They scored a goal and a point within the first five minutes. Mac Cumhaills were unbeaten in the league and they were determined to to keep it that way.

Scorers were Holly Gillespie 3-0, Chloe Kennedy 0-3,Amy Campbell 1-0,Laura Browne 3-1 n Rachel mc Gowan 1-0 This is an incredible bunch of young ladies, who train hard and play hard.

Sean Mac Cumhaills took on Downings on Sat evening in Mac Cumhaill Park. In ideal conditions, Mac Cumhaills took control right from the throw in. Stephen O Reilly slotted over a point after just 20 seconds. This set the pattern for the rest of the game. Downings never got going at all in this match.
Ht Mac Cumhaills 4-11 Downings 0-01.
The second half was more of the same.There were some good performances from some of the younger Mac Cumhaills players. Aaron Kely, Rory Dunleavy and Stephen Mulligan all showing well. The game ended 4-22 to 1-03. To compound Downings misery this result also relegated them. (please check)

Our U16 ladies travelled to Convoy yesterday evening for our second match in the group stages. We started of very well and built up a good lead, but as the game progressed Convoy came more into the game and it was very even until half time. We regrouped and came out strong in the second half and played some very good football and ran out winners on a score line of 6-5 to 1-4. All Players who travelled got game time.This was a good result against a very good Convoy team. We take on Glenfin next week and a victory would see us top the group. We would like to see all family members come out next week and support the girls.

The ladies championship came to an end on Sunday when they were beaten by a point by Naomh Connail in the second leg in Pairc na nGael. Our young side battled bravely to the very end and were very unlucky not to get a better result.
The minor board Family Fun Run/Walk also took place on Sunday and despite the inclement conditions, it was a great success with nearly 120 taking part. It was especially nice to see so many of the younger members of the club on the day, with Pauric O’Neill and Leeza Cunningham winning the U16 sections of the run. Much credit is due to Jamsie Boyle and Martin Doherty for their excellent organising of the event, thanks to all our sponsors, all the helpers at the various stations, Sgt Tony Arnold, Aidan Haughey, the ladies in the tearooms, anybody who helped out in any way and most of all thanks to all who braved the wet conditions and walked or ran the event itself, maith sibh uilig!
The U12s got back to winning ways last Saturday with a great win at home to Naomh Ultan. In what was a great team performance, it was especially good to see the younger members of the squad playing well.
The U16 game was called off last week, with it more than likely going ahead this week.
Tickets for the All Ireland quarter final can be ordered from Martin Carr, Seamus Kennedy or Kevin McGinley, orders must be in by 12pm this Wednesday.
Good luck to Paddy Byrne and the county minor team, as they take on Roscommon this Sunday in Sligo.

The U8s kick things off at 3pm followed by the U10s at 3:45 and the U12s at 4:30, following these youthful games some of the more ‘experienced’ members take to the pitch, as In The Hill takes on Out The Hill in a battle of former heros and legends!!! To round off the evening
Flipside will be playing in the marquee. Bigí linn!

