Congratulations to Aaron Breslin who was part of the Aodh Ruadh hurling side which emphatically claimed the U-16 county title at the weekend with victory over Buncrana.
CLG Ard a Ratha celebrated its 90th birthday recently. The strides that have been made, both on the field of play and in terms of general development and facilities off of it, means that the club is excellently poised to move forward towards its centenary mark in fine stead.
Mass for the deceased will be held this Thursday at the Church of the Holy Family, commencing at 7.30pm.
Pride of place this week goes to our club minor team, who won the County Division One League title on Sunday in O’Donnell Park, defeating Cloughaneely on a 0-11 to 1-6 scoreline.
The lads showed great character to bounce back after their defeat in the Championship final the previous Sunday to take the title for only the second time in the club’s history - 2004 was the previous win.
The U-13 team’s campaign ended at the county semi-final stage on Saturday, when St Eunan’s were the victors in Glenties on a 3-14 to 3-4 scoreline. The team were only four points behind at half-time, 0-8 to 0-4, but the stronger Letterkenny team ran out deserved winners despite a gutsy display by the Ardara boys. Credit is due to the team and coaches, Ted Breslin, Noel Gallagher and Pauric Brennan for their efforts with the team, who showed great improvement on previous years and hopefully will continue in the same vein next year at U-14 level.
Coaching continues on Saturday mornings in the Community Centre from 11am to 1pm. Children born in the years 2004-2007 inclusive welcome to attend. Years 2007 and 2006 from 11am to 12 noon and 2004 and 2005 from 12 noon to 1pm. The minor board will be commencing a national schools indoor league after the mid term break.
