Football
Aodh Ruaidh have shown much grit this season, but none more so than in Sunday's victory over Killybegs, a result which catapults the Ernesiders right back into the promotion hunt. They defeated the visitors 1-14 to 1-10 on Sunday to secure a deserved victory in Father Tierney Park on Sunday. Aodh Ruadh had the wind in the first half, but Killybegs worked hard to minimise that advantage and went in trailing by 0-6 to 0-3. The third quarter was tensely fought stuff, and with the game into the final ten minutes there was just two points in it at 0-10 to 0-8 in favour of the hosts. Ballyshannon pushed hard for the tape with Michael McKenna putting Oisin Rooney through to hit the net and Shane Gillespie following up with a quick point. Hugh McFadden did notch a goal for the visitors, but with Rooney and Darren Drummond pointing again two precious league points were secured for Barry Ward and Philip O'Reilly's side. The team and scorers were: Peter Boyle (0-2, 45, 1f); Callum O'Halloran, Colm Kelly, Johnny Gethins; Shane Gillespie (0-1), Conor Patton, Sean Taylor; Chris Dolan, Eamonn McGrath; Philip Patton (0-4, 3f), Michael McKenna (0-1), Diarmuid McInerney; Nathan Boyle (0-3), Oisin Rooney (1-1), Shane McGrath (0-1). Sub: Darren Drummond (0-1) for McInerney 55m. Aodh Ruadh are now in a group of three on 19 points chasing the last remaining promotion slot to Division 1, Saint Naul's and Killybegs. Saint Naul's and Ardara are the last remaining opponents.

The reserves made it double joy on Sunday by claiming a 0-11 to 0-9 win over the Fishermen.

Sunday is now a huge day for the club as the seniors travel to Mountcharles looking to take a big step back to the top flight. Throw-in against Saint Naul's is at 3pm, with the reserve game getting the action under way at 1.30pm. This is sure to be a hard fought contest with so much on the line, so we really urge all Aodh Ruadh supporters to get along and be a 16th player for the team at Páirc Gearóid Ó Gallachóir this Sunday.

The minors are down to play Killybegs in the championship this Wednesday, at 6.45pm in Tir Chonaill Park. We would encourage a good showing of Ballyshannon support to make their way to Donegal Town and get behind the team.

The under 11s have a busy week coming up with a game against Grange on Wednesday evening at 7.15pm in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh being followed by the Willie Rodgers Tournament on Saturday at 10.30am.

The under 8s had a squad of 32 as they travelled to Dungloe last Saturday, putting on a great display of football in all games. This Friday at 6pm, they host Four Masters. All boys to be in Pairc Aoidh Ruaidh for 5.30pm. The team are away to Naomh Columba on Friday 30th August. Their final fixture of the year is a home blitz on 7th September, with Glenswilly, Four Masters, Saint Molaise Gaels, Naomh Bríd and Bundoran joining Aodh Ruadh in the season finale.

Ladies
Aodh Ruadh's senior ladies return to championship action on Sunday when they face Buncrana. This will be at a neutral venue with time to be fixed.

The minor girls won their opening game of the season against Termon last Tuesday on a scoreline of 5-13 to 2-10. The game got off to a slow start, but Aodh Ruadh took the first score of the contest with Emer O'Brien finishing a fantastic point from play. Termon responded with a long range free which just dropped into corner of the net. Aodh Ruadh answered with a goal of their own, a penalty which was expertly dispatched by Caitlin McGarrigle, low and hard into the corner. Ballyshannon pushed on from there to take a deserved win. Best for Aodh Ruadh was Cáit Gillespie and Caoimhe Keon who covered every blade of grass. Grainne Maguire and Ciara Caldwell gave a great defensive performance, while Orla Keon played extremely well despite the attentions of a tenacious Termon marker. Eilish Gallagher also did well in her duel with Jodie McFadden. The Aodh Ruadh team and scorers were: Cait Gillespie (2-3), Caitlin McGarrigle (1-0), Demi McFarland (1-0), Emer O'Brien (0-3), Caoimhe Keon (0-2), Ciara Gillespie (0-2), Eva Moore (0-1), Grainne Maguire (0-1), Chantelle Timoney (0-1), Aoibhínn McGarrigle, Clodagh O'Connor, Ciara Caldwell, Bridín Maguire, Orla Keon, Eilish Gallagher, Ana Keon, Katie O'Brien, Sarah Jane Keon, Caoimhe McCauley. The team's next outing is on Tuesday 27th August away to Ardara.

The under 16s are in action this Tuesday when Killybegs are the guests in Ballyshannon at 7pm for the last game of the group stages.

Our under 13s will take on Four Masters in the opening game of their league programme in Ballyshannon this Saturday. All players to be at training this Tuesday, on the pitch for 5.45pm to 7pm.

Well done to our under 10s girls who attended a blitz in Ardara and played in sunshine, rain, hail and wind, acquitting themselves really well.

Hurling
The under 12s finished their league campaign with a good win away to Setanta last Thursday. The lads finished in fourth place in the ten team league and have qualified for the B final. Their opponents have yet to be decided.

The under 16s are back in action this Thursday making the trip to Scarvey to take on Buncrana.

Underage hurling training continues on Sunday for all teams at 12 noon.