Underage gaelic is on a break now for the summer and will return in September. The club would like to thank all the members for their support throughout the season and a massive thank you to the mammy’s for their delicious baking on Saturday mornings.
The U10 children did very well and were unlucky to go out in the semi final stages of the GoGames. A huge thanks must go to Billy Kelly, Shaun McClanaghan and Gemma Faulkner who managed the teams. The U8s enjoyed a full morning of gaelic football in Malin on Saturday morning in the GoGames finals. The boys were narrowly beaten while the girls reached the final, a fantastic achievement. Huge thanks goes to Maurice Harkin, Pearse Parkinson and Mags Mulhall for managing these teams.
Congratulations to all the 87 children who took part in our Cul Camp this year; it was a huge success. Credit must go to Head Coach John Gibbons for doing an excellent job with the co-ordination, and to all the other coaches who helped out during the week. The club would like to extend a special thank you to all the young players who gave up their time during the week to help out: Padhraic Skelly, Patrick Faulkner, Pauric Carey Doherty, Pearse Doherty, Casey Brown, Eoghan Gillen, Ciara Harkin, Emma Doherty, Niamh Mc Dermott and Allaire Mc Gonagle. We hope every player had a great week. Underage training will take a break now for the summer and will resume in September, we hope to see you all then!
Best wishes to Tony Mc Clenaghan and Ciaran Diver who will line out for Donegal in the All Ireland Minor quarter final against Roscommon in Markievicz Park, Sligo on Saturday at 3pm. It is a fantastic achievement for these two boys from our club to be involved with the Donegal minor squad and to have won an Ulster championship. The club is appealing to all members of the community and the club to show your support by getting your Donegal flags out on display for the Minor boys and the Senior Donegal men for the upcoming game in Croke Park.
SENIOR MEN - Junior A Championship
Naomh Padraig Uisce Chaoin 0-10 Moville Gaels 2-09
It was a double header for Moville fans in Muff this evening, the reserve team having been beaten by Lifford GAA in the 6pm throw in. The boys battled well in this Junior B championship game but unfortunately came out second best to a strong Lifford team.
The Senior Moville men had a throw in at 7.30pm, with Sean O’Hare taking over managerial duties for this important game; the Moville men having won both of their previous games against Letterkenny Gaels and Lifford. The heat of the previous day was s distant memory as the players and a good number of fans travelled to Muff for this encounter in near perfect playing conditions.
Muff got off the mark first scoring points in the 2nd and 6th minute of the game. Malachy McDermott turned his marker in the 8th minute and raised the green flag to put Moville a point ahead with a brilliant goal. Danny Murphy raised the green flag again within two minutes leaving the Muff keeper gathering the ball out of his net again after some great build up play. Muff #26 scored an excellent 45 in the 16th minute and this was followed by a point from their #12 two minutes later; this would be their fourth and last scores of the first half. John McGeady scored 2 points from frees in the 19th and 24th minutes of the game; closely followed by Maurice Harkin who took his point well in the 25th minute bisecting the uprights. Danny Murphy rounded off the scoring in the first half with a point in the 28th minute.
Moville came out in the second half and scored two quick but well taken points, James Henry sprinted up from defence to score in the 31st minute and Nigel McMonagle scored a well deserved point 2 minutes later. Muff regrouped and scored four points without reply. #8 scored in the 4th minute of the second half, #12 scored in the 13th minute, #26 scored a free from close range in the 14th minute and #26 added to his tally a minute later. Seamus Hegarty made his way up from defence to score a brilliant point in the 16th minute. #28 for Muff scored another close range free in the 17th minute and Muff scored again in the 19th minute. What followed was a great disciplined display from the Moville team, they held the ball well and passed it around the midfield and defence, always retaining possession and protecting their lead. John McGeady got his third point of the game with a free in the 25th minute and Moville played with most of the possession, and contained Muff until the final whistle in what was a mature and disciplined second half. Moville will be hoping to carry this momentum through into their next Championship group game against Convoy with the date of that fixture to be confirmed as yet.

