Early on the game remained quite tight, but Aodh Ruadh started to take charge mid way through the first half and remained in charge for the remainder of the game. In goals Bridín Maguire was excellent pulling off some great saves. In the full back line Daniel Dolan and Philip Cassidy were rock solid, while our half backs of Daire Gallagher, Senan Rooney and Colm McGloin covered every blade of grass. In midfield Mark McGlynn and Calum Ayres supported both their backs and forwards. In the half forward line Daire Warren, Harry Howarth and Shane Whelan created great space and never stopped working. Up top Cian Rooney and Mitch McLoughlin lead the line with great pace. A number of strong substitutes were made early in the second half with Jake Foley, Diarmaid Flood Dolan, Kyle McCaffrey and Shane Duffy, coming on up front and Conal Bradshaw, Frankie McGinley, Adam Hoey and Nathan Owens Kelly coming on in defence. The final scoreline was 4-15 to 1-5 in favour of Aodh Ruadh. Great work rate and commitment shown from all the players on display.

Moville had never won an under 16 a title at Inishowen level until Sunday evening in Burt. Credit must go to a gutsy second half when Muff went six points up Moville never gave up and cam e back into the game to win by the narrowest of margins. It was a low scoring first half in Muff. Moville had a great opportunity for a goal from throw in but it hit the upright. It took ten minutes before the first point was registered and it was Muff. Moville scored four consecutive points from Gareth Foynes, Pauric Gillen, Padhraig Skelly and Patrick Faulkner, before Muff replied with three in a row to level the match once again. Patrick Faulkner slotted over a free on the 29th minute and Muff scored on the 32nd minute to leave it five points each at half time. Muff started brilliantly and shocked the Moville boys by scoring a goal and three points within four minutes of the restart. Patrick Faulkner scored another from a free after six minutes before Muff scored another two points, Moville looked in trouble. Micheal Henry and Darragh Kelly got two points back for Moville before Muff scored again on the 18th minute of the second half. Patrick Faulkner slotted over another free and this was shortly followed up by a goal from Darragh Kelly. Muff took another two points and on the 26th minute Pauric Gillen was brought down in the Muff box and the referee pointed to the spot. Gillen took the penalty himself coolly slotting it into the corner o the keeper’s left. Muff got one more point on the 29th minute to leave the final score 3-8 to 1-13. This was a fantastic display of determination, teamwork, skill and effort from a Moville team who were unbeaten in Inishowen this year. Huge congratulations from all at the club to the players; you did yourselves proud. Huge thanks to Healthwise Pharmacies for sponsoring the team’s smart new jerseys. A massive thanks to all the friends and family who came to support in big numbers, it was great to see. Finally, congratulations to Seamus Hegarty and Danny Murphy who managed the team.
