    Football
    It was a productive trip to Milford on Monday afternoon our sides returning with three of the four points on offer. The seniors recorded a 1-14 to 1-7 win over pace setters in division three, while reserves came from behind to tie their game at 1-8 apiece and earn a draw.

    Next up for Aodh Ruadh's is the local derby with Naomh Bríd on Sunday in Father Tierney Park. The reserve games throws in at 1.30pm, and is followed by the seniors at 3pm.

    Aodh Ruadh under 16s beat Naomh Muire on Wednesday night 2-17 to 2-13. It was an open game and there was never more than four points between the teams. Goals by Conall Sweeny and Shane Dorrian were taken well while Ronan McMullin and Cian McGloin emptied the tank. The victory means Aodh Ruadh finish on top of the group and have home advantage for the divisional semi-final on Tuesday May 12th.

    The under 14s had a chastening trip to Glenties on Friday evening. Playing against the wind in the first half Ballyshannon were held scoreless. In the second half the visitors got a little more attacking joy and had points from the boot of captain Eoin Doherty (0-4), Shane Gillespie (0-2) and Adam Rami (0-1). The players were asked for personal performances before the game and despite the sizeable losing margin, the team battled to the end. Among the best for Aodh Ruadh on the night were Adam Clarke and Niall Monaghan in defence, Shane Gillespie in midfield and Eoin Doherty. They are at home this Wednesday 6th May, when we host Belcoo for a challenge at 7.15pm in Father Tierney Park. All players to be at the park for 6.30pm.

    Under 10 and under 12 training continues on Wednesdays from 6pm to 7pm and Mondays from 6pm to 7pm.

    Training continues this Friday for the under 8s and under 6s from 6.30pm to 7.30pm in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh. The under 8s will have their first blitz of the season on Saturday morning in Mountcharles. The first games throwing in at 11am. As many parents as possible should come along to ensure we have lifts for all the players. Assemble at the park for 10am, departing at 10.15am. All players must wear gum shields and have club socks and shorts.

    Hurling
    Our under 14s had another difficult assignment last week in the league with a home game against Buncrana. Buncrana raced into an early lead and led after 20 minutes 0-5 to 0-0. Aodh Ruadh then hit a purple patch coming up to half-time scoring three points in a row to leave the half time score 0-5 to 0-3. That was as good as it got as the Inishowen men dominated the second half and were on top all over the field, they ran out convincing winners on a 3-14 to 0-3 score line. The lads are away to Letterkenny Gaels this week, and it's hoped they'll put in a much-improved performance.

    Donegal Underage Development Squads were in action in Owenbeg on Saturday in the first inter county blitzes of the season and Aodh Ruadh were well represented in all squads. Eoin Doherty and Adam Rami were our representatives on the under 14 squad, Liam O'Sullivan was our sole representative on the under 15 squad, while Conall Sweeney, Stephen Anderson and Brian McHenry were on the under 16 squad. All the lads did very well and it was a great experience for them to play the likes of Antrim, Down and Derry.

    On Monday we hosted the annual Alan Ryan / Seamus Grimes under 16 tournament. In existence since 1998 this tournament is one of the most prestigious tournaments in Ulster. Five teams took part in this year's event, Cushendall (Antrim) Abbeyknockmoy (Galway) Éire Óg (Tyrone) Easkey (Sligo) and Padraig Pearse's (Roscommon), the weather was very poor over the weekend and this tournament was played in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh and Bundoran. We were very grateful to be able to get the use of Bundoran's pitch for this tournament. We had five teams, so the format was round robin with each team playing each other, and the top two finishers playing off for the Alan Ryan cup, while 3rd and 4th play off for the Seamus Grimes trophy. Round 1 saw wins for Cushendall over Abbeyknockmoy and Easkey over Carrickmore.
    Round 2 saw a draw between Pearse's and Carrickmore while Cushendall had a narrow win over Easkey 1-5 to 1-3.
    Round 3 saw Easkey continue their good form with a win over Abbeyknockmoy, and the men from the Glens of Antrim, Cushendall had their third win of the day over Pearses.
    Round 4 had a big win for Cushendall in their final group game over Carrickmore, while Pearses had a very important win over Abbeyknockmoy.
    The final round of the round robin section saw wins for Easkey over Pearses and Abbeyknockmoy over Carrickmore. The stage was now set for our two finals, the Seamus Grimes final saw a Connacht derby between Abbeyknockmoy and Padraig Pearse's. The Galway lads managed by former Galway All-Ireland Medal winner and current Leitrim coach Michael Coleman, started the game in a very determined fashion and hit the Roscommon lads for three quick goals, their dominance continued in the second half but great credit to Padraig Pearse's who Ó Dálaigh winners Easkey in a brilliant final. As the weather deteriorated these two very evenly matched sides produced a classic. There was very little between them as Easkey led 0-4 to 0-2 at half time, the west Sligo men got a great goal early in the second half but Cushendall replied very quickly with a goal of their own. It was nip and tuck from there to finish. Cushendall were very unlucky to have a ball cleared off the line and at the final whistle Easkey were narrow but deserving winners 2-5 to 2-3 and so the curtain came down on a great day's hurling.
    From the battle field of Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh it was up to Aras Aoidh Ruaidh where the Ryan and Grimes families had laid on a mountain of food for all. Chairman of Aodh Ruadh Juvenile Hurling Committee John Rooney welcomed all, he thanked the Ryan and Grimes families for all their support with this tournament, he thanked all the teams who took part and complimented them on their displays throughout the day. He thanked Aodh Ruadh Park Committee for the use of Pairc Aoidh Ruaidh and he thanked Bundoran for providing their pitch at very short notice. He thanked all who had worked from early in the morning especially PJ and Orlaith Gillespie in an effort to make Father Tierney Park playable. He called on Eddie Grimes son of the late Seamus to present the Seamus Grimes Trophy. Eddie spoke of how proud his family are of this tournament, of the high standard of hurling and he thanked all involved in organising it, he then presented the trophy to a delighted Abbeyknockmoy captain. John Rooney thanked the referees John Doyle and Peter Horan who he said did a great job, he thanked Pauric Keenaghan and Mike Lynch who did great work co-ordinating the games in Bundoran and umpiring same, he also thanked all who had acted as linesmen and umpires in Ballyshannon. Martin Ryan father of the late Alan, thanked all the clubs who attended and said all were winners on the day, he thanked all who had organised the day and thanked all the ladies who had catered for all the teams. He then presented the runners up medals to Cushendall before presenting the Alan Ryan Cup to first time winners Easkey, and so came an end to another great days hurling to remember two former club men and their families.

    Training as normal for all age groups on Sunday at 12 noon.
