The Juvenile Hurling Committee will hold their first committee meeting of the year in Aras Aoidh Ruaidh on Tuesday, 25th January at 7.30pm. All attendees from our AGM, and anyone not currently involved who was unable to attend the AGM are welcome. We have one team management position still to be filled, and anyone with an interest in coaching and management of underage players is asked to attend. We are also looking for all retired hurlers within the club to get involved in our Sunday Mornings coaching sessions, if you don’t think you can commit to managing a team just yet, but would like to get involved we would be glad to have you on board for 2022. Finally, a call out to any parents who don’t come from a hurling background, we would still welcome your coaching involvement. We will be running a number of coach the coaches sessions through the year and this will help any new volunteers pick up the basic skills they need to lend a hand. For more information, contact John Larkin on 086-1076883.

Congratulations to the Aodh Ruadh players who took part in the recent under 17 challenge between Donegal and Tyrone: Tommy Winters, Mickey Doogan, Tommy Clyne, Cian McDonald, Matthew Tierney, Rian Kane, Caelum McNulty and Killian Bradshaw.

Last Week of Last Man Standing
The Juvenile Hurling committee with the support of Mr G’s are challenging you to test your football knowledge by picking a winning team for each of the seven rounds of the upcoming National League. There's €250 up for grabs, but the only catch is that you can only pick each team once! So, if you'd like to test your football smarts, just contact any member of the committee, or text or WhatsApp John Larkin on 0861076883. There are a number of ways to take part and pay electronically using Revolut, KlubFunder, and as always you can pay in cold hard cash. Closing date for entries is this Friday. Thanks as ever to Mr G's Liam Gallen for his sponsorship and his tireless support over the years. It's massively appreciated.

Exclusively available via the online shop is the boys and adults Aodh Ruadh Academy jersey sponsored by Kernan's Spar. Another online exclusive is a specially commissioned ladies training jersey, sponsored by the Creevy Pier Hotel, with LGFA branding. These are two beautiful pieces of kit featuring the classic green band and we are delighted to have both Kernan's Spar and Creevey Pier Hotel as sponsors of these items. There is plenty more great gear available to purchase at, with an attractive array of tops, bottoms, snoods, and kit bags to choose from. There won't any further orders placed in the next few months, so it's important to make use of this sales window. All gear is expected to be delivered in around six weeks.