As a mark of respect the club will perform a guard of honour ahead of his funeral mass in Saint Joseph’s, The Rock, assembling at his home at 11.15am on Tuesday morning. Aodh Ruadh extend our sincerest sympathies and condolences to the Malaniff family on their loss. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal.
The monthly club executive meeting takes place this Thursday, 31st July at 8.30pm in Aras Aoidh Ruaidh. All committee members are asked to attend.
The under 16 Southern Minor Board league semi-final between Aodh Ruadh and Naomh Conaill takes place on Friday 1st August in Father Tierney Park, throw in at 7.30pm. We hope to see a large showing of home town support out to get behind the lads in this big game for the club.
Aodh Ruadh put in a strong showing in the Southern Minor Board under 15 Óg Sport finals in Donegal town last Saturday. Ballyshannon won their opening game against Dungloe 3-5 to 4-10. They then had a good battle with Bundoran losing by 8-5 to 3-5. Then Aodh Ruadh beat Naomh Bríd 7-4 to 1-11 in the final round robin game. That series of results was sufficient to see Ballyshannon through to the semi-finals as best runner up after the group stages. The Ernesiders then faced Kilcar in the semi-final where the men from in through eventually prevailed by the odd point in a 5-6 to 6-2 scoreline. Kilcar then proceeded to defeat Ardara by a point in the final. The Aodh Ruadh Óg Sport squad was Conall Sweeny, Ronan McMullin, Cian McGloin, Matteo Rivenna, Paddy McCaffrey, Michael McKenna, Shane Dorrian, Pauric Keenaghan, Dylan Gallagher and Sean Taylor. The lads deserve huge credit for the way they played across the whole day. They fought to the bitter end and really did the club proud with their attitude and determination. The day was a great developmental experience for this group of players. We have some pictures from the day’s activities up on the Aodh Ruadh CLG Facebook page.
The under 12s travelled to Kinlough last Wednesday evening for a challenge match with Melvin Gaels. A great game of football was played by both teams in wet and difficult conditions. Very little separated the sides during the game, but at the final whistle Aodh Ruadh edged the game 3-12 to 3-10. The following squad travelled - Bridín Maguire, David Doherty, Kyle Murray, Daire Warren, Eugene Doherty, Daire Gallagher, Daniel Dolan, Matt Gillespie, Shane Duffy, Colm McGloin, Cian Rooney, Jake Foley, Kyle McCaffrey, Frankie McGinley, Corey Ryan and Conal Bradshaw. We play Four Masters in the league in Donegal Town next Wednesday evening 30th July. All players meet at Father Tierney Park at 5.15pm sharp. Don’t forget club shorts, socks and mouth guards. We are looking for parents to assist with travel arrangements to the match. Please contact manager to confirm availability to drive. Training continues on Saturday morning from 10.45am till noon.
In a change from the usual arrangements, under 10 training takes place on Tuesday, 29th July at 6.00pm. The under 10s will be travelling to Donegal town this Saturday 2nd August for a series of games with Four Masters. We will be looking for parents/guardians to assist with transport. All players and parents/guardians able to help with transport are asked to assemble at Father Tierney Park. We will be departing Ballyshannon at 10.00am. Games will be getting under way at 11am in Tír Chonaill Park.
Father Tierney Park and Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh played host an excellent under 8 blitz on Saturday morning. Teams from Bundoran, Four Masters and Saint Naul’s were in attendance with a high standard of football on display from all the young footballers. Many thanks to the Aodh Ruadh parents / guardians who once again excelled themselves with a great spread of food upstairs afterwards. Thanks also to our match officials Aidan Murray and Niall Murray who ensured the games were all played in a good spirit. The 25 young players who pulled on the Aodh Ruadh jersey on the day were: Killian Bradshaw, Barry Campbell, Eoin Cassidy, Tommy Clyne, Ronan Delahunty, Eoin Doogan, Liam Doogan, Stephen Doran, Cormac Finnegan, James Gallagher, Joshua Gallagher, Tom Holland, Donagh Kelly, Michael Keown, Hugh Óg Maguire, Jack McCadden, Cian McDonald, Ted O’Donnell, Garvey Meade, Tom Murphy, Conor O’Mahoney, Daire O’Mahoney, Cillian Slevin, Darragh Summerville and James Ward. We have some pictures from the blitz up on aodhruadh.org.
Under 8 and under 6 training continues this Friday in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh at 6.30pm.
On Thursday last our under 16s travelled to Letterkenny to play Saint Eunan’s. We were short a number of players due to holidays and injuries the game was played at 14-a-side. On a very hot evening it was hard on the lads with no subs, but they gave it their all. Goals were the difference in this game as the strong Saint Eunan’s team were able to find the net easier and ran out convincing winners 9-8 to 3-9, credit to our 14 players who never let the heads drop and battled away to the end. This Thursday the under 16s are at home to Letterkenny while the under 12s make the trip to Setanta.
