30 August 2016

Football
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 competition 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.

Hurling
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.

Ladies
The under 16s have a league game against Saint Naul's this Tuesday, 30th August. All players are to be up at park for 6.15pm with the game throwing in at 7pm. Training continues on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Under 13 girls have a challenge match against Four Masters this Wednesday. Players are to be up at the park for 6.15pm with the game throwing in at 7pm. Training continues this Friday at 6.30pm. The first match of the under 13 league will be away to Naomh Columba in Glencolumcille on Saturday. More info on Wednesday about Saturday's game. Given the changeable weather conditions at this time of year players should bring gloves, a top and rain jacket to training sessions and matches.
