OsKaRs - What a night!
If ever an occasion lived up to its billing it was Saturday night's OsKaRs extravaganza in the Great Northern. Such a turn out, such style and such entertainment! The event would not have been the success it is without the help of so many people. The OsKaRs committee of William Doogan, Lisa McTernan, Sabrina Brosnan, Paul Gillespie, Andrea Gallagher, Gerard Ferguson and Siobhan McGarrigle would like to take this opportunity to express their sincerest gratitude and thanks to the following. First and foremost, our unbelievably talented group of actors and actresses. Their commitment, dedication and hard work has been immense from the very beginning of this project. It has not always been easy, but it has always been a great laugh. Many new lifelong friendships have been made. To the families of the actors for their support and patience. To all the extras who stepped into the various films. Many thanks to our main sponsor, EJ's Menswear. To Kevin Rowe events, working with Kevin, Rachel, Gemma, Conor, Chris and Anthony has been a pleasure throughout this whole experience.

ErnePrint for their help and patience in getting the brochure ready for the event and to Linda Clyne for her help with the brochure. To all who helped out in various roles, either leading up to the big night or on the night itself. We thank James Warnock who DJed the after-party. Thanks to Karen and all the staff at the Great Northern Hotel for all their assistance. To Pauric Bromley, Ocean FM, Michael Daly and Michael McHugh for their help with the press releases.

Football
Aodh Ruadh return to adult action this Saturday when Termon are the visitors to Father Tierney Park. Reserves go off at 5.30pm followed by the seniors at 7pm.

Aodh Ruadh opened their minor league on Monday evening with a convincing 6-11 to 1-7 win over Dungloe. A squad of 30 players were on duty as the side christened their new jerseys, kindly sponsored by CJ Farrell International, in some style. Aaron Cullen's kick outs were on point and the whole team worked the restarts well. Adam Clarke and Kyle Murray marshalled the full back line with great confidence and aggression, while there were powerful performances from the half back line of Mark McGlynn, captain Shane Gillespie and Aaron Neilan. As ever Odhran McGarrigle worked hard and foraged well around half forward and was a constant thorn in Dungloe's side. The partnership of Tiernan Flood Dolan and Matt Gillespie also gelled well together while Eoin Doherty and Cian Rooney linked well in the attack and caused plenty of problems for the Gaeltacht men. We have pictures from the game, and the new jerseys, up on aodhruadh.org.

The under 16s just had too much for Naomh Conaill when the sides met in the Southern Divisional semi-final in Father Tierney Park on Friday. The Ernesiders had the game more or less wrapped up by half-time and went on to run out winners on a scoreline of 7-9 to 1-5. Ryan Keenaghan at full back and Aaron Neilan at half back ensured there weren't too many crumbs falling Glenties' way. Kyle Murray and Matt Gillespie very much got the better of things in the middle third while in the attack there were nice scores from Cian Rooney and Mitch McLaughlin. We have a gallery of pictures from the game up on aodhruadh.org. Next up is the Southern Divisional final against Four Masters. That takes place this Sunday at 7pm in Ballintra's Páirc Naomh Bríd. The Ulster SFC quarter-final in Enniskillen notwithstanding, we'd like to see a good Ballyshannon support there to cheer the lads on.

The under 12s hosted Ardara for an intensely contested couple of games in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh on Friday evening. The senior game saw both sides fully committed in a match which ebbed and flowed. Ted O'Donnell was superb for the hosts in the centre of the field while up front Oran Gillespie took some really nice scores. Further back Corey Sheridan and Liam Doogan were both very steady in the defence. Ballyshannon would have been good value for the win, but it wasn't to be and the visitors emerged victors on a scoreline of 1-11 to 3-8. Aodh Ruadh fared better in the junior game where they had too much for the Pearse Park lads. Jun Hui Lin continued his fine vein of form with another strong outing while Dara O'Mahoney did a good job of carrying the game to the visitors. We have a gallery of pictures from the game up on aodhruadh.org. Next up for the team is a challenge against Saint Mary's, Sligo this Tuesday in Father Tierney Park. Players are to be at the park 6.15pm. The lads are back out in league action this Friday when they travel to Donegal town to take on Four Masters, first game getting underway at 7pm.

