The minors lost to Naomh Conaill 0-8 to 1-6 in their championship play-off game last Wednesday in Convoy. It was a very evenly contested match, but Glenties just about got over the line in the end. Aodh Ruadh were down Colm Kelly, Oisín Rooney and Matthew Maguire, but gave a good account of themselves. Calum O’Halloran got the Ernesiders off the mark after nine minutes, before Nathan Boyle sent over a 45 off the deck. Philip Patton added two further points in a first half where Kevin Warnock also pulled off a penalty save to make the half-time score 1-2 to 0-4 in favour of Naomh Conaill. There were further scores from Shane McGrath and Philip Patton in the second half, but Aodh Ruadh just couldn’t reel their opponents in. They were also unlucky in the end to see an number of goal chances coming back off the framework. Some of Aodh Ruadh’s best performances came in defence with Colm Doyle going well at corner back and Eddie Lynch doing an excellent job on Naomh Conaill danger man Ethan O’Donnell. Also doing well for Ballyshannon were the four substitutes introduced over the course of the game, Jason Granaghan, Conal and Dónal Sweeny and Sean Taylor.

The senior domestic season came to a finish last Saturday with us beating Round Towers in the Conway Cup final, It has been a great journey for these bunch of lads after the disappointments of the previous season to come out and show great grit and determination to win all in front of them.
Credit must go to new manager Barney Breen who in his first year back in London since the mid-eighties has brought his own style and ideas to the table and it has proven a journey worth taking.
For the record our senior team has won Conway and Tipperary Cups. League, championship and our sevens tournament with our reserve team winning the league and championship.
