Club News

28 June 2016

Football
Well done to the Donegal minors and our representatives on the team, Nathan Boyle, Shane McGrath and Oisin Rooney, on a convincing 3-15 to 2-12 victory in the Ulster MFC semi-final in Breffni Park on Saturday evening. They will face Derry in the Ulster final on Sunday July 17th. We also wish Peter Boyle and his senior colleagues the very best of luck when they look to finish the job against the Farney men back in Breffni this Saturday, throw-in 7pm.

Aodh Ruadh were down to face Naomh Ultan this Saturday, but with the Ulster SFC replay on Saturday that will be rescheduled. Keep an eye on the club Facebook page for updates on that one.

Aodh Ruadh under 21s are out in the first round of the championship this Wednesday at 7.30pm away to Cloughaneely. Good luck to manager James O'Donnell and the team. All support would be very much appreciated.

The minors will be out against Kilcar in their first round, first leg championship opener next Monday, 4th July. Throw in at Towney will be 7.30pm.

The under 12 Southern Board League Final against Dungloe takes place on Saturday morning in Dungloe with the first game throwing in at 11am. Players and parents / guardian are to meet at the Park at 9am to arrange transport with departure for Dungloe at 9.15am. We'd encourage as big a Ballyshannon support as possible to make the trip down to get behind the boys as the bid bring silverware back Erneside. Training on Friday will just be from 5.15pm to 6.15pm.

Under 10, under 8 and under 6 training continues as usual this Friday from 6.30pm to 7.30pm at Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh. This Friday's session will be the last under 6 training session of the year and will go ahead irrespective of weather conditions. This will be followed by prize-giving so we'd like to have all players present.

Donegal Children's Board invite all members who wish to have an input to be part of the upcoming Workshops. These will be set up in the next few weeks to identify areas for restructure and modification for all youth games and activities in Donegal from 2017 to 2022. The areas identified for consideration so far are: 1 Competitions; 2 Coaching; 3 Administration; 4 Public Relations; and 5 Recruitment of referees. If any Children's Board members wish to become involved in any of the proposed Workshops please notify Chairman Mick McGrath as soon as possible.

A referee training course has been fixed for Friday 8th July. The course lasts three hours from 7pm to 10pm. The Southern Board are having difficulties with the shortage of referees so we urge to club members to consider attending this course.

The underage footballers will are busy filling their Euroshot Challenge cards and honing their shooting as the days count down to the big event on Saturday July 10th. Please support generously.

Ladies
There will be an under 14 challenge match against Glenfin on Tuesday at 7.30pm in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh. Players are to be at the dressing rooms for 6.45pm.

Under 12 girls training continues this Thursday 6pm and Saturday 10am.

Under 8 and under 10 training continues at Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh on Mondays from 6-7pm.

Hurling
Aodh Ruadh sank to a morale sapping 1-3 to 3-14 in defeat Ulster Táin League Division 2B against Sean Treacy's on a wet Sunday morning in Garvaghey. Aodh Ruadh trailed by 0-6 to 0-2 coming up to the interval, but a sloppy goal left the Ernesiders playing catch-up. Things fell apart in second half as many players let the game pass them by and there was considerable wastefulness in front of the posts. Anthony Coughlin was Ernesider's most economic player and he struck for goal in the second half. Ballyshannon fielded short a number of players, but the team available on the night will be disappointed with their performance. This Sunday sees Aodh Ruadh on the road yet again as they travel to Letterkenny to take on Saint Eunan's at 4pm in the Ulster Táin League. That will be the last game ahead of the senior championship opener Buncrana the week following.

Congratulations to Paul Sheridan and the Donegal senior hurlers who beat Monaghan 5-13 to 2-14 to win the Ulster SHC Shield final.

Best of luck to the Donegal under 21s who are out against Tyrone in Letterkenny on Saturday in the All-Ireland C Hurling Championship. Aodh Ruadh are well represented in the squad with Kevin Loughlin involved in the management and Tommy Gillespie, Ciaran Rami, Eddie Lynch Jr, Stephen Connolly and Matt Ahern all part of the panel. Throw-in is at 2pm in Letterkenny.

The under 12 and under 16 leagues began last week. On Thursday the under 16s were at home to Letterkenny Gaels. Injuries and holidays meant we only had the bare minimum of 11 players. But these 11 lads showed great commitment and fought for every ball and despite being up against a physically stronger Letterkenny team they ran out worthy winners 1-10 to 0-4. We'll have pictures from this game up on aodhruadh.org over the course of the week. With such a small panel we are in for a difficult season, but hopefully we'll field for all the games. This Thursday we're away to a strong Four Masters team.

The under 12s travelled to Carndonagh on Friday evening with a panel of 17. Seven of these lads have been playing with the under 14s this season and the experience they gained from that showed and was a great benefit to the squad as they ran out convincing winners over the Carn lads.

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