Our under 8 boys team hosted Naomh Columba on Friday evening. We had a panel of 45 boys, and four games were played simultaneously. There were some great displays of skill and determination which were enjoyed by the large turn-out of parents and supporters. The weather was superb and made it a great evening of football enjoyed by all. We have a great gallery of pictures of the action up on aodhruadh.org. Training continues this Friday at 6pm.

Ladies
The senior ladies lost out to Gaeil Fhánada in the Intermediate championship on Sunday.

The under 12s had their second league outing on Saturday when Saint Eunan's were the guests in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh. The juniors got proceedings under way. Once again Ellie Lilly was excellent in goals pulling off some fine saves. The half-back line featured two contenders for player of the match. Lucy Byrne was really outstanding with Ellie Brennan giving good assistance. In the attack Lucy Cleary was immense with her determined tackling a real treat to see. Sadhbh Hughes contributed well when moved back out to midfield while Rihanna Reynolds took her score well. The seniors enjoyed an excellent, well-balanced contest with the O'Donnell Park girls. We faced the wind in the first half and Saint Eunan's made good use of the elements to take a nine point lead in at the interval. The Letterkenny girls hit a further 2-1 in the second half, but Aodh Ruadh launched a strong come-back with some score-taking of the highest order. In the end it finished honours even, Aodh Ruadh 3-14 Saint Eunan's 6-5. Katie McGowan, Jessica O'Mahoney and Andrea Moore worked relentlessly in defence, particularly in the first half when the pressure was on. Strong scoring from Lauren Foy, Orlaith Gallagher and Pearl McHugh helped secure the Ernesiders a share of the spoils. Training as usual this Wednesday from 7pm to 8.15pm.

Under 10 training continues on Wednesdays from 5.45pm to 6.45pm in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh.

Under 8 training continues this Wednesday at 5.45pm in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh.

Commiserations to Caitlin McGarrigle, Eilish Gallagher and Orla Keon and the Donegal under 16 ladies who lost out Tyrone in their Ulster final on Saturday. Good luck to Megan Kane and the under 14 Donegal team who are in action this weekend in Annaghdown, Galway in the All-Ireland series where they will be taking on Fermanagh, Waterford and Tipperary.

Hurling
Aodh Ruadh seniors travelled to Omagh on Friday evening to take on Saint Enda's in the Junior Hurling League. This was a gripping encounter where the lead changed hand on numerous occasions and where the sides were level a number of times. As we headed into the closing stages of the game there was nothing to separate the sides, but the Aodh Ruadh lads got the last score to run out winners on a 2-13 to 2-12 scoreline. This was a tough, hard hitting and fair encounter where our young squad stood up to the physical challenge posed by the Tyrone men. We are up against table toppers Carndonagh in Father Tierney Park this Friday. Throw-in is at 7.45pm.

The minors travelled to the Cross on Sunday to play Dungloe / Gaoth Dobhair in the B league final. When these sides met in the opening game of the league the west Donegal lads inflicted a 31 point trouncing on our very young squad. Lesser teams would have thrown in the towel at that stage, but the lads fielded week after week with small numbers and continued to work hard and improve. They had some good performances along the way including a couple of great wins over Burt which saw them make the final. Of the 17 lads who travelled on Sunday nine of them were under 16. They were determined to give it all they had to claim the title. We trailed at half time by five points, 2-5 to 0-6, but the lads still believed they could claim the silverware. They put in a storming second half and fought for every ball and never gave up and after five agonising minutes of injury time they claimed the league title 3-12 to 2-13. There were great celebrations among the players and the loyal supporters who stood by the lads all year. County Hurling Secretary Paddy Lennon presented the cup to captain Adam Rami who gave a rousing speech to match his performance on the field.

The under 14s travelled to Burt for their final league game last Thursday and came home with the points to secure their place in the A final against Carndonagh. The final is on Thursday evening in Carn where the lads will be hoping to retain their league title.

Well done to John Larkin and his under 8 squad who did very well at their second blitz of the year in Convoy on Sunday.

Aodh Ruadh under 14 hurlers are heading to Cork for the Féile na nGael National Finals on the weekend of 7th to 9th June. Our main fund-raiser for this trip will be our annual clothes collection. All unwanted clothes, shoes, bags and belts are welcome. No duvets or pillows please.
