Congratulations to Peter Boyle and his senior county colleagues on booking their place in the All-Ireland quarter-finals against Dublin this Saturday with a 0-21 to 1-15 victory over Cork.
Well done also to Nathan Boyle and Shane McGrath, plus Mick McGrath in the back room team on securing an All-Ireland minor semi-final berth. Nathan Boyle played the full game, while Shane McGrath came on and rattled home the goal which sealed the verdict in Donegal's favour 2-13 to 0-13. Galway now await in the semi-final on Sunday, 21st August at Croke Park.
No senior league fixtures scheduled this weekend with the All-Ireland quarter-final taking centre stage. We wish the county team the very best of luck.
While the county minors were shaking up Croke Park, our own minors were doing a pretty similar job in Father Tierney Park. They took on Kilcar in their championship first round first leg game and it was definitely a game of alternating fortunes. It was Kilcar who, with the benefit of a following breeze, took the initiative racing into a handsome lead, heading the homesters by 1-8 to 0-4 points with eight minutes to go to the interval. However Aodh Ruadh finally found their rhythm and tagged on a valuable three points before the break to leave just four points between the sides at the turnover. Ballyshannon came out all guns blazing in the second half and within a minute Oisin Rooney had the ball in the back of the net to commence a 1-5 unanswered scoring streak for the hosts. Kilcar came back into things as injury saw the Ernesiders lose Conal Sweeny and CÃ¡elÃ¡n Drummond. The visitors even managed to edge a point ahead, but Aodh Ruadh pulled the tie back level to leave it winner takes all when then sides meet at Towney in the second leg. Aodh Ruadh were once again well served by their county trio Nathan Boyle, Shane McGrath and Oisin Rooney, however Sean Taylor was absolutely superb between the posts and was man of the match by common consensus. That said, Aodh Ruadh were unlucky themselves not to find the net a few more times too, with the Kilcar framework being thoroughly tested. We will have pictures from the game up on aodhruadh.org later in the week.
Despite some good individual performances the Aodh Ruadh under 16s couldn't surmount a more cohesive and determined Four Masters outfit on Wednesday night in Father Tierney Park. Ballyshannon battled hard and took some nice scores from Evan McTernan, with Odhran McGarrigle also working hard to create opportunities, but the Donegal Town side's scores just came that bit easier and they always held the advantage on the score board. Further out the pitch Shane Gillespie was lively while Pauric Keenaghan, JJ Goan, Adam Clarke and the Erneside keeper all worked hard, but their individual efforts weren't sufficient on the night to take Aodh Ruadh close to a result. Aodh Ruadh are due to travel to Killybegs this coming Wednesday as the league campaign drawing to a close. We have pictures from the game up on aodhruadh.org.
The Aodh Ruadh under 14s had a tough contest against a physically larger Termon outfit in their county semi-final on Friday evening. Fielding without Senan Rooney, Shane Duffy and Cian Barden it was always likely to be a challenge for the Ballyshannon men, and so it proved when Termon went in at the break with a 5-8 to no score lead. The Ernesiders didn't stop fighting though and with gutsy performances from the likes of Mark McGlynn, Eugene Doherty, Cian Rooney, Kyle Murray, Jake Foley and Matt Gillespie they won the second half with the game finishing at 7-12 to 3-2. Aodh Ruadh's goals came from Mark McGlynn, Nathan Owens-Kelly and Kyle McCaffrey.
The under 8s took on Bundoran on Thursday evening in Father Tierney Park. and gave a great account of themselves. Thanks to Bundoran for a couple of well fought challenge games and to our parents / guardians who again put up a great spread of grub. The Aodh Ruadh panel on the evening were Gareth Brennan, Sam Davitt, Manus Conlon, Anthony Duffy, Antoin Duffy, Eoghan (Blake) Gallagher, Eoghan Gallagher, James Gallagher, Joe Gibbions, Jack Gormley, Fionn Hartin, Iarla Hartin, Sean Maguire, Eoghan McCadden, Oisin McCadden, Darragh McCready, Shaun McGarrigle, Harry McGowan, Jayden McGrath-Clyne, Sean O'Neill, Max Roper, Daithi Sheerin and Corey Sheridan. The results of the under 8 skills test were announced at last Friday's training following a closely fought second test the week previous. The section winners were as follows, 2008 Winners: 1st Joseph Gibbions - 113 points; 2nd Corey Sheridan - 104 points; 3rd Max Roper - 97 points. 2009 Winners: 1st Eoghan Blake Gallagher - 100 points; 2nd Callum Dorrian - 99 points; 3rd OisÃn McCadden - 94 points. 2010 Winners: 1st Darragh McCready - 92 points; 2nd Manus Conlon - 83 points; 3rd Anthony Duffy - 62 points.

