~ SENIOR FOOTBALL ~
Aodh Ruadh had a great victory over Dungloe in the first round, first leg of the Senior Championship last Sunday. Dungloe started the game the brighter, but Aodh Ruadh gradually took control and were rewarded with a counter-attack goal from Pauric Buggy about half way through the first half. Ballyshannon missed a penalty with seven minutes to the break, but still went in 1-5 to 0-2 to the good. There was a second penalty for Aodh Ruadh after the break which Buggy opted to point, but the second goal finally arrived eight minutes in when Michael Lawless shot to the net. Following that Dungloe had a spirited fight back, but it was Aodh Ruadh who had the final say with Brian Roper and Pauric Buggy concluding the scoring to give Ballyshannon the victory by 2-11 to 1-7. Aodh Ruadh's scorers were Pauric Buggy (1-5), Michael Lawless (1-0), Michael 'Sticky' Ward (0-2), Shane Ward (0-2) and Brian Roper (0-2).

The reserves gave a good all-round display, but lost out to Dungloe by 1-10 to 2-6 and will need an away victory to keep their championship hopes alive.

~ SENIOR FOOTBALL ~
Buoyed by an win over Dungloe in the Championship, Aodh Ruadh hosted Cloughaneely in the park last Sunday. It was something of a curate's egg performance from the Ernesiders with good spells interspersed with lapses in concentration. Aodh Ruadh were three up at half time, but failed to utilise the substantial breeze behind them in the second half. However, Ballyshannon did enough to earn a 0-14 to 1-9 win. Shane Ward did well up front when he was introduced and it was good to see Brian Roper come on and motor rightly in the last 20 minutes. There was another welcome returnee in the form of Niall McCready, back from an injury that had him out for the past two months. There was another pair of fine performances from Stephen and Barry Ward in centre field. In the back division Johnny Gallagher was excellent in subduing the scoring threat of Denis Boyle, whilst Philip O'Reilly gave a fine display at half back.

The reserves slipped to a defeat against Cloughaneely, losing by 1-9 to 2-14.

The seniors and reserves are down to take on Malin at home this weekend, but at the time of writing there was no day or time confirmed. Watch local press for details.

On Saturday evening Aodh Ruadh thirds had a profitable Division 4 South trip to Towney to take on Kilcar. They won by 3-17 to 1-7, a result that sees them top the table and in with a good shout of retaining their league crown. It will be their challenge for championship honours that will be foremost in their minds come Saturday though. The team will head to Killygordon on Saturday evening to try and overturn a first leg defeat against Red Hugh's and force the tie to a play-off game with victory in Pairc an Domhnaigh. Throw in is at 7.00pm for what promises to be an absorbing encounter.

Bookings for the use of Father Tierney Park must be made in advance to Peter Conlon (087-6838024). This is critical to the smooth running of the park, particularly in the light of a number of recent clashes that have taken place over access. The help and understanding of all concerned would be much appreciated.

~ HURLING ~
This seniors' Ulster League campaign was concluded with a loss against Strabane Shamrocks last Saturday. The seniors are back in domestic league this Saturday when they are down for a trip to take on Four Masters in Tir Chonaill Park at 7pm.

Aodh Ruadh underage hurlers have just had a very busy weekend. On Saturday last the under 12s traveled to Carndonagh to take part in a blitz. They played three very competitive games, losing the first game to a strong Buncrana team by two goals. That was followed by a loss to Carndonagh by two points and in the final game they lost in a very tight match to Burt by a solitary point. The lads put in very hard-working performances all day and never gave up in any game. Their effort and discipline all day were a credit to them. Pictures from this blitz will be made available on aodhruadh.org across the course of the week.

On Sunday morning Aodh Ruadh hosted an under 10 blitz. There were over 90 young hurlers from six different clubs involved. In the first game Aodh Ruadh beat Letterkenny Gaels, the second was a defeat to Burt and the round robin section concluded with a draw against Setanta. Thanks to the referees, Peter Horan and Eddie Lynch; to Pat Melaniff for all his help and Eleanor Rooney, Joan Kelly and Kathleen O'Neill for their catering talents.

~ LADIES ~

Training times have changed to Tuesdays at 7pm and Fridays at 8pm.

The ladies county team takes on Monaghan in the Ulster semi-final this Saturday. The game is the curtain raiser for the Derry Fermanagh championship match. The ladies game throws in at 4.15 in Healy Park, Omagh. Good Luck to everyone involved, especially Aoife Buggy and Katie Flood.

