Aodh Ruadh got the points in a blustery Páirc Aoidh Ruadh, but only after weathering a second half storm from Naomh Colmcille.

The under 14s will hope Monday night marked a turning point in their season as they recorded a convincing victory over to St Naul’s. Ryan McDonald kept a clean sheet, thanks in large part to a solid defence that limited the Mountcharles men chances to get any kind of momentum going. With centre half back Adam Clarke absent, the number six jersey was worn by Eugene Doherty and he played a blinder turning over ball after ball in the Saint Naul’s attack. Harry Howarth’s well taken goal in the first half was a result of some great combination play and Aodh Ruadh led 1-5 to 0-4 at half time. With a soft breeze favouring them in the second half Aodh Ruadh brushed aside Saint Naul’s, who are better than they showed in Father Tierney Park. Shane Gillespie put in a great shift and scored two goals in the second half bringing his total for the night to 2-6. Eoin Doherty contributed 1-2 while Mark McGlynn and Senan Rooney also got on the score sheet. The workload for the night was shared evenly throughout the team; tackling strongly, maintaining possession and moving the ball well all over the field.

The under 8s hosted a blitz last Saturday in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh with sides from Four Masters, Naomh Conaill and Naomh Bríd also taking part. Conditions were less than ideal with high winds and some rain putting a dampener on things. Still, it was good to see many of our players getting their first game of the season under their belt.Thanks also to our match official’s on the day, especially Barry Travers, Sylvester Maguire and Bord na nÓg chairman David O’Donnell.