The playing squad for games will be drawn from the 2004 and 2003 age groups, but 2005 girls are more than welcome to come and attend training also with the under 14 / under 12 competition to be played before the season concludes.
Aodh Ruadh's championship clash scheduled for last Saturday with Burt was postponed. At the time of writing there was no confirmation of when the fixture would be played.
Best of luck to the Donegal under 21s and especially our representatives on the team, Ciaran Rami, Matt Ahern, Tommy Gillespie, Stephen Connolly and mentor Kevin Loughlin, as they prepare to take on Kerry in the All-Ireland B hurling championship quarter-final this Saturday. It should be a real day to remember for the lads as they will get the opportunity to play in Semple Park, Thurles, with the throw in at 4pm.
The under 12s continued their unbeaten start to the season with a comprehensive win away to Setanta. The lads have won their five league games and are the league leaders. They have no game this Thursday.
The annual Croke Park activity day takes place on Tuesday 16th August an we held our skills competition on Sunday morning to select three players to represent Aodh Ruadh in Croke Park that day. The players selected were Aaron Cullen, Ryan Keenaghan and Danny Breen. Best of luck to the lads. We're sure they'll have a great day at GAA Headquarters.
Donegal minors lost out to Down in the All-Ireland B quarter-final in Letterkenny on Saturday on a 2-22 to 2-10 scoreline. Stephen Anderson lined out at wing forward and had a great game scoring seven points in total from play and placed balls Brian McHenry came off the bench in the second half and did well.
We're having our annual trip to Croke Park on Sunday 14th August for the All-Ireland semi-final between Tipperary and Galway. Full details will be circulated during the week.
Training at 12 noon on Sunday for all age groups.

Aodh Ruadh return to league action this weekend when Downings are the guests in Father Tierney Park. The reserve game gets going at 1.30pm and is followed by the seniors at 3pm.
We now have pictures from the minors' championship draw with Kilcar last Monday up on aodhruadh.org.
Aodh Ruadh under 16s had a tough trip to Killybegs last Friday to take on a strong Killybegs side, the Finner outfit running out 5-15 to 1-6 victors. Ballyshannon are down to entertain Dungloe in Father Tierney Park this Wednesday at 7.30pm.
Under 8 and under 10 training continues this Friday from 6.30pm to 7.30pm at PÃ¡irc Aoidh Ruaidh.
Aodh Ruadh lost out to Burt in their third round senior hurling championship clash in Father Tierney Park on Sunday afternoon. The visitors prevailed on a scoreline of 1-8 to 4-9, but this contest could and perhaps should have been a great deal tighter. Aodh Ruadh were down Eddie Lynch and Barry Farragher and played against a strong breeze in the first half. Those factors notwithstanding the hosts were poor in the opening 30 and went in trailing at the break by ten points. The second half saw an improved display from the Ernesiders and they pulled the gap back to four points with ten minutes left to play when a long delivery dropped into the area was flicked to the net. At that stage the homesters were dominating midfield with Chris Kilgannon, Ciaran Kilgannon and Cian Dolan controlling proceedings around the centre. However Aodh Ruadh passed up a number of easy placed ball opportunities and a good goal chance which would have turned the screw on Burt and the Inishowen men were able to push for the line and secure the win. Ballyshannon's best performers were all in the half back line where Liam Coughlin, Tommy Gillespie and Paul Sheridan showed the sort of spirit that was lacking elsewhere on the pitch. In the back line Jack Matthews did an effective marking job at corner back. Ballyshannon will attempt to get their first win of the championship when they travel to Letterkenny this Saturday to take on Saint Eunan's at 7.30pm in O'Donnell Park. This is a real do or die game for the Ernesiders and after so many hard luck stories, a reaction is expected from this group.
Elsewhere the Donegal under 21s with a strong Aodh Ruadh contingent of Oisin Rooney, Eddie Lynch and Ciaran Rami all starting lost out to a polished Kerry outfit in the All-Ireland B hurling championship quarter-final last Saturday. We believe this was a small bit of history with Donegal fielding in Semple Stadium for the first time ever in a competitive hurling match.
It was a quiet week in underage hurling with the only game being played an under 10 challenge against Four Masters in PÃ¡irc Aoidh Ruaidh on Sunday morning. It was the first action for these lads in a few weeks and they were very rusty. However, the longer the game went on they improved and at the final whistle were narrowly defeated by their neighbours.
