Father Tierney Park

Aodh Ruadh senior hurlers put up a spirited performance against Burt in the Donegal Senior Hurling Championship at the weekend, narrowly missing out by a point at the final whistle. From the outset, the Ernesiders put it up to the reigning champions and matched them for pace and tenacity in every position on the pitch. Aodh Ruadh hit five points in the first half thanks to Ciaran Kilgannon and Matt Ahern with Burt notching 2-1 in the same period. The second half continued at a ferocious pace with scores on both sides hard to come by. Aodh Ruadh drew the game with five minutes left on the clock, but Burt had the last trick up their sleeve with a well taken free in the dying seconds. Aodh Ruadh will feel they were unlucky not to come away with a win, but the experience of the Burt men was decisive in the end. The final score was Burt 2-4 Aodh Ruadh 0-9.
