The under 13 boys played Cloughaneely at home on Wednesday evening. The young lads put in a very spirited performance and fought for every ball. The visitors had the lions share of possession and were well ahead at the break. The second half continued in much the same fashion. But with 10 minutes to go the young lads found another gear and scored 1-6 without reply leaving the Cloughaneely lads stunned. Only the gap was too much and the revival too late the result could have been a lot different. Final score was Red Hughs 5-10, Cloghaneely 5-15.

Aodh Ruadh

Best of luck to Jim McGuinness, our own John Duffy, and everyone associated with the Donegal senior set-up as they go in search of a second All-Ireland title in just two years. Ádh mór also to Declan Bonner’s minor squad who are looking to create history by bringing a first ever Tommy Markham trophy back to the Hills. It would be a particularly special victory for Aodh Ruadh with Niall Harley captaining, Colm Kelly in the defence and Aodh Ruadh hurler Jamie Brennan in attack. Then of course we have Mick McGrath, Anthony McGrath and Gary Walsh lending their experience to cause too.

All-Ireland final ticket distribution takes place tonight, Tuesday, 16 September from 8 pm to 9 pm in Aras Aoidh Ruaidh. Successful applicants will be notified by text. Payment must be made in full on the night. The allocation procedure was transparently established and agreed at a club committee meeting last Friday. Those administering the distribution are volunteers giving their time freely and gladly for the development and promotion of Gaelic games and culture in Ballyshannon. While we appreciate that the ticket distribution will not meet with everyone’s satisfaction - due in the main to the well-documented issues surrounding the centrally driven All-Ireland final ticketing policy and allocation issues within Donegal - we must insist that our volunteers are treated at all times with respect and courtesy.

Aodh Ruadh are bringing you a pre-All-Ireland final chat night to remember,in Dorrian’s Imperial Hotel, Ballyshannon ahead of the All-Ireland final. Joe Brolly, Brian McEniff, Kevin Cassidy and Brendan Devenney make up the panel. The peerless Sean Perry will be compere on Thursday, 18th September as the final fever really starts to mount.

So come on everybody, nothing beats being there except being at the Gables this Sunday! Best of luck to both teams on the day. Donegal Abu!

The under 13s season wrapped up last Wednesday evening with a narrow 2-11 to 3-17 defeat to Naomh Muire.

The under 10 season concluded over the weekend just past. On Friday evening we had our third and final skills test of the season, the awards being presented at the Mick Shannon Tournament the following day. Winners in the third skills test were Ryan Daly (100 points), Eoghan Kelly (92 points) and Séimí Campbell (87 points). The overall skills champions for 2014 judged on their best two results were Eoghan Kelly (90.5 points), Ryan Daly (90 points) and Jack Gallagher (82 points). Honourable mention to Shane Delahunty on 81 points who just missed out. Next was the most important award as far as the coaches are concerned. These are the lads who are really working hard at their game and trying to improve it. These were the progress champions, those with the biggest improvement from their lowest score. Oisin Daly (46 point improvement), Aidan Sweeny (44 point improvement), (35 point improvement). Just missing out on the honours were Darragh Flood Dolan (33 point improvement), David Roper (32 point improvement) and Shane McGloin (31 point improvement.)

For this year’s Mick Shannon Memorial tournament, We welcomed Glencar/ Manorhamilton, St Naul’s, St Molaise Grange - the reigning champions, and Melvin Gaels.

Each team played each other on a league basis. In the senior tournament, Aodh Ruadh had narrow wins over Melvin Gaels, Saint Molaise and Saint Naul’s, before pipping Glencar/Manor by a point in the final league game. That set up what promised to be a thrilling final between the same opposition, Aodh Ruadh and Glencar Manor.

In the final, a tight battle ensued, but Aodh Ruadh’s huge commitment, and flowing football saw them come out on top, and reclaim the cup.

The junior competition saw some brilliant games in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh, but it was Aodh Ruadh and St Molaise who made it through to the final having both won three out of four. Aodh Ruadh overcame St Molaise by two points, and another close encounter was on the cards between the two in the final. And so it proved. Again, the two teams played excellent football, with little to choose between them. But St Molaise seemed to have one last burst in them as the final whistle neared, and Aodh Ruadh tired in the closing stages, with St Molaise running out three point winners.

Tom Daly was on hand to present the trophy and cup to the respective winning captains.

Many thanks to Melvin Gaels, Saint Molaise, Glencar Manorhamilton and Saint Naul’s for attending and contributing to an excellent day. Thanks also to referees on the day, Val Murray, Barry Ward, David Hoey, Niall McCready and Gerard Ferguson, to all the ladies in Aras Aoidh Ruaidh who kept over 150 people fed and watered, and to all the parents who supplied the sandwiches and treats.