The under 12s are at home to Buncrana this Thursday where it is hoped their recent good form will continue. Meanwhile, after a long lay off the under 16s are back in action, playing Carndonagh in Convoy.
On Sunday we have our annual trip to Croke Park for the All-Ireland hurling semi-final featuring the mouth-watering clash between Tipperary and Galway. This is always a great day of fun and excitement for young and old. For any information in relation to the trip contact John Rooney on 086-2587793.
Best of luck to the Donegal and Sarah Patton as they prepare to take on the Dublin in the All-Ireland ladies senior football championship semi-final in Longford this Saturday, 13th August at 5pm.
Under 16 training continues at 8pm on Wednesdays.
The under 13 girls had a good first run out of the season against Glencar / Manorhamilton last Friday evening. Two different teams played in each half against a Leitrim outfit preparing for their Community Games All-Ireland finals. Ciara Caldwell was excellent in defence as were Hannah Gallagher, Caitlin McGarrigle and Katie McMullin. Lucy Barden was superb in midfield with Dearbhaile Hughes O'Brien putting in a solid shift too. Up front Aine Hill, Lucy Gallagher and Laoise Kelly were among those doing damage. Under 13 girls training continues this Wednesday at 6.30pm. The team have a return challenge against Glencar / Manorhamilton on Friday 12th August. We leave Father Tierney Park at 6.15pm and will be looking for parents / guardians to help with transport. Text 0876431805 to confirm if attending and if you require a lift.

The very best of luck to the Donegal minors this Sunday as they take on Galway in the All-Ireland semi-final in Croke Park at 1.30pm. Good luck especially to our playing representatives on the team, Nathan Boyle and Shane McGrath, as well as Mick McGrath in the back room team.
2010 was the last time that Aodh Ruadh played in division two, but after six long hard years in the third tier of Donegal football Ballyshannon have finally made their return to the second flight with a 0-12 to 0-8 win over Downings in Father Tierney Park. Aodh Ruadh were quick out of the traps and had a seven point lead run up with 20 minutes on the clock. Downings fought back though to make the interval scores 0-8 to 0-5 and keep the result in the balance. On the mark for Peter Gallagher's men in a turbo charged first half scorers were Diarmaid McInerney (2), Seamus Kane (2), David McGurrin, Jason Granaghan, David Dolan, and Gillespie. At the start of second half Paddy Gillespie added a good score to stretch the lead to four points. but Downings kept in touch with two good points and could have added a goal but for a fine save from Peter Boyle. A Dolan free settled the hosts again, but that was quickly cancelled out by a short Downings free to leave the game at 0-10 to 0-8. Aodh Ruadh struggled to find the target for the final quarter, with a goal opportunity from Kane well saved by the Downings keeper. However Damian Cleary and Paddy Gillepsie stepped up and got late scores to put the game out of reach. Stand out performers on a historic day for Aodh Ruadh were the Jason Granaghan, Niall Harley, Paddy Gillespie and Diarmaid McInerney.
The reserves made it double joy for the club with a comprehensive 1-14 to 0-7 victory over Downings.
Next up for Aodh Ruadh is visit to Burt in the league. The reserves get the action underway at 5.30pm followed by the senior encounter at 6pm.
The under 16s came up short against Dungloe in Father Tierney Park last Wednesday, losing out on a scoreline of 1-8 to 0-17. The next scheduled fixture is in Fintra on Sunday 28th August against Killybegs.

The senior hurlers sank to a 3-18 to 1-7 defeat against Saint Eunan's in round four of the championship. They are due out in their next championship tie this Friday when they travel to Ballybofey to take on MacCumhaill's at 7pm.
The under 12s and under 16s continued their good form in the league last Thursday. The under 12s were at home to Buncrana and put in a great performance winning the game comfortably. It was an impressive performance and our first win over Buncrana at this level in a long number of years. They are home again this Thursday against Burt.
The under 16s played Carndonagh in Convoy. For a variety of reasons we only had 12 players, but they put in a great effort and ran out winners in a tight game on a 7-4 to 5-6 scoreline.
On Sunday we had our annual trip to Croke Park for the All-Ireland semi-final between Tipperary and Galway and like previous years we were treated to a classic game. It was a great trip and as usual the lads were very well behaved and were a credit to the club and their families.
Commiserations to the Donegal team and Sarah Patton who put in a good showing against a strong Dublin outfit.
Under 16 training continues at 8pm on Wednesdays.
Under 13 girls training continues this Wednesday at 6.30pm and Friday at 6.30pm. The first league match for the side is on Saturday, 3rd September, so it is essential we see as many as possible at training between now and then.

