Congratulattions to the U14 girls who defeated St.Eunan’s in a thrilling match last Sunday. The winning margin was only two points and the girls took the lead with their last score of the game. Every one of the girls played their hearts out and even with their backs against the wall, they never gave up. On behalf of Aoife O’Hare, Kathy McLaughlin, Jenny Craig and myself (Lynn McGuinness – coach) I would like to thank the girls for all their hard work throughout the summer. Thank you to Davy McLaughlin (club chairman) for organising our home pitches and thanks to the clubs who allowed us to use their facilities while Carrick Field was closed for redevelopment.

Moville minor ladies progressed to the county semi-final after a hard earned but thoroughly deserved win over old rivals, St Eunans in Letterkenny last Friday night. With the scores level at half time at 1-5 apiece it was all to play for in the second half.  St Eunan’s started brighter and led early in the second half by four points at one stage but Moville finished the stronger to win by four.  Moville used all five substitutes tonight and they were all required in what was a great all round squad performance. It would impossible to single out any individual performance such was the all round performance of the team, but goalkeeper Chloe Moir deserves a mention for her wonder save to keep Moville in the game at a time when Eunan’s were ahead by 3. In fact it proved the turning point in the game as it lifted the Moville team who pushed on from that point to win.

The senior men team defeated Robert Emmetts in Castlefin in the league. Robert Farren’s men have now won their last nine league games and will hope to continue this momentum with a genuine push for promotion from Division Four in the remaining games.

The U-16s championship play-off game with Naomh Columba was postponed on Monday evening, no refixed date was available at time of mailing.

The U- 13s eventually came out on top after a hard fought battle against a very strong Four Masters team last Saturday. Aodh Ruadh were very slow to get started with Four Masters taking a five point lead before Dylan Gallagher, showing true leadership, opened the Aodh Ruadh account with a great point from a long range free. An unstoppable Michael McKenna soon followed up with two goals and a point with Owen Doherty, in great form, hammering home another 1-1. Evan McTernan at full forward and captain Dylan Gallagher who got great support from Caolán Dolan and Darragh Ward put away another few points leaving the half time score 3-6 to 2-6 in favour of the Ernesiders.

The second half started with another goal after 20 seconds from Ballyshannon but Four Masters never let them get too far ahead with a lot of good scores at both ends of the field. A great display of football was on show for the remainder of a game where Ballyshannon finished four points ahead at the final whistle. Everyone from Aodh Ruadh had a mighty performance. The panel were Mark Gallagher, Adam Clark, Odhran Kennedy, Aaron Peach, Tiernan Dolan, Pauric Keenaghan, Senan Rooney, Shane Gillespie (0-1), Michael McKenna (6-1), John Connor McGarrigle, Dylan Gallagher (0-3), Owen Doherty (2-1), Darragh Ward, Evan McTernan, Caolán Dolan, Aiden Gallagher, Donagh McGowan, Mark Gettins, Mark McGlynn, Mathew McDonald, Philip Cassidy, Ryan McDonald, JJ Goan, Jack McSharry, Seosaimh McGee and Ciaran Hodgins.

Aodh Ruadh A took on the Sligo lads in the first game and Four Masters in the second game and had good tough tests in both encounters. In the the third game St Mary’s showed great class winning by 12 scores to nine against Four Masters.

Diarmuid Dolan did very well in goals for Aodh Ruadh, with Kyle Murray catching the eye at corner half back and Mitchel McLaugllin doing very well atcorner back.

Once again Cian Rooney shone at centrefield with Matt Gillespie also excellent up front. The reserves were minus a few players,however they gave a good account of themselves against strong Four Masters and St Mary’s sides. Stand out performers included Cian McKenna, Daragh Dolan, Drew Ryan and Oisín Daly.

The U-8s enjoyed the good weather last Saturday up in Ardara with a blitz playing Four Masters, Ardara and St Naul’s.s.

The U-16s hurlers had a hard fought win over Burt in the championship semi-final last Thursday in Fr Tierney Park. Aodh Ruadh’s ability to score a number of long range points was the deciding factor in this game and after a titanic battle against a very determined Burt team we ran out winners on a 3-9 to 2-6 score line. They now play a very strong Buncrana team in the final this Thursday. Aodh Ruadh are going for their third title in a row at this grade, but they will be up against their old rivals a very strong Buncrana.

The U-12s got back to winning ways with a victory away to Letterkenny Gaels last Thursday. Aodh Ruadh were on top throughout and ran out convincing winners 3-5 to 1-1. They have qualified for the U-12B final where they will play Buncrana in Buncrana this Thursday.

The U-12s girls hosted a blitz in Fr Tierney Park last Friday. The girls took on teams from Bundoran, St Naul’s and Four Masters. Aodh Ruadh gave a good account of themselves, Bridín Maguire was excellent between the sticks, and was given good cover by Sorcha Sweeny, Síofra Hughes and Caoimhe Sheerin. Meanwhile out the field Cáit Gillespie, Ana Keon and Caoimhe Keon all used the ball well took some good scores.

Paul Ward put in an impressive run to win the Aodh Ruadh 10K run on Sunday afternoon. The Tir Chonaill AC man finished in a time of 37 minutes 20 seconds, phenomenal going in what were extremely testing conditions. The first lady home was Julie McMullin who completed an Tir Chonaill AC double, crossing the line in 46 minutes 14 seconds.