Under 8 training last Friday saw the awards presentation for the 2014 skills competition. The winners in the second skills test were Killian Bradshaw, Tom Murphy and Liam Doogan. The overall winners for 2014 with the best average over the two tests were as follows: Tom Murphy (103.5 points), Finn Coady (101.5 points) and Killian Bradshaw (100.5 points). Next was the most important award as far as the coaches are concerned. These are the lads who are really working hard at their game and trying to improve it. These were the progress champions, those with the biggest improvement from their lowest score. Dylan McGuinness (40 point improvement), Liam Doogan (39 point improvement) and Jack McCadden (32 point improvement). An honourable mention to James Ward who just missed out with a 23 point improvement.

Then on Saturday the under 8s travelled to Ballintra for the Southern finals blitz. They fielded two strong teams and turned in a brilliant performance. All players stepped up to the mark showing the skills they have developed during the year. Playing five games each with the grand finale between Ballyshannon’s Team 1 v Team 1A, with the winner being Team Aodh Ruadh. The players who pulled on the Aodh Ruadh jersey were: Killian Bradshaw, Barry Campbell, Eoin Cassidy, Finn Coady, Ronan Delahunty, Eoin Doogan, Liam Doogan, Stephen Doran, Cormac Finnegan, Odhran Gillespie, Tom Holland, Donagh Kelly, Michael Keown, Hugh Óg Maguire, Cian McDonald, Dylan McGuinness, Garvey Meade, James Monaghan, Tom Murphy, Conor O’Mahoney, Daire O’Mahoney, Ted O’Donnell, Cillian Slevin, Darragh Summerville and James Ward.

The senior hurlers season concluded last Saturday with a 4-9 to 0-9 defeat to St Eunan’s in O’Donnell Park. It has been a curate’s egg of a season for the seniors, but full credit to Kevin Loughlin and his back room team for their hard work all year, as well as all the lads who gave it their all on the pitch in 2014.

The under 16s travelled to Scarvey, Buncrana last Thursday to play the home team in the semi-final of the championship. The lads put in their best performance of the year. This Buncrana team have never been beaten up through the age levels, but they came very close to it last week. Aodh Ruadh hurled with great belief and determination and led at half time 0-10 to 1-2. As expected Buncrana started the second half with a bang and got the first five points to level the game. For the last 20 minutes it was tit for tat in a rip-roaring game. With five minutes to go Buncrana led by a point when the ref controversially disallowed an Aodh Ruadh goal. Our lads never gave up and unfortunately lost narrowly 3-9 to 1-12. It was a great display from all the squad who were a credit to the club and themselves with their discipline on the night. They have given great commitment all year, a small panel of only 18 players should be very proud of their achievements this season.

On the same night the under 12s travelled to Burt to play the home team in the under 12 C final, we had a very young team with seven of the starting 11 being under 10. Try as hard as they might the lads just found the task too much against a fine Burt team who ran out convincing winners on the night. Next up for the under 12s is our annual Aodh Ó Dálaigh tournament which takes place on Sunday 28th September.

On Sunday morning our under 8s played Four Masters in a number of games in Father Tierney Park. Many thanks to Four Masters for coming down to play us at such short notice as the all-county blitz scheduled to be played on Sunday was rescheduled late on Friday night. We hope to travel to Four Masters for a return game before the end of the season.

Thanks to everyone who so generously supported our family Fund-Raiser initiative. Club President Owen Roe O’Neill made the draw in Aras Aoidh Ruaidh on Monday evening and whose number did he draw out only Owen Rua O’Neill! The prize was two stand tickets for the All-Ireland final and double Room and dinner for two in the Croke Park Hotel on Saturday night.

The television in Aras Aoidh Ruaidh was stolen from the premises last week. This significantly reduces the amenity of the hall in Aras as it was used for presentations, displays of pictures after blitzes, videos during wet days in the summer camp, and various other purposes. The door into the Aras was vandalised in the process. The theft is a disheartening loss of a valuable social amenity which was put in place as a significant cost. Any information which leads to its return will be gratefully received. Contact any club committee member, or the local Garda station.

There was no winner of the Aodh Ruadh Lotto Jackpot of €2,300. The numbers drawn were 6, 7, 9, 12, 13 and 14. In the lucky dip €20 went to Marie Gallagher, Erne Street; Jimmy Rafferty, Tonragee; Olivia Magee, Assaroe View; Philomena Begley, Finner Avenue; and Shane O’Donnell, Ardfarna. Next week’s draw for a jackpot of €2,400 takes place at 8.30pm in Dorrian’s bar on Monday.
