Aodh Ruadh's scheduled senior and reserve games against Glenfin were postponed. Aodh Ruadh reserves return to action this Saturday when they play Four Masters in the league at 6pm. The seniors will take on the Donegal town men the following Saturday, 20th July, down in Tir Chonaill Park.

It wasn't to be for Gerald McGloin's charges on Sunday evening as they took on Gaoth Dobhair in the under 16 county decider in Letterkenny. Aodh Ruadh were clearly showing the weariness of playing a bruising county semi-final which went to extra-time just 48 hours previously. In addition Gaoth Dobhair were not in charitable mood. Aodh Ruadh trailed by two goals at the break, but looked far from out of it. The Ernesiders did close to within four points of the Gaeltacht lads, but a couple of sucker punch goals ended Ballyshannon's chances, not to mention putting an unwarranted gloss on the final scoreline for the victors. The game ended Aodh Ruadh 2-7 Gaoth Dobhair 4-12, but nevertheless the lads can carry their heads high. Making a county final is a feat in itself, and there's no doubt this squad will have their day in the sun yet. Huge credit to keeper Aaron Horan for flying home early from his holidays to do nets. There was absolutely nothing he could have done about any of the goals. Colm McGloin put in a great shift in the defence, while the midfield pairing of Matt Gillespie and Aaron Neilan worked tirelessly. Some of Aodh Ruadh's best performances came in the attack with Marty McGarrigle, Danny Breen Brosnan and Damian Weber all giving their markers their fill of it. Mitchell McLaughlin also impressed on his introduction. We have a full final match report up on aodhruadh.org. The under 16s booked their place in the final courtesy of a rollercoaster one point extra-time over against Milford in Father Tierney Park on Friday, 6-14 to 2-23 was the final score. We have a great gallery of pictures from the game up on aodhruadh.org.

The under 14s made one of the longest intra-county journeys in the GAA when they travelled to tackle Malin on Monday evening. Unfortunately the 260km round trip won it on this occasion. There was just a point between the sides at half-time with the scores pegged at 2-6 to 1-8. Unfortunately the Inishowen men got goal-happy in the second half and the Ernesiders lost out on a 7-11 to 4-9 scoreline.

The under 11s hosted Grange on Saturday morning. Aodh Ruadh ran out winner's in the end of a good competitive contest. The boys really put in a team performance, with all 16 lads working very hard on the pitch. A very positive team performance. Training continues Monday and Fridays at 7.15pm. The team should have a game this coming Saturday also. Details will be notified to players in due course.

Under 8 training continues as normal on Friday from 6pm to 7pm in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh. The team have a home game against Killybegs this Saturday.

Aodh Ruadh under 16s made it two from two with a hard earned win over a determined Saint Eunan's outfit last Tuesday. The first half was evenly fought. Katie O'Brien settled the homesters with a point five minutes in, but Saint Eunan's levelled a couple of minutes later. A Sarah Jane Keon point was also quickly cancelled out. Points from Danielle Gallagher and Katie O'Brien (2) were then answered by a trio of scores from Eunan's to make it all square with the interval looming. A well taken point from Sarah Jane Keon gave the Ernesiders the slimmest of half-time leads. The Letterkenny girls got back to parity just three minutes into the new half. Aoibhínn McGarrigle clipped over two points, but the O'Donnell park outfit continued to battle back and going into the final quarter they pointed to leave the minimum in it. Aodh Ruadh upped the tempo heading to the final whistle and two quick fire identikit goals helped give the hosts a cushion they would maintain to the end. Lucy McGlynn laid off to Niamh Hughes after a blistering run and Hughes released Aoibhínn McGarrigle to blast to the back of the net. Unanswered points from Katie O'Brien and Caitlin McGarrigle and Aoibhínn McGarrigle wrapped up the Aodh Ruadh scoring, leaving them ten points to the good. Saint Eunan's did finish with a good rally of points, but the win went the way of the homesters after an absorbing and sporting contest, Aodh Ruadh 2-11 Saint Eunan's 0-11. Áine Hill had another fine game between the posts, while in front of her Eilish Gallagher was in exceptional defensive form. Caitlin McGarrigle put in another polished display in the middle third. Up front Danielle Gallagher tied things together really well. We have pictures from the game up on aodhruadh.org. This Tuesday sees the girls' first game on the road. They travel to Inishowen to take on Carndonagh, throw-in at 7pm.

Under 13 training takes place on Tuesdays in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh from 5.30pm to 6.45pm.

The under 12s had a very enjoyable training session on Tullan Strand on Saturday morning. They are in Belleek this Wednesday for a challenge. The game gets going at 7pm and players are to be in Belleek for 6.15pm. The next league game is this Saturday against Gaoth Dobhair in Father Tierney Park. All players to be up to the park for 11.15am.

The senior hurlers take on Saint Eunan's in the Junior Championship this Saturday in Father Tierney Park. Throw in is at 7pm and all support would be very welcome.

Aodh Ruadh minors are also due out in championship action this week. They are down to take on Dungloe / Gaoth Dobhair in Father Tierney Park this Thursday at 7.30pm.

The under 12s were in action at home again last Thursday against Carndonagh. The lads hurled really well against a physically strong Carn team and ran out worthy winners on a 3-7 to 2-5 scoreline. This enthusiastic squad have being working hard all season and it is encouraging to see such good numbers at this age level. They are away to Four Masters this week.

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

Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh Fitness Trail
It is great to see so many people using the new fitness trail facility at Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh. It is being used regularly now by all age-groups. For health and safety reasons dogs are not permitted in our grounds. This message has not got through to a small number of people. In the interests of everyone who uses our facilities and the people who work hard seven days a week to cope with all the activity and maintain the grounds, we are asking again that everyone complies with the no dogs rule.

Summer Camp
The Aodh Ruadh Summer Camp continues this week. There's loads to do with football, hurling, swimming, rounders, obstacle courses and plenty of other fun and games. Each week of the camp concludes with a sports day on Friday. The camp runs from 10am to 3pm and is open to all children from 6 to 14 years-of-age. Apart from being great fun, the camp represents excellent value with family concessions available. Children should bring a packed lunch as no one will be allowed to leave the camp during the day. No nuts are allowed as some of the children attending have a severe allergy. Remember sun cream for your child. Even in overcast weather burns can happen.