Aaron Cullen, Danny Breen, Ryan Keenaghan and Aaron Neilan were the lucky lads. Firstly they were taken on a tour of the famous stadium including the museum. Then came the highlight of the day two hours of playing on the hallowed turf of Croke Park. Hopefully this will be the first of many appearances for the lads there. It was a great day for the boys, one they will never forget. Many thanks to Peter Horan who accompanied the lads on the day.
The under 12s had another comprehensive victory on Thursday, this time against the youngsters from the famed Burt club. The lads put in a great performance where ever member of the squad played their part, the hard work being put into the squad by Denis Daly is paying off as they sit on top of the table and remain unbeaten so far this season. On Thursday they are at home again against Gaoth Dobhair.

Aodh Ruadh booked their place in the intermediate championship quarter-final draw with a comfortable 1-9 to 0-2 victory over an under strength Naomh Colmcille outfit in Father Tierney Park on Sunday afternoon. The Newtown men were clearly in the damage limitation business from an early stage and that contributed to a low-scoring encounter. Nevertheless Aodh Ruadh forged a 0-5 to 0-1 half-time lead and stretched that out over the course of second half to finish convincing winners, a Diarmaid McInerney goal erasing any doubt about the final outcome. Not a perfect display from Aodh Ruadh, with a substantial wide count to reflect on, but all the better performances on the day were from players in white and green. Michael Ward was magnificent in defence, reading play beautifully, while Damien Cleary, Paddy Gillespie and Colm Kelly all showed great energy and versatility. David McGurrin was another who got through a mountain of work up front and the subs all made a significant contributions on their introduction. We have a full match report up on aodhruadh.org with pictures to come. Newtowncunningham didn't have numbers for reserves so that fixture fell by the wayside on Sunday.
This Saturday sees Aodh Ruadh back in intermediate championship action as they travel to Dunkineely for their final Group B fixture against Naomh Ultan. The reserves get the action underway at 5pm, followed by the seniors at 6.30pm.
The minors first round second leg minor championship clash with Kilcar takes place this Friday at Towney at 6.45pm. The sides drew the first day out so this is a winner takes all match and we'd appreciate a big travelling Ballyshannon support in through. Training continues on Tuesdays at 6pm.
The under 16s have training on Wednesday at 6pm when we hope to have news on a fixture for our first round first leg championship game against Killybegs.
The under 13s lost their first game of the league campaign against Four Masters on Sunday evening in Tir Chonaill Park. The Donegal town men built up a big lead by the interval, but the second 30 saw Aodh Ruadh turning in a much improved performance to win that half. Training continues on Wednesday from 5.30pm to 6.45pm. Next of for the lads is the visit Bundoran to Father Tierney Park this coming Sunday, time to be confirmed.
The under 10s took the bus to Castlebar last Saturday with 34 players for a tournament hosted by the local Mitchel's club. The homesters had four teams, Ballyshannon fielded three teams, while Claregalway of Galway and Grange of Sligo both had two sides taking part. It was a fantastic day for the young Aodh Ruadh players with a brilliant standard of football on show from all clubs. Many thanks to the parents for their support on the day. That wraps up the competitive under 10 season. However there will be an under 9 blitz in Donegal town on Saturday 10th September so training continues for all players this Friday at 6.30pm.
The under 8s took part in the finals day in Ardara last Friday giving a good account of themselves at a very competitive blitz. This Saturday we will be hosting Ardara and Glencar Manorhamilton in Ballyshannon. The action gets underway at 11am and we will need all players up at the Park by 10.30am at the latest. We are hoping to do healthy refreshments for this blitz so if parents would like to supply fruit, rice cakes and other such healthy snacks - nuts excepted due to allergies - that would be most welcome.
Our under 8s and under 10s travelled to the Centre of Excellence in Convoy on Sunday for the all-county blitz. We had 16 under 8s and fielded two teams. Both teams played seven games and did very well, winning all our games. Our under 10s were missing a number of their older players, but they did well and tried hard in all their games. Thanks to the parents who drove the lads to Convoy and gave great support all day.
Well done to Nathan Owens-Kelly and Senan Rooney who were key members of the Donegal under 14 Development Squad who did very well in the All-Ireland blitz in Rathoath on Saturday. They beat Sligo and lost very competitive games to Derry and Carlow. The lads did well in all three games with Nathan lining out at full back and Senan playing in midfield.
The under 12s have their last game of the league this Thursday away to Letterkenny Gaels while on the same evening the under 16s are at home to a strong Setanta team.