On Friday the annual game between Ulster under 16s and Galway under 15s took place at the Connacht Centre of Excellence in Ballyhaunis, Mayo. Aodh Ruadh were represented on the Ulster squad by Brendan Gillespie and Oisín Rooney. Unfortunately due to injury Brendan could play no part in the game. Oisín was the only the Donegal player to start on the Ulster A team and was one of only three players not from Antrim or Down to make the starting 15. He scored two goals as Ulster were very unlucky to lose a great game 2-19 to 2-18. It was a great experience for both lads to have been selected for the Ulster Squad and to have attended the Elite Camp in Jordanstown and three training sessions since. We have some shots of the lads up on the Aodh Ruadh CLG Facebook page.
The fourth all-county blitz for under 8s and under 10s took place in Convoy on Sunday, once again Aodh Ruadh had the largest number of players at this blitz as they had 26 under 8s and 16 under 10s. The under 8s entered 3 teams and they all played seven games with varying degrees of success, showing great improvement since the start of the season and more importantly all had lots of fun. The under 10s continued their rich vein of form as they won all of their six games. Many thanks to all the parents who drove the players to the blitz, your support is much appreciated.
The fourth annual Peter O’Keefe took place in Ballyshannon on Saturday 19th July. This year’s tournament was organised by Ulster GAA assisted by Aodh Ruadh Juvenile Hurling Committee and without doubt it was the best tournament yet and a fitting tribute to the late Peter. Seven teams took part in Saturday’s competition Sligo (holders), Mayo, Roscommon, Derry, Tyrone, Donegal and South Ulster - a combination team from Cavan, Monaghan and Fermanagh. Donegal played South Ulster in their opening game and had a convincing win, they lost their second game to a very physical Roscommon team. They played their best hurling of the day in their third game against Sligo they turned over a four point deficit at half time to run out convincing winners. The host county topped their group due to their superior scoring difference. That set up a final against a very impressive Derry team. Donegal matched Derry in the early exchanges before the fresher Derry team, who only played two group games, ran out convincing winners. There was some great hurling played throughout the day. After the hurling Peadar O’Keefe presented the Peter O’Keefe cup to the winning Derry captain. The tournament is now firmly established on the Ulster hurling calendar. The Ulster GAA Hurling Committee has plans to make it a bigger tournament in 2015. Aodh Ruadh were represented on the Donegal team by Oisín Rooney (captain) Brendan Gillespie and Kieran Daly with all three lads playing very well.
Aodh Ruadh senior ladies second leg intermediate championship tie against Ardara was postponed as mark of respect to the Malaniff family.
The under 12 girls wrapped up their year with a blitz in Killybegs. Well done girls on a promising season. Alicia Clyne, Chloe Connolly, Síofra Hughes, Laoise Kelly, Ciara Lynch, Caitlin McLaughlin, Ruth McNulty, Bridín Maguire, Danielle Masterson-Burrows and Leah O’Brien. We have some shots from the game up on aodhruadh.org.

Hot on his heels is John Keon and his of team Lakeside Lads with 188 points with Last week’s leader Barry Travers and his team, Still The Greatest Reserve, on 187 points. In fourth place this week is Philip Patton and his team, County Colours, on 184 while Pat Gruddy and his team, Mayo This Time, round out the top five on 183 points. High score of the week goes to Trevor O’Mahoney and his team, Coolsense. He scored 23 points this week. Cork-10, Galway-10, Martin-3. With only six points separating the top five places, it will ensure a competitive run to the end of the competition. As always the leader board is available every Tuesday on aodhruadh.org, as well as Ballybookies, The Bridgend Bar, Owen Roe’s Bar and upstairs in Aras Aoidh Ruaidh.

The home side recorded a comfortable victory with captain Carlos O’Reilly leading the way. He was ably assisted by his midfield colleague Callum Friel and by the free scoring Calvin Murray up front. Overall it was a good team performance and a great reward for all this years efforts.
The second game was a closer affair with the boys and girls in Blue coming out on top. The home side battled hard with Joshua Bradley and Aoife Kelly showing well only to come up a little short. This team has improved immeasurably over the season and we are all proud of their great efforts.