Across the two games Kieran Keown and James Barron have been exceptional in midfield. Pauric Patton has continued to have a quite wonderful season.

Last Saturday saw Father Tierney Park play host to the under 10s of Aodh Ruadh, Bundoran, Melvin Gaels and Erne Gaels as they competed in the annual Mick Shannon tournament. Aodh Ruadh, Bundoran and Melvin Gaels competed in the 'B' tournament with Ballyshannon and Kinlough contesting the final. Aodh Ruadh did well to eke out a win by 1-2 to no score. Mick Shannon's wife Noreen was on hand to present runners up medals to a gallant Kinlough contingent while Aodh Ruadh 'B' captain, Garbhán McCloskey, was the happy recipient of the Mick Shannon plaque.

After a tight and competitive round robin section in the 'A' tournament Aodh Ruadh topped the table with Bundoran second, putting the pair through to the 'A' final. The final was a titanic struggle between the sides, but Ballyshannon clinched the honours with a late point from Gareth Sheerin. The final score was Aodh Ruadh 2-7, Bundoran 3-3. Once again Noreen Shannon did the honours and presented runner up medals to Bundoran, before presenting the Mick Shannon trophy to the winning captain, Shane McGrath of Aodh Ruadh.

Aodh Ruadh would like to extend their sincere thanks to Noreen Shannon for making the medal presentations, to the participating teams, to those who officiated the matches, those who provided the refreshments, the stewards and to all those who gave of their time and effort to make the event such a success.

~ SENIOR FOOTBALL ~
Malin's recent hoo doo over Ballyshannon continued last Sunday. There was a strong breeze which had a pronounced effect on play in Father Tierney. Malin used it to the utmost in the first half and went in leading by 3-3 to 0-3 at half time. A depleted Aodh Ruadh side had chances to get a result, but 2-6 to 3-7 was the final score leaving Ballyshannon rooted to the bottom of Division 1B along with Cloughaneely and Malin. The reserves got a draw from Malin, but merited the win on their overall performance. A late goal awarded to Malin was the subject of some contention. The final score was 2-8 to 3-5.

The reserves are in championship action this Saturday, 28th June at 7.30pm when they travel to take on Dungloe. The seniors championship clash against Dungloe will take place on Friday, 4th July at 7.30pm. This match takes place in Dungloe and a big travelling support from Ballyshannon would be a massive boost to the side's chances of completing the work begun with their first leg win.

The thirds drew with Red Hugh's in Killygordon last Saturday, but the second leg result wasn't enough to save their championship ambitions after a loss in the first leg in Father Tierney park. In an encounter that saw both sides finishing with 13 players aside Aodh Ruadh were well on top. Unfortunately composure in front of the posts was lacking and a number scoring opportunities went a begging. Ballyshannon battled hard, but Red Hugh's held on for a 2-4 to 0-10 draw.

The under 21s are in championship action against Saint Eunan's this Wednesday, 25th June in Father Tierney Park. The throw in is at 8pm. A good showing of Ballyshannon support would be much appreciated.

~ HURLING ~
Aodh Ruadh slipped to defeat in the second round of the Donegal senior hurling Championship against Four Masters on Saturday evening in Donegal town. They were beat by 1-10 to 1-8.

An historic event took place in Father Tierney park on Wednesday last when a series of hurling games between Creevy National School and Saint Joseph's, The Rock took place. John Rooney has been coaching in the schools one day a week since February in preparation for the games. Forty kids took part in the event with Creevy winning two games, The Rock one game and the honours shared in one game.

The seniors championship clash against Dungloe takes place on Friday, 4th July at 7.30pm. Aodh Ruadh have a first leg win under their belts and will be hoping to progress to the next round with a win.

There is senior training on Wednesday at 7pm in Father Tierney Park. The bus to the game on Friday leaves the Park at 5pm.

A 0-13 to 0-10 win over Ardara in Father Tierney Park last Sunday helped the thirds ease the pain after going out of the Junior B championship last week. The side were missing six players who started in the championship match, but the replacements came in and showed their mettle against and Ardara outfit featuring Damien Diver. The win puts the thirds top of Division 4 South with only matches against Pettigo and Glenties remaining. A place in the league final is tantalizingly close.

It was a lacklustre 0-5 to 1-15 loss for the under 21s against Saint Eunan's in the championship last Wednesday. The latest in a series of disappointments at this grade.
