Dungloe U16s reached the regional final in the championship after a cracking game at home to Ardara. The Dungloe lads got of to a great start with an Adam Neely goal and Ryan Greene hitting 4 first half points put them in a good position at half time. Ardara pushed forward in the second half and pulled the score back to within 5 points but a goal from sub Dillon O’Donnell and a point from Darragh Mc Gee put the game out of reach. This game was played in front of one of the biggest crowds seen at an under age competition at Rosses Park such was the high standard of football played by both teams. Dungloe now play Ballyshannon in the final.

The Martello Adventure Race will take place again this year as part of the Mary from Dungloe festival. The event will take place on Saturday 4th of August 2012 at the Maghery community center. This year the event will include categories for under 12’s, and under 16’s as part of a mini triathlon with reduced distances starting at an earlier time of 1pm, the senior event will start at 2.30pm where a new revised 5km route using a natural loop around the Maghery grave yard over to the beach finishing at the center will take place. So further details see Dungloe’s GAA face book page @ http://www.facebook.com/CLGAnClochanLiath and click on the events link. Participants can also book on-line @ http://www.runireland.com/events/martello-adventure-event-dungloe or pay on the day. The entry fee is €20 per senior individual, €50 per relay team, and €3 for the underage participants.

AODH RUADH: The club extends their sincere condolences to the Gallagher family on the recent sad passing of Eithne Gallagher. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal.

Congratulations to Donegal who progressed to their second Ulster final in as many years with victory over Tyrone last Saturday. There was Aodh Ruadh involvement on the day with Anthony Donagher taking part in the half time games, where he scored a fine point. There was further Ballyshannon representation with John Joe Gettins also playing. We have pictures from the victory on aodhruadh.org. Now might be an opportune time to remind those who have not yet paid membership that it is still possible to become an Aodh Ruadh member for 2012. Anyone who becomes a member at this stage will not have a vote at AGM, but they will still be able to apply for tickets through the club, although members paid before the 31st March cut-off will be given preference in all events. Contact Emma Gaughan (0863039610), John Hughes (0876431805), or any committee member if you wish to become a member.

Saint Naul’s conceded their final league game against the Aodh Ruadh minors. This sees Ballyshannon progress to the Southern League final where we await the winners of section 1 where the Killybegs / Naomh Ultan combination Saint John’s are currently leading the way.

Aodh Ruadh progressed to the Southern Regional final with a hard-fought 2-11 to 1-6 win over Naomh Mhuire in Father Tierney Park. Aodh Ruadh battled through the first half, going in at the break leading by two points, thanks in the main to a Shane McGrath goal and an superbly taken point. Niall Harley had a huge role to play in the win, working like a dog in midfield. Defensively the half back line once again excelled with Calum ‘Cookie’ O’Halloran and Conor Kennedy in particularly fine form. Colm Doyle and Matthew Maguire were very solid in the full back line. Up front Shane McGrath was a little bit of class, while Philip Patton worked very hard and finished the game with six points to his credit. Oisín Roper was another who put in a good, hard shift at half forward, While Stephen Thompson was in flying form after his introduction, bagging himself a goal and two points. We have pictures of the game up on aodhruadh.org. Aodh Ruadh’s opponents in the final will be Dungloe who slayed a fancied Ardara outfit and will present doughty opposition. The final is penciled in for Monday, 16th July, but we await final confirmation of date, time and venue.

Aodh Ruadh under 14s lost their first round first leg championship clash to Four Masters by 3-5 to 2-14. The teams traded scores in the first 5 minutes until Donegal town opened up a six point lead. While our defence was holding firm, with Brendan Gillespie in particular having a good game, we struggled to get scores until a fantastic goal from Shane Dorrian brought us back into the game and a good save by Mark Gallagher saw Ballyshannon four points behind at half. Aodh Ruadh started the second half strongly but failed to capitalise on the amount of possession we had with some wayward shooting. A goal by Shane McGrath half way through the second half put the Ernesiders back in touch, but again our inability to convert possession into scores was our downfall with Donegal adding points late on. Mark Gallagher was sound in goals, with Nathan Boyle and Jason Granaghan strong in defence. Up front Shane Dorrian, Dylan Gallagher and Ryan McKenna were prominent, however Brendan Gillespie was the stand out performer throughout. The under 14s next game in the championship is away to Dungloe on 18th July with the throw in at 7.30pm.

The under 12 Willie Rogers tournament takes place this Saturday, 7th July. Games throw in at 11am, with teams taking part including Aodh Ruadh, Bundoran, Erne Gaels, Devenish and Melvin Gaels. Aodh Ruadh players are to be at the park for 10.30am. All parents are asked to help with the catering on the day by providing at least a loaf of sandwiches. There is a training session for the under 12 footballers this Friday at 4.15pm.

They also played Nauls in the Brian McEniff Hotels championship last night, Wednesday July 4th, having beaten Kilcar in a very exciting match last week that ended 4-11 to 1-11 in favour of Bundoran who had trailed 1-7 to 0-2 at half-time. They are also scheduled to play in a county league semi-final on Wednesday July 11th – again the same day as the u-21s and minors which also presents a problem as Conor and John McEniff are part of the management of all three teams scheduled to play on the 11th.

The u-12s play Naomh Ultan at mid-day on Saturday in the Division 2 semi-final at a venue yet to be decided although again there may be a fixture clash as the annual Willie Rodgers tournament run by the Aodh Ruadh club is scheduled for the same day. There are no games for the u-8s or u-10s this weekend. The Supervalue Town League will be on this Thursday at 3.00. Management of the Community Girls u-12 team, heading to the All-Ireland finals on August 18th as Ulster champions, are still looking for a sponsor for 22 tracksuits.

Once again under strength minor team suffered a defeat to Letterkenny Gaels on Friday evening in Letterkenny. The boys started well against a strong breeze and took the lead, great ball carrying by Jamie Heena and Kyle Black ensured that they performed well against the wind, but two late goals before half time proved a big blow. The wind died in the second half thus depriving Milford of that advantage, the Gaels started the second half very strongly and a few quick scores for them ended the game as a contest, the boys never gave in though and battled right to the end but were punished near the end by more Gaels goals. This ends Milfords league campaign, after a positive start to the league with 3 wins from 3 against local rivals Fanad, Termon and Downings, 3 defeats against St.Michaels, Glenswilly and Letterkenny Gaels ended hopes of a regional final. There is still the championship to look forward to. Best for Milford on a difficult evening were Jamie Heena and Kane Barrett
