmaid Keon, Patsy Kilgannon, John Larkin Jr, Dinny Loughlin, Sylvester Maguire, Brian Murray, Val Murray, Mick McGrath, Packie McGrath, Pat McGrath, David McLoone, Philip McLoone, Pauric McShea, David O’Donnell, Sean O’Mahoney, Barry O’Neill, John Patton and Gregory Sweeney.

RIP Michael McCafferty
The club extends our condolences to the family and friends of Michael McCafferty on his passing last Saturday. Mickey played a central role in the capture of Aodh Ruadh's last senior county hurling title in 1977, putting in a starring performance at wing back. He continued his commitment to the GAA after his playing days, refereeing across the county for number of years. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal.

Premiership Snowball
Our Premiership Snowball rolled into match week two and after the first week bloodbath it was a rather less sanguinary few days for our competitors. Just three exited the race, leaving 126 still standing as we go into week three of the ten week event.

Christmas Market
The Creevy Community Group are having a Christmas Market on Saturday 4th December from 12pm to 4pm in the Creevy Pier Hotel. We would ask club members to come out and support this worthy cause.